It’s a celebration of roots music to appeal across the generations.
I started as a volunteer with WMNF in 1979, before we went on the air. Have done all kinds of cool stuff since. Folk shows , interviewed numerous artists, Richard Schindell my favorite, wrote a song about Ronny Elliot, performed in multiple tribute shows ( thanks, Flee ) and did some exciting Radio Theater ( thanks Shelia, Matt & both Daves ) . Met the love of my life at the station and married her. Hard to top that.
There is a song with a chorus that proudly says " I've had a hell of a life". Indeed I have. Especially with the 88.5 tribe.
