On this week's Prairie Performances, Friday at 7 pm on WILL-FM 90.9: William Warfield, or Uncle Bill” as he was affectionately known to his students, would have been 98 on January 22.  He is no longer with us to share in a birthday salute, but we can remember and celebrate his spirit, warmth and love of music and verse.
