10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters
| We welcomed back to "Profiles in Folk" John Whelan, our good friend and seven-time All-Ireland button accordion champion, who was just voted the Top Button Accordion Player in a poll conducted by the Irish Music Association. John has several shows this week in the WSHU Public Radio listening area and it gave us the opportunity for nearly 75 minutes to discuss his latest musical ventures and treat listeners to his immensely talented button accordion playing live from our studios. He's also celebrating in 2010 40 years in the music business and 30 years since he immigrated to the United States.
Recordings from three selected performers who are also appearing in our broadcast area this weekend were sandwiched around "John Whelan: Live in WSHU's Studio A".
