In this second of three special editions of "Sunday Supper" highlighting my 50 years as a professional broadcaster, I start with some folk icons in the studio at WFUV: Tom Rush, Judy Collins and Peter Yarrow together with Noel Paul Stookey.

Some of my favorite moments took place outside of the studio: Richard Thompson at the Museum of Television & Radio, Linda Ronstadt onstage at the Tilles Center, Emmylou Harris at Premiere Networks, Ray Davies in Worcester, MA, Tony Bennett at his publicist's, and a rare session at Atlantic Recording Studios where Nanci Griffith was joined by Guy Clark, Jerry Jeff Walker, Rodney Crowell and Eric Taylor.

Other highlights from WFUV’s studios include Graham Nash, Bobby McFerrin, the original Broadway cast of Spring Awakening with Duncan Sheik, Brother Sun, Jimmy Webb, and The Kennedys  teaming up with Red Molly.

But wait, as they say on the infomercials, there’s more! Just tune in for the last installment of my Golden Anniversary.
