10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters
The first hour was devoted to welcoming in this New Year including some ritual songs. The second hour took note of those folk and acoustic performers who died in 2002. Obviously, we couldn’t program music from all, but we verbally acknowledged their passings.
Those who departed this Earth during the past year included Alan Lomax, Dave Van Ronk, Hamish Henderson, Dave “Snaker” Ray, Derek Bell, John Jackson, Lonnie Donegan, Wade Hemsworth, Tony Rose, Bobby Clancy, Dave Carter, Mickey Newbury, Ola Belle Reed, Tim Rose, Gene Bluestein, Barbara Karns, Waylon Jennings, Jim McReynolds, Mark Vann, David Grant, entrepreneur Seymour Solomon and critic John S. Wilson.
