It was a packed morning with free tickets for listeners, some great requests, and Meg Hutchinson:http://www.meghutchinson.com calling in, looking forward to her next visit to the Twin Cities. She’ll be at the Cedar Cultural Center:http://www.thecedar.org on a co-bill with Kris Delmhorst. Both singer-songwriters have new records, and I’m sure they’ll share the stage for more than one song on April 10th.
