Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper John Zaktansky recently spent some time on air to talk about the popular Songs of the Susquehanna project and the impending deadline for feedback on the 58 original, river-inspired songs up for consideration for the 2022 playlist.
You can check out the songs and provide feedback at this link -- those that take the time to do this by Feb. 28 will be put into a drawing for two tickets to the Susquehanna Greenway Partnership's April 9 Paddling Film Festival at the Campus Theatre in Lewisburg, along with a few other potential prizes.
You can also donate directly to the project by clicking here, as your donation will go to cover Songs of the Susquehanna costs and then will be divided among the musicians who are selected for the final playlist.
John Zaktansky talked about the Songs of the Susquehanna submissions with Mark Lawrence on WKOK's Sunrise show on Feb. 17, along with a number of other upcoming projects. You can hear the full interview here:
