Ringing In The New Year/Celebrating Hanukkah

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

The New Year will be 24 hours away as this edition of "Profiles in Folk" ends, but we're celebrating early. This is an annual show that uses folk and acoustic music to highlight and mark the beginning of another calendar year. This year we're sprinkling in a bit of klezmer music in the mix since we're in the sixth night of Hanukkah as the show airs.
