Singer/Songwriter Judy Henske, a Chippewa Falls native, speaks with host Al Ross about her long career on “Spectrum West.” The show also features details about the upcoming Chippewa Valley book festival and a talk with artists Jo Ellen Burk and Terry Meyer.
Known as “Queen of the Beatniks,” Henske is recognized as an influential singer/songwriter of the late fifties and sixties musical scene. Ross and Henske visit long distance from her home in California to talk about transitioning from small-town girl to folk icon, as well as sample some of her music.
Margaret Leonard, a member of the Chippewa Valley steering committee and proprietor of Eau Claire’s Dotters Books, supplies details about the Chippewa Valley Book Festival happening October 24-29.
Burke and Meyer return to the show with a trio of topics this week. First, they will talk about the upcoming project “We are the Chippewa Valley” which is a special event of the Eau Claire Public Arts Council. Meyer will also highlight his latest artwork, a large outdoor mural. The two also talk with Ross about a proposal to establish a community mural artist fund.
