10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters
With the exception of one album from the McKassons, this is a summer bouquet of beautiful new releases for our listeners that features music from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. The first hour-plus highlighted four highly-recommended new releases from the American side, while the second hour concentrated on music of Scotland, much of it enjoyable old wine in new bottles, including a long-awaited release from the legendary Archie Fisher.
For the Gordons’ set, I chose two songs with funereal themes with a hymn in the middle in remembrance of folk-related artists who died in recent months, including Erik Darling, Artie Traum, Connecticut’s Matt Nozzolio, Janet Boyer of Missouri, English singer/songwriter Al Jones, Bo Diddley, photographer David Gahr, former Sing Out! Editor Bob Norman, Chris Gaffney, Bill Bolick of the Blue Sky Boys and, of course, Bruce Phillips, whom we memorialized in May with an entire show.
