listenup112

Every Labor Day, Listen Up! salutes one group of workers in song. This year the honor goes to the…writers and authors. It is two hours of songs about writers, books, newspapers and all other things literary.

Follow the Listen Up! Blog and/or “like” the show on Facebook . Both serve as an addendum and a means to interact with the program.
