Etown 7:00 am
Dave Alvin / Max Gomez

eTown welcomes back Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter Dave Alvin this week. He?s worn many hats over his long career as a songwriter, producer, session musician and even as an actor in television shows and movies on occasion. Rolling Stone magazine has called him ?an under recognized guitar hero,? and we couldn?t agree more. Also joining us: young, talented folk singer and songwriter Max Gomez. Great live music, compelling conversation and an inspiring E-Chievement Award story this week of two New Yorkers building and fixing bikes for their low-income neighbors
