Today at 2 p.m., our friend Mary Lucia returns to the airwaves after some time away. In a letter published to The Current's website a week ago, Mary wrote, "I'm returning to work and genuinely feel excited to reconnect with my buddies at The Current, and of course with you my friends, the listeners."

We're really excited to have Mary back in the office and back on the air, and we'd like to welcome her back with music. It turns out there are a lot of songs that have "Mary" in the lyrics or title. Why? As songwriter George M. Cohan put it, Mary is "a grand old name."

So for today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what songs do you want to hear that have "Mary" in the title or lyrics? Send us your requests.

Welcome back, Mary Lucia!
