Ry Cooder for President!
An appreciation of some the wide-ranging and musically incredible contributions that Ry Cooder has made, some fantastic musicians that we will be hearing live on the VPR tour to Cape Breton in October, and even some music that can be traced back to Robbie Burns on the occasion of the 254-and-a-half anniversary of his birth!
Please note: This show will air on Sunday July 21st from 7:00-10:00pm !
