A Classic eTown broadcast/podcast . . And Thoughts About Patience:

eTown friend Arlo Guthrie joins us for this encore airing (as one of the most popular eTown programs we’ve offered in the past several years, you’ve let us know you’d like another chance to catch it): At the time we originally aired this one, it had been over a dozen years since Arlo had last […]

Hey, first of all, our sincere best wishes to Ted Dwane of Mumford & Sons for a fast and solid recovery. Scary stuff, especially for one so young; all of us at eTown are so glad he’s doing well and out of danger. Mumford & Sons were on the show a few years back, and […]

Hi! Unfortunately I’m under the weather this week, so I will skip my usual musing and get right to this week’s program: Nick and I get to welcome some old friends: the Irish musical group Solas and brilliant songwriter, musician, conceptual artist, and poet Terry Allen. “Solas” is Gaelic for “light”; kind of perfect, really, when describing these guys […]

Been thinking lately about some big reasons to do certain things. Vague statement, I know, but stay with me and read on.

He’s a true gentleman, a loving father and husband, […]

The passing of Richie Havens

Dear friends, We are indeed saddened to hear of the passing of eTown friend Richie Havens. He was a sweet, present, kind-hearted, gracious and elegant man.
