Remembering Our Vets & Then A Wee Bit Of The Blues

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

Veterans Day is Monday and the first 75 minutes of this show are devoted to remembering those who have served in the armed forces from the American Revolutionary War to our present engagements in Iraq and Afghanistan. The music touches on many of the conflicts during those 227-plus years.

I finished up the evening with a bit of blues from Toby Walker and Del Ray. Walker will be appearing in our broadcast area this weekend at the Branford Folk Music Society.
