John Santa interview on WFDU

John Santa - Bluegras Is My Second LanguageSince we first posted about Bluegrass Is My Second Language – A Year In The Life Of An Accidental Bluegrass Musician, the new book by John Santa, we’ve heard from readers who have been deeply touched by its story.

Well, John will be Friday’s (6/6) guest on Lonesome Pine RFD with Carol Beaugard on WFDU-FM (streamed online) for folks who would like to learn more about John and his mid-life conversion to the ways of the mandolin and bluegrass music.

John will join Carol at 10:00 a.m. on Friday to read some excerpts and discuss the book. They will also preview some music from his upcoming CD, The Blessing Of The Strings, which features songs from his book.

The show is broadcast from 9:00 a.m. to noon on 89.1 FM in the NYC area, and streamed live online at

John shared one thought about his upcoming interview…

“The irony of songs written from a book about North Carolina by North Carolina songwriters premiering in NEW YORK CITY (!!) is not lost on me.”
