Jumping Across The Pond

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

This program jumps across the Atlantic Ocean to place a spotlight on United Kingdom artists and their music. A large part of the show was devoted to a marvelous 4-CD box set of the music of The Watersons, one of the seminal singing families (and then some) in the British — indeed, the world — folk revival.
