Join us for another exciting edition of the Whole Wide World tonight as Rita counts down her top 10 songs of 2012. It's no surprise that Rita's excellent taste in music is showcased through these eclectic choices as well as other songs from some of her favorite albums of the year. You can check out her top tunes as well as other WFUV DJs' favorite picks on our website, and don't forget to submit your own list to us as well.
Also on tonight's show is a special guest DJ set from restaurateur and wine maker Joe Bastianich. Known for his great New York City restaurants such as Eataly and Del Posto, Bastianich is also a singer-songwriter as well as a big fan of music. Listen in on his interview with Rita as they talk food, wine, music, and the very first "Highline Sessions", a WFUV benefit and singer-songwriter showcase hosted at the Del Posto restaurant. Stick around after the interview to hear a live broadcast of that show featuring Chris Stills, Teddy Thompson, Angela McClusky, and many other greats.
Tune in for the Whole Wide World with Rita Houston tonight and every Friday night from 7-10pm on 90.7 FM or online at wfuv.org. Miss a show? Be sure to explore past broadcasts in the WFUV Archives.
