You’re a music devotee and want to know more about an artist than who produced their new release (you know, the interview answer they’re giving every other media outlet in the country). WFPK in Louisville, KY is proud to present “The First Cut,” conversations with some of the most talented singer/songwriters recording today. WFPK’s award-winning music host, Laura Shine, asks guests like Michael Franti, Ani DiFranco, recent Grammy nominee Eric Burton (Black Pumas) and more about some firsts in their lives. Same set of questions, totally different answers. Artists recall favorite moments, firsts, and even share stories they’ve never told!
