And not a moment too soon! Rachel Ries, the Chicago singer-songwriter about whom I have been going on these last months–and whose work Terry admires as much as I do, Terryphiles–will be interviewed on XM Radio this morning by former “Morning Edition” host Bob Edwards. The details as dispatched to Rachel’s mailing list late last night:
I was delighted (terrified & tongue-tied) to be interviewed by Bob Edwards last month for his program, The Bob Edwards Show, on XM Public Radio. Our little chat is airing tomorrow morning, Wednesday the 17th, at 8 am ET (with encores at 7, 9, 10 am and 8 pm ET). If you don’t have XM Satellite Radio, never fear! You can listen in at www.xmradio.com. After the fact, it will also be available at audible.com.
Alas, I myself am XM-less and will have to catch it at audible.com, sigh.
However: for the benefit of all you Chicagoans out there, Ries performs at Uncommon Ground tonight and every remaining Wednesday in January from 8:00 to 10:00. Catch her before her sweet and salty “prairie swing/city folk” (a perfect description, presumably hers, that I blatantly stole from the Uncommon Ground web site) sweeps the nation! Today Bob Edwards, tomorrow the world.
