Earlier, I tuned in to the hit PBS series "Live from the Artists Den" featuring singer-songwriter JOSH RITTER's concert recorded at the Natural History Museum of LA County on October 26, 2007. The program will be aired again in New York's WLIW21 on Saturday, May 23 at 10 PM. The program featured extended footage including interview clips in its public television premiere.
Josh Ritter, son of my PhD thesis adviser and mentor in Washington State University (they reside in Idaho), recorded and released his debut album in 1999 after graduating from Oberlin College in Ohio.
