I had planned to air an interview I did with Susan Werner a few years ago, since she is playing tonight in New Paltz, and she is one of our featured performers for our 8th annual WJFF Spring Folk Benefit. Well it has disappeared! I began looking at 6am and spent 3 hours looking annoying everyone who came within my path.
So, I put together a theme on disasters, tragedies, you know boats sinking, devastating fires, wars...but I left them all at home on my piano bench. I guess that figures.... forgetting a planned show on tragedies.....
So this may all prove serendipitous. In my car are the handful of CDs that I have been listening to over and over very happily in preparation for writing a decent review on some of them. This was a relaxing show to do.
So today on Folk Plus, "What I had in my car"
