Here’s today’s show heard earlier today at and to be heard eventually on WNUR 89.3FM. Plenty of new tunes again including new music from Sunshine Boys, Watkins Family Hour and Lucinda Williams. We feature a Birthday salute to my daughter who turned 37 today, a mini concert calendar – Susan Werner and Dar Williams tomorrow – Sunday May 3rd at 6pm on Susan’s Facebook page and we finish things off with a Malo tune that was talked about earlier this week on the Steve Dahl Show. Enjoy.
