10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters
Marc Black is an "Everyman" in today's folk and acoustic music scene. He's equally home singing and picking a traditional blues number as he is his own finely crafted compositions reminiscent of the musical stylings of Tim Hardin and Randy Newman. Add to the mix deep-felt music composed for his "Stroke of Genius" project dedicated to the healing process for a close friend felled by a stroke. Then stir in tour-de-force ditties such as his paean to coffee, a song of praise for his beloved New York Mets and a humorous appreciation of MSNBC political commentator Rachel Maddow.
Marc Black graced WSHU's Studio A for a 75-minute session of song and discussion about his career and life experiences in advance of a party at the Town Crier Café in Pawling, N.Y. for the release of his new CD, "Pictures of the Highway." You can find out much more about Marc at www.marcblack.com
We finished the night with recorded selections from recent singer/songwriter independent releases under the Waterbug umbrella and two classic pieces from Tim Hardin. A tip of the hat once again to WSHU Chief Engineer Paul Litwinovich who mixed the sound.
