A founder’s island

Stef@Brat1
Stef Steffen helped found Raven Radio and last fall stepped down from the Board of Directors after more than 30 years. From hosting Good Day and Jazz shows, to leading the efforts of two renovations, Stef’s energy and commitment to community radio are part of the heartbeat of this station.  Stef was the guest “castaway” on Friday, December 27th, bringing his list of ten songs that he would choose to have if stranded, perhaps forever on an island. He would also bring a well-frosted carrot cake. Here is a recording of the show which includes lots of early Raven Radio memories, Stef’s list of songs and a link to his dessert of choice. Enjoy!
1)  Ramblin’ Jack Elliot  / Blue Eyes Cryin’ in the Rain
2)  Red Clay Ramblers / Hard Times Come No More
 3)  Stevie Wonder / Gotta Have You
4)  Mose Allison / Live the Life I Love
5) Taj Mahal / Giant Step
6)  Patti Labelle / 1,2,3,4,5,6,7
7)  Rickie Lee Jones / Chuck e’s  in Love
8)  Milk Carton Kids / Michigan
9)  Tim Edey & Brendon Power / The Mountain Road / The Corkscrew
10)  Mumford and Sons / The Cave
