Art and Soul Second Season Preview



Boise State Radio’s "Art and Soul" series sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Idaho Commission on the Arts just released their 2009/2010 lineup, and we must say, the artists, musicians and ... rawhide braiders scheduled this season are pretty top notch.
