In hour one of Here & Now's Dec. 27, 2017 full broadcast, we get an update from Erie, Pennsylvania, which is still digging out after days of snow. Also, KCRW DJ Eric J. Lawrence joins us to look back at some of the overlooked musicians who died in 2017 and deserve another listen, including pop singer Peter Sarstedt, jazz player Grady Tate and Italian whistler and singer Alessandro Alessandroni. And as the first year of President Trump's term comes to an end, what's ahead for the detainees at Guantanamo Bay? We check in with NPR correspondent David Welna, who was at the base earlier this month. You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.
