Celebrating the 246th Birthday Of Robert Burns

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

This annual show marks the anniversary of the birth on Jan. 25, 1759 in Alloway in Ayrshire, Scotland of Robert Burns — “Caledonia’s Bard,” the “ploughman’s poet” and, as Scottish musicologist Francis Collinson describes him, “the greatest compiler, restorer and editor of all” and the man “who changed the whole face of Scottish music.”
