Homespun - May 6, 2023

Tom Ball

His rich baritone and gift for melodies made him one of the most popular artists of the 1970’s. On Homespun this week we’ll celebrate the life of Gordon Lightfoot who passed recently at age 84. We’ll hear songs performed by him and covered by Ian & Sylvia, The Country Gentlemen, Tim O’Brien, Marty Robbins, Tony Rice, and others who were influenced by him and he by them! Tune in Saturday at 6PM!

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.
