With A Little Help From My Friends

This is simply a night of eclectic music with the first hour comprising music that had been recommended to me by the following friends: Cucanandy by WNHU's Wendy Cohn; Jubilant Bridge by Good Folk Coffeehouse proprietor Brandi Hayden; Andy Wilkinson by my son Matt, proprietor of The Postcrypt coffeehouse at Columbia University; and Neil Woodward by WDET programmer Matt Watroba.

I finished the night with fine bluegrass off a mix of old and new releases.
