The Apple Doesn't Fall Far: Celebrate Father's Day on Rdio

This Sunday, Dad gets his due — it’s Father’s Day. Don’t forget to make him feel special for everything he’s done for you: send a card, take him out to a ball game, or sit back and have a chat. While you do that, bump the appropriate playlist.

The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far is a compilation of songs by musical fathers and their kin: Bob and Jakob Dylan, Frank and Nancy Sinatra, and many more. Have we forgotten any good ones? Add it to our collaborative playlist above and have a very happy Father’s Day.

Still not sure what to get Dad to say thanks? If you love Rdio, he might just love it too. Give him a gift certificate.
