A Tribute to Dear Old Dad

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

This is the weekend of the Father’s Day holiday and most of this show features a tribute to the old man. But, first I opened with tunes from Natalie MacMaster who will bring her Cape Breton fiddling prowess and energy this weekend to New Haven’s annual Arts & Ideas Festival and with songs from Rani Arbo and Daisy Mayhem who will be appearing at the 25th Annual Green River Festival in Greenfield, Mass. next month. The festival generously offered us tickets to award listeners during the next few weeks.
