Ringing In The New Year

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

Ringing In The New Year “Profiles in Folk” rang in the New Year, New Century and New Millennium five years ago and here we are again on a New Year’s Eve. We’ve got the champagne on ice and a glittering musical ball of folk and acoustic music that will help you count down to 2005 — in a very quiet way.
