The Midnight Special

Saturdays at 9:00 pm

What do Cheryl Wheeler, Pete Seeger, Ferron, Woody Guthrie, John Gorka, Ani Difranco, Jean Redpath; Robin and Linda Williams; and Mike Nichols and Elaine May have in common?

They’re among hundreds of traditional and contemporary folk performers and comedians who fill three hours of spontaneous entertainment. We call it The Midnight Special. Original and offbeat, The Midnight Special is WFMT’s weekly aberration of folk music and farce, show tunes and satire, odds and ends, madness and escape.

The Midnight Special airs Saturday nights from 9:00 pm until midnight on 98.7WFMT. One of the Frequently Asked Questions is, “If it’s The Midnight Special, why isn’t it on at midnight?”

That’s a good question. It never has been.
