From the Archives…

Hello everybody,

Well, I’ve been swamped by some other projects – working as ever on the Brooklyn Folk Festival and Washington Square Park Folk Festival, editing a book with the working title, “An Oral History of Folk Music in New York: 1940’s – 60’s,” producing a box set for Dust to Digital Records (more info on that later…), working with Jalopy Records and playing and recording a whole lot with my old time string band the Down Hill Strugglers, as well as teaching, on and on.  Between all that stuff Down Home Radio is on a bit of a hiatus, but look for it to come back strong this Fall!  Meanwhile, I thought I would post up links to some episodes from the archives.  This show has been going on for 8 years, so there’s a lot of great stuff back there!

    Thanks for the reminders of some great past shows. Do you have a publication date for the “Oral History?” Sure would like to read that! While I don’t need, yet another, banjo tutor I’d be interested to see your methodology!

    Keep up the great work.
