Sunday Supper: 08/18/19
In 1985 it was The Highwaymen, the outlaw country supergroup of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and Kris Kristofferson. In 2019, it was time for four women - Brandi Carlile, Natalie Hemby, Maren Morris, and Amanda Shires - to team up as The Highwomen. They made a triumphant debut at the Newport Folk Festival, and one of the the highlights was “Redesigning Women,” which Rolling Stone described as “a country anthem to women’s empowerment." It'll be one of the highlights of this week's "Sunday Supper," along with "Put a Woman in Charge," by Keb' Mo' (with Rosanne Cash) and "No Man's Land" by Bobtown - three songs to add to the Songs of Compassion and Commitment playlist.
We'll also have new music from Bruce Springsteen, Sharon Goldman, Jesse Terry & Alex Wong, and Pete Mancini, among others. The "Sunday Supper," daring to be musically as well as politically correct, from 5-6 p.m. at 90.7/wfuv.org or anytime in the WFUV Weekend Archives. (And if Alexa's hanging around your house, ask her to play WFUV and request the "Sunday Supper.")
