Good Morning, Musicologists. This is your day if you’re into folk music. We’ve got a great plalist that runs just under three hours. We also have some live music from Dublin featuring Springsteen and his Seeger Sessions Band.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Folk Music From A-Z: Various Artists
We’ve already expanded this play list once on a modest scale, but we’ve got an even bigger updated and expansion planned over the nest few weeks. In the meantime, you can hear just under three hours of Bob Dylan, Tim Hardin, Richie Havens, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Cat Stevens, Pete Seeger, Judy Collins, Woody and Arlo Guthrie, Odetta, John Hartford, Tom Rush, Harry Chapin and more!
5:00 p.m. Bruce Springsteen & The Sessions Band: Live at the Point Theatre, Dublin, Ireland
Springsteen dropped the “Seeger” from the sessions band for this album performance; something we think is a shame. Ultimately this is Springsteens ‘take’ on Pete Seeger;s music, recorded November 17-19, 2006 in Dublin, Ireland.
The rest of the day is devoted to Open Stream, so tune us in. We’re sure you’ll like today’s music selection, and we’re completely free. No credit card of personal information is required. No advertising accepted. What are you waiting for?
Good Morning, Musicologists! It’s a bright sunny day here in the Boston area, in stark contrast to the past few days. It considerably improves the mood.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Wrecking Ball by Emmylou Harris NEW!
Wrecking Ball was Emmylou Harris’ eighteenth release, and it was also a career-redefining effort, her music taking on a sharper edge as she combined with Daniel Lanois (known for his work with U2). She covered songs by Neil Young (the title song), Daniel Lanois, Steve Earle, Bob Dylan, and Lucinda Williams (not a complete list). Many helped out with the instruments and vocals. It won the 1996 Grammy Award as The Best Contemporary Folk Recording.This is a spectacular album. Not to be missed, people.
3:00 p.m. The Sixties Rotation, Volume One: Various Artists

Kick back, put your feet up, and tune in some great music. It doesn’t cost you a penny, there’s no credit card or personal information reqired. Just your computer and a free tab.
