by WFUV Staff
Vinicio Capossela

On Vin Scelsa's "Idiot's Delight"® tonight at 8, the new Hamell On Trial song, "Artist In America," serves as a jumping off point for a musical meditation on aspects of art and artists of various types. The show also includes a rare play of all 16-plus minutes of Bob Dylan's "Highlands" and Vin catches up to a couple recent albums by one of his favorite Italian artists, Vinicio Capossela (pictured).

Maggie Estep

On "Idiot's Delight"® tonight at 8, Vin Scelsa honors slam poet and novelist Maggie Estep, who passed away on February 12 at the far-too-young age of 50 after suffering a heart attack two days earlier. "I remember playing Maggie Estep back in the '90s," writes Vin. "There has been too much death all around us in the winter of 2014, but at least people such as Sid Caesar, Shirley Temple Black, Ralph Waite and Pete Seeger all lived long productive lives. When people age 50 and younger like Maggie Estep and Philip Seymour Hoffman die, it is so much harder to fathom."
