The lazy calm at the week's start. A few live performances included, but mainly music with an ear tilted toward string-driven things. (Visit homepage.)

The Chapin Sisters, a sweet folk trio with gorgeous three-part harmonies dropped by to tape a live set for WFMU.

Live performance and chat with Billy Bragg
Acclaimed Brit-rocker/ activist Billy Bragg joined Irene on WFMU for a most engaging hour, chatting and playing a few live tunes. Infamous for his rambling 'raps' during the show, tackling everything from the failings of New Labour, to love, incontinence and Morrissey, Billy had just released a massive retrospective box set on the Yep Roc label. Bragg dropped by WFMU for some post-Marathon fun.
