(aired 3/25/11)


Spring officially started last Sunday, March 20th. In celebration, today’s show is celebrating the new season. As a range of musical artists share, we’ve been “waiting for the sun,” but the “snow is gone,” and now we’ll “swing into spring”… along with many other twists on the topic. (Of course, a range of weather types prevail in this particular season, as you’ll hear me gripe about, ahem, appreciate during the show.) Spring, beautiful spring…
