Show Number: 1317
Air Dates: April 24, 2013 - April 30, 2013
E-Chievement Award: Bill Ayres
eTown welcomes back long-time guest and friend of the show, Martin Sexton. It’s been a couple of years since Martin was on the show, and listeners can look forward to hearing songs that span his career (including some creative covers), as well as an insightful interview. Also joining us this evening for their very first visit to eTown is the up-and-coming folk duo, The Milk Carton Kids. In just a short time, the duo has received a warm welcome from fans and critical acclaim usually reserved for their veteran counterparts. The band’s populist approach of giving away their music for free – combined with their talent and passion for live performances – was met with immediate success and interest from record labels, resulting in the band’s recent signing to Anti Records. They are also pretty hilarious – which you will certainly learn during their interview with eTown host Nick Forster. Lots of great music and an exciting E-Chievement Award story – this week in eTown!
