Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits holds a special place in my musical heart for many reasons; not least of which, Dire Straits, led by the Knopfler brothers, came onto the musical scene with their first album, Dire Straits, 1978, at the height of the dreaded Disco craze.

I happened upon an early recording of Iris Dement's "Our Town" from the early 1990's, a song that played a large part in classic TV series Northern Exposure's swan song. That memorable last TV show signing off this beautiful classic really stuck with me.
