To Welcome In the Spring

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

Although spring arrived on March 20, temperatures here in the Northeast only turned “spring-like” this past week. Thus, we welcome in spring during the program’s first hour and offer a preview in the second hour of a few artists gracing our broadcast area this month with live performances as well as highlighting a special benefit concert in Connecticut for bluegrass superstar Tony Rice, who for the past three years has been suffering overwhelming medical problems.
