Wednesday September 5th: LOUDON WAINWRIGHT III

Happy Birthday Loudon! He’s 72!

Loudon Wainwright III grew up in the town of Bedford in wealthy Westchester County north of New York City, the son of Loudon S. Wainwright, Jr., a writer and editor at Life magazine and a direct descendant of colonial governor Peter Stuyvesant. Wainwright became a folk singer/songwriter in the late '60s, singing humorous and nakedly honest autobiographical songs.

Loudon releases a career retrospective album Years in the Making after 25 albums.
