WSHU’s Spring Fundraiser

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

This program represents our part of WSHU’s Spring Fundraiser. Our thanks go out to those listeners who took the time during the program to make a pledge, either by phone or on the Internet. Your support of folk and acoustic music is greatly appreciated.

Our thanks especially to award-winning author Dr. Kent Gustavson, who contributed copies of his fine biography of Doc Watson, Blind But Now I See, to be used as pledge “thank you” gifts for contributors of $90 or more. Hence, our emphasis placed on Doc Watson’s music this show. Kent achieved on his PhD in classical composition at Stony Brook University over on Long Island and while there was a “Profiles in Folk” listener.

Our thanks extend also to WSHU Chief Engineer Paul Litwinovich who pitched our show and arranged for an iPod nano to be awarded to one lucky contributor during the two hour period. Paul’s spouse Ellen also received a bouquet for answering the phones during the show.
