Thursday CrossCurrents: 1.1.09

Host: Jonas Lamb

The Elements of Freeform, an Alphabetical approach to the New Year. This morning I'll explore artists from a wide range of genres, featuring artists fortunate to have surnames written in English characters which I can read and am therefore capable of presenting in an alphabetical manner (this is merely a librarian's attempt to organize the chaos that is free form).
