Liner notes with Caroline Doctorow:
Songtrails is a radio show I present on WPKN in Bridgeport, Connecticut, which features Americana songwriters. The guests have been spectacular so far: Hugh Prestwood from the Nashville Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, Grammy Award-winning songwriter Julie Gold and folk legend Christine Lavin.
