Dearest Mother

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

Sunday is Mother’s Day and this is our annual musical tribute to moms the world over. This show is a mix of new and old favorites about mothers and mothering, with a set devoted to Julia Ward Howe’s original Mother’s Day call to pacifism and disarmament. There’s also a humorous set thrown in to bring a bit of levity to the proceedings.
