Take note: This is a special Summer Pledge Drive edition of “Anything Goes”. WORT news intern Bianca Martin and I will be asking to become WORT listener-sponsors if you’ve not financially supported WORT in the past and to continue your financial support if you’ve been a contributor in the past. This means a little less music and a little more talk. I hope you understand why this will be necessary this week and next. I’ll be featuring music of Madison musicians as well as soloists and ensembles who are coming to town or who have been here in the recent past.
