We open the show with new selections. Then, the Gem of Bluegrass focuses on Tom Dooley, an American ballad that was given new life by a pop recording. Later, we talk to songwriters Becky Buller and Elizabeth Schrum. It isn’t easy to find the time to sit down and write together. But when they do, they have satisfying outcomes. The show concludes with a couple of songs that treat small activities. To contact host Phil Nusbaum, the email address is pnusbaum@bitstream.net.
