9/30/2007 Womenfolk


On this first Sunday of KFAI's Fall Pledge Drive, I was joined by KFAI listener and volunteer Ross Johnson. We got you in shape for the upcoming Twin Cities Marathon:http://www.mtcmarathon.org by playing running songs on my 2nd Annual Running Wild Special! Eliza Blue:http://www.elizablue.net also stopped by the studio to debut her new CD and wow us all with some live tunes--big thanks to her!

And thanks to all of you who ran to your phones to pledge your support of Womenfolk today on the show! If you haven't pledged, you can do so now by clicking here:pledge or by calling (612) 375-9030.

Next Sunday folk/bluegrass favorite Becky Schlegel:http://www.beckyschlegel.com returns to Womenfolk for a live in-studio performance--hope you can join us next Sunday at 11 a.m.!

With love thanks for all your support, Ellen.
