A Bit Of Folk Foolishness

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

This is our closest show to April 1, so why not get in a bit of folk foolishness and a few flights of fancy? It’s an evening of fun as I explore the condition of folk music and folk musicians, how the folk revivalists are handling the aging process and just what they are doing to the music with their parodies! For closers, there’s very skilled storytelling (and guitar playing) from the late Gamble Rogers.
