Join host Diane Hunt and be poked, comforted, inspired, and cheered on to ACT during this critical election season.

Between now and November 2nd, Folk Espresso with host Diane Hunt will feature songs that address the many issues that confront us and contort us as we VOTE to put this country back on a sane course.  Some songs go back to the pen of Woody Guthrie; others were written mere weeks ago.   You can count on folk singers to say it exactly right, so do be right here for these music specials.  It's an early show on the radio, so if you sleep in, remember, you can go to the List of Programs via the Audio tab above, scroll down to Folk Espresso, and listen to the show there once it uploads into the archives.  It'll be worth it.
