WYDT EXCLUSIVE: Sometimes a little nugget of knowledge just falls into your lap. Day after day you work and work to find the hottest, and most unique events that will titillate you, the reading public, but sometimes, almost never, karma smiles upon you, the heavens open and all your hard work pays off. Tonight is one of those nights. For one night only, one of the greatest musicians of all time will team up with one of the biggest names in music today, and it's happening right here in Connecticut. Stevie Wonder, Little Stevie himself, will take the stage right alongside Nutmegger John Mayer for a free show at one of the state's most prestigious venues for a performance. Unfortunately, because of contract restrictions and confidentiality agreements we can't reveal that venue on this website, but if you click this link, we'll tell you everything you need to know about the super-show.
