A Bit Of British Folk Rock

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

After five consecutive live, in-studio shows with visiting artists, I decided to forego a program of love songs for Valentine’s Day program and program a modest bit of classic British folk rock, a few love songs included. Plus, a little electricity over the radio waves perhaps warmed up listeners here in the Northeast who are experiencing one of the coldest winters in memory. We finished up with selections from England’s Bob Fox, Deirdre Flint and Ed Gerhard, all of whom are appearing in our broadcast area.
