Morning Edition on Tuesday, July 23: My Name is Nancy The Journals of Nancy Hanks Lincoln

First of all, I must warn that this book is INTENDED FOR MATURE AUDIENCES due to adult situations.  The second thing I must stress is that this book is a work of fiction.  But for anyone that has passed through or lives in Rutherford County, NC, it certainly could be true, because it is based on historical fact as well as legends that have been passed on through the generations ever since the late 1700's when the story began.

Monday Night July 22nd at 8pm: STEVE GOODMAN - LIVE AT THE EARL OF OLD TOWN

Monday night the 25th, we celebrate the birthday of the late singer-songwriter Steve Goodman with a concert recorded 8/14/78 at an intimate Chicago nightclub that was the launching pad for Goodman, his close friend John Prine, and others.  Goodman was among the first to bring a witty sense of humor, engaging storytelling, and variety of guitar styles to the otherwise more monotone folksinger style of the day.  Enjoy his captivating stage presence as we spotlight him for your Spindale Cycle.
