A Fall Season Preview

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

Summer’s drawing to a close and the coffee houses, major venues, summer’s end festivals and house concerts will be resuming. This is a small selection of a few of the performers who will be opening the music season at several venues in our Connecticut and Long Island broadcast area. In addition, there’s a set devoted to our old acquaintance John Redgate, who appeared in two “in-the-round” sessions on Profiles in Folk. John, a native of Bridgeport whose musical credits include a stint as Paul McCartney in Broadway’s “Beatlemania”, is fighting cancer and his friends have scheduled a fund raiser and CD release party for Sunday, Sept. 20 from 2 to 5 p.m. at City Lights Gallery in downtown Bridgeport.
