4/26/2009 Womenfolk


Big thanks to all of you who pledged during KFAI's recent Spring Pledge Drive...Thanks to you, we reached our $100,000 goal just before midnight on Friday!

Today on Womenfolk we debuted several new releases and enjoyed some April rain songs and tunes for Earth Day. We also celebrated National Poetry Month...If you missed it, check out the archived show here!

Hope you have a great week and that you can tune in next week when we have some guests talk about a great new Celtic music venue presenting two of my favorite Irish duos -- Norah Rendell Brian Miller:http://www.norahrendell.com/norahandbrian.html and Matt Shannon Heaton:http://www.mattandshannonheaton.com/! -efs.
