Love O’ Love

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

Valentine’s Day for 2013 may be 22 hours old but we’re still in love and this edition of Profiles in Folk offers up two hours of classic love songs — both traditional and contemporary. The emphasis this year falls on the positive side of the love-o-meter, so just a bit of lost love, unrequited love and false love.
