Monday Night December 30th at 8pm: JOHN HARTFORD - Aereo-Plain

This New Year's Eve Eve, we've got this cult classic of a 1971 masterpiece in its entirety.  Three factors that make this a favorite: For starters, the lineup of Norman Blake on guitar, Tut Taylor on dobro, Vassar Clements on fiddle, and Randy Scruggs.  Then there are the songs..."Turn Your Radio On", "Up On the Hill Where They Do the Boogie", "Back in the Goodle Days", and the title track.  Finally, it's John Hartford, an artist that does a good job defining the overall WNCW sound.
