10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters
This is a show featuring artists whose music has never before been aired on "Profiles in Folk." With only 52 shows each year - which equates to about 110-plus hours of broadcast time annually since we do exceed the two hours on some weeks - there will always a large number of artists who for a wide variety of reasons do not get programmed. The reasons start with the arrival annually of overwhelming numbers of CDs and work up to the fact that mine is a generalist, traditional-leaning folk show (many weeks with a theme) that simply can't cover all the bases of this wonderfully wide world of folk and acoustic music.
This is the first in what I plan to be a series of occasional shows offering up a "first airing". Listener response was quite voluminous and encouraging, as it should be for these artists. Mike Morello and Dave King currently reside in Connecticut, while Melissa Gibson grew up in Woodbridge, Connecticut.
