Sedge presents a superb program from May 6, 1995, with clarion voices and timeless and timely insights - the first broadcast in 21 years. - Requested by a listener, Sarah, who wrote last week to explain why she wanted to hear it: "At a pinnacle of the song, [Cynthia Green] sang a sustained high note and Clemons nodded his head and silently applauded her, his eyebrows raised to the sky....Their perforrmance has played over and over in my mind ever since then. These were my most favorite WCL moments of all time." The rest of the show is pretty darn outstanding, too. From the Cowell Theatre
Clarence Clemons (The Big Sax Man from Bruce's "E" Street Band) and his Red Bank Rockers wtih Cynthia Green, vocal
