WNKU Presents Live @ 5

May 14, 2015

Join WNKU for our Live @ 5 Happy Hour with Sean Watkins of Nickel Creek fame on the brand new rooftop deck at Madison Live this Friday.  Sean will play a full show later that night, but you're invited to join us at 5 o'clock for this FREE concert preview and interview hosted by WNKU's Pam Temple.

In the midst of Middle East trouble, the Grateful Dead's members were unwitting ambassadors of American culture.

"Everybody had fun," Kreutzmann tells NPR's Steve Inskeep. "Yes, indeed."
