On-Air Show:  Pie for Breakfast

Show Genre:  singer/songwriter

Show Description: I play a whole variety of singer/songwriter music, typically in a folk vein. I dabble in some rock, blues, and funk as well, just whatever I'm feeling for the day, so long as it fits the singer/songwriter bill! Some artists you may hear on my show include Ray LaMontagne, Brandi Carlile, Amos Lee, Bob Dylan, and Jenny Lewis. You never know! Pie For Breakfast is the sweetest way to start your day. (Yes, it rhymes). It's a slice of singer/songwriter tunes that will hopefully give you the inspiration to start your Saturday morning off right. I try to find tracks that combine great musicianship with great songwriting, as well as transcend genres. The flavor varies week to week, so be sure to tune in!

On-Air Schedule:  Pie for Breakfast Saturday 9-10am/Luther Spotlight Sunday 4:30pm
