1. Mark Mulcahy’s most recent album is the first since his wife passed away in 2008. After her death he had to parent his twin 3 year old girls on his own. Colleagues and friends responded by organizing benefit concerts and a tribute CD (of covers of his songs) to help Mulcahy stay afloat financially during that time.
He explains to Fresh Air’s Terry Gross how his album “Dear Mark J. Mulcahy, I love you" got its name:

It’s a note I got from somebody. At the time when I got it I just had it, I didn’t think about how to use it. I hung it on the wall. And when I was trying to think of a title for my record, I walked past it and I thought, that’s sort of the way because of the way I made the record and because of my life at that moment, I felt very lucky to have a lot of people [who] I know cared about me. I thought it summed up something about not only just the record but just everything. One day I was driving and I realized that it’s kind of like a movie title and the whole of the information of what the album was — was in one sentence.
