Two excellent folk bands, Mipso and Lula Wiles, are this week's "Featured Artists" on Morning Maine. We will be giving away a copy of each artist's latest album each morning at 7:45 AM after hearing cuts from them. On Friday, October 28 we'll have a live interview with Joseph Terrell from Mipso at 8:30 AM.
