A Mixed Bag

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

We were delayed getting to the station for this program and WSHU Chief Engineer Paul Litwinovich graciously took over in a pinch and started the music rolling for the first 35 minutes. This was a show with several different styles – a bit of bluegrass, Irish music to get listeners ready for the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day celebration and the wonderful box playing and song selections of England’s Brian Peters, who was appearing in our broadcast area this weekend.
