How about some barefoot music this morning?

Today I thought I’d highlight Peace Tribe Radio, a Wednesday morning radio show that features all sorts of songs from the 1960s and early 1970s, the halcyon days of barefooting.
Though actually, the 1950s might have been the halcyon days, since the 1960s was when shopkeepers started to react against bare feet.
Here’s a cute little song from 1947. It’s from the album “Hank Fort Sings Her Own Great Song”. Hank Fort was from Nashville and gained a fair bit of fame by writing radio jingles and then other fairly well-known songs. She was born Alma Louise Middleton Hankins Fort in 1914 and died in 1973.
Somehow I wonder if the song may have been a bit autobiographical.
