One Fine Song Deserves Another

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

This is a show with a whimsical but hopefully educational theme: Differing interpretations of a song that many times transforms that piece of music into an entirely different entity. Along the way, there's a look at the traditional vs. contemporary debate, a bit of parody and bluegrass covers of classic rock and roll.
