2017 was another great year for live interviews in the Radio Heartland studios. I saw some old friends and made some new ones too. I even got to shake hands with a few musical legends.

For this year-end special, I rounded up one song from each live performance in chronological order and mashed them together for a program of great, live music. You'll hear performances from Rodney Crowell, Rose Cousins, Kris Delmhorst, David Rawlings, Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams, the Blind Boys of Alabama and many, many more. Enjoy!
