Homespun - August 21, 2022

The Band.jpg

…The Year 1972 was an outstanding time for music-especially live music. On the next Homespun, we’ll celebrate the 50- year Anniversary of The Band’s seminal live album “Rock of Ages”-recorded at the Academy of Music in New York City on the eve of 1971-72. We’ll also hear a track from Ry Cooder’s 1972 masterpiece “Into the Purple Valley”, and much more!

Tom Ball is the host of 'Homespun' on WCMU, and is also a marketing representative for the station. He is responsible for securing program sponsorships for both WCMU Public Radio and WCMU Public Television.
