10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters
This is a program in two parts.
The first hour takes another look and listen at religious expression in folk music. On Saturday night, Jews begin the celebration of Passover, which recalls the flight of Israelites from slavery and bondage in Egypt more than 3,000 years ago. Passover celebrates freedom and the liberation of Jews from oppression.
The second hour is a generous sampling of the music made in 1969 by the late Fred Holstein, for decades a leading figure in the Chicago folk scene before his death in January 2004. The music is from a new release, “Live At The Earl Of Old Town”, recorded on June 30, 1969 by folk radio legend Rick Warren, and offers a welcome retrospective of the music of the 1960s as well a wonderful musical portrait of Holstein. The album was issued by friends of Fred Holstein and is dedicated to keeping his music and memory alive. See www.fredholstein.com for much more information.
