8/9/2009 Womenfolk


In preparation for Dar Williams':http://www.darwilliams.com August 21st show at the Minnesota Zoo:http://www.mnzoo.org, I aired a part of an interview I recorded with her last September. I gave away a pair of tickets to that show and the August 15th Tracy Chapman:http://www.tracychapman.com show. I also played new music from the Indigo Girls, The Wailin' Jennys and Jo Serrapere. If you missed the show, check out the archived version here!

Next Sunday Amanda Balagur will sit in for me while I'm attending a cousin's wedding in the Adirondack Mountains. She'll spin an eclectic mix of women's acoustic, indie and local music. Hope you can tune in for it! -efs.

P.S. Big thanks to all of you who have become new KFAI members and pledged to Womenfolk during our summer web campaign...remember, it's never too late to support independent community radio!
