A Musical Bouquet For Mom

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

Sunday marks the 100th anniversary of President Woodrow Wilson designating the second Sunday in May as “Mother’s Day.” This is a program that opens with a gentle musical bouquet for mom from two former Profiles guests who utilize the sweet sounds of Appalachian dulcimer in their song making. It then kicks into high gear with a tribute to moms, including pieces written by musicians specifically for their moms or wives and examining the arduous task of mothering.
