This week we celebrate America’s pastime, which has provided inspiration for singers and songwriters since the 19th century. Also, Our good friend (and avid baseball fan) Dave Potts stops by again to talk about the craft of songwriting and what makes one particular Cheryl Wheeler song so good.
Take a journey through the best that singer-songwriters and acoustic musicians of all kinds have to offer through music and conversation. The Sundilla Radio Hour airs Thursday night from 7 to 8 p.m. on Troy Public Radio. The most recent four episodes can also be streamed any time from our Live365 station. The producer is Bailey Jones and the host is Kelly Walker. We welcome your comments at firstname.lastname@example.org.
