Another busy edition of SUNDAY STREET. We featured two tracks from Caitlin Canty's impressive new album, GOLDEN HOUR, spoke on the phone with Sarah McQuaid, who is in the midst of an ambitious US tour, and were most pleasntly surprised by an in-studio visit from Iain Matthews who, with Jim Fogarty,was at Stony Brook to do an afternoon concert in our series at The University Cafe.
