Winter Pledge Drive/Old Friends

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

It’s our turn in WSHU Public Radio’s Winter Pledge Drive and to help we brought back a cast of old friends who have released new albums in recent months. My thanks to every listener who made a pledge and especially “Ann of Norwalk” who was generous and offered a $500 challenge grant that spurred pledges in our second hour. I also send a bouquet out to WSHU Chief Engineer Paul Litwinovich, who led the pitching, and his wife Ellen, who manned the phones and computers.
