WUSB's Sunday Street Street Series Presents Tom Russel.

Sunday, April 29th at 5 P.M., in WUSB's Sunday Street Series at The Long Island Museum
(his only New York City area appearance)

Tom Russell, one of America’s great songwriters, returns to our area with a wealth of new songs from “Folk Hotel,” an album cited by many radio programmers as one of 2017’s best releases. Last year also saw Tom releasing “Play One More,” an album paying homage to the songs of Ian and Sylvia.

By themselves, these recordings would be most impressive yet they add to a rich collection close to thirty albums making Tom Russell one of our most important and prolific songwriters. Add to this the fact that he is a riveting, legendary performer in his shows.

The Boston Globe has called Tom "the most powerful voice on the contemporary folk circuit." David Letterman featured him many times on Late Night, and Tom's album releases have been regarded as one masterpiece after another. (www.tomrussell.com)

Advance sale is $35 at www.sundaystreet.org through Friday, April 27th, with any remaining tickets at the door for $40 (cash only at the door).

Former Fox News Host, Gretchen Carlson, Gets Fierce on Tom Needham’s The Sounds of Film

AIRS THURSDAY, APRIL 12, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM.

Gretchen Carlson and director Alison Chernick will be Tom Needham’s exclusive guests this Thursday at 6 P.M. on WUSB’s ‘The Sounds of Film.’

Former Fox News Host, Gretchen Carlson, will speaking to Tom about her book, ‘Be Fierce: Stop Harassment and Take Back Your Power.’ In the book, Gretchen shares her own brave story of fighting back against sexual harassment, and her very public battle for justice. Since then, Gretchen has had a new calling: to empower other women in their struggle against injustice. After Gretchen stood up and spoke out about her situation, women all over the world have joined the movement and began to take back their lives and dignity.

Also on the program is director Alison Chernick, the director of ‘Itzhak.’ The film shines a spotlight on the remarkable life of celebrated violinist, Itzhak Perlman. Chernick does a remarkable job of telling the story of a young polio survivor who came from Poland and Israel to America in order to be taken seriously as a music student when schools only saw his disability. The film also shares personal glimpses into the life of Itzhak and his devoted wife, Toby Perlman, as well as candid moments with Alan Alda and Billy Joel. ‘Itzhak’ will be screening at the Port Jefferson Documentary Festival on Monday, April 16th at 7:00 at Theater Three. Allison Chernick is the scheduled guest speaker. ‘Itzhak’ will have its exclusive U.S. broadcast premiere as part of the ‘American Masters’ series on PBS.
