SEDGE welcomes presents voices of song and wisdom, hope, inspiration and laughter:

LADYSMITH BLACK MAMBAZO, the phenomenal South African acapella choir who sang with Paul Simon and Michael Jackson sing for us;

JAMES McBRIDE, author of The Color of Water and The Good Lord Bird, among other best-selling novels informed by his life, his music and his wit;

MAYA ANGELOU, whose thoughts on red beans and rice, motherhood, literature and spirituality and struggles will uplift you and make you laugh.  She's joined by her son, born when she was 17, also a poet, GUY JOHNSON.

The T-Sisters and Mike, back up JAMES McBRIDE for a spiritual with saxophone.

MIKE GREENSILL on piano.  We are real radio, real people, real ideas.
