Today is Valentine’s Day, a day of chocolate, flowers, and love… or is it?
Today we want your take on this holiday. Is it a fun way to spend some time with your sweetheart, or a day manufactured by card and candy companies to boost first quarter earnings? WAMC's 'resident softie' Alan Chartock joins host Ray Graf.
About two years ago, singer-songwriter Josh Ritter’s heart was broken. He and his wife of a few years decided to separate and while writing and publishing a novel, keeping up a healthy touring schedule, and releasing an EP – Josh wrote new songs to help himself understand and heal.
The songs add up to his forthcoming album The Beast in its Tracks which is available for pre-order and will be released on March 5th. In a statement on his website announcing the record, Josh wrote: "All heartbreak is awful – my broken heart wasn’t unique. But writing these songs was helping me get through the night and I didn’t have the strength to care or question."
