Art-For-Art’s-Sake Theatre:
Steve Goodman “Talk Backwards”

Time once again for our usual midday Wednesday feature.

Steve Goodman (1948-1984) was an American folk music singer-songwriter from Chicago. His work entitled "City of New Orleans" was made popular by Arlo Guthrie and Willie Nelson. And although he won two Grammy Awards, he was little-known within the pop mainstream. Goodman died of leukemia at the age of 36. Although best known as a lyricist, his guitar prowess and gift for witticisms are both worthy of note, as seen here in this 1982 performance.
