A Mixed Bag

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

Another mixed bag of a show, including a “look back” at three seminal figures of folk music in the last century Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and Gordon Lightfoot. The second hour was devoted to music from flatpicking great Orrin Star and balladeer Kate Campbell, both of whom are appearing in our region in the days ahead.

Columbia Records has just remastered 15 of Dylan’s early albums and enhanced six of them. This show presents selections from the first four. Cohen’s work comes from a CD issued three years ago that is a live recording of concerts from 1979, while Lightfoot's classic railroad trilogy is found on a brand new tribute album from north of the U.S. border.

A few touches of dobro on rock songs started the night rolling.
