On the show this week, I feature the gentle and true music from Adler and Hearne, as well as the deceptively deep songs of Cary Cooper. I’ll also play songs from new albums by Tommy Womack, Andra Suchy, and the Atomic Duo, to name just a few. Join me this Saturday at 8pm for Fresh Folk on Utah Public Radio.
