Iconic American folk hero Johnny Appleseed would have fit right into today's world: he was a vegetarian and advocate for animal welfare. During our music today we'll hear a little homage to Johnny Appleseed by John O'Connor. Our music also includes Mendelssohn's Fantasy on "The Last Rose of Summer." Tune in at 9 am on 91.1 and 107.5 FM and our music stream.

Born in Madison, Wisconsin, Kate Remington joined WSHU in December of 2000, and she's been WSHU's Music Director since 2002.
