Celebrating America's 234th Birthday

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

America is 234 years young on Sunday and the candles are being placed on the birthday cake with this edition of Profiles in Folk. This is our annual unabashed birthday bash for the nation - a bit of patriotism; a nod to revolutionary, radical, pamphleteer and political philosopher Thomas Paine; a look back at America's folk music heritage, and a set of visions of and for America.
