SRS: a lot of what you hear on NPR is syndicated stuff, and the individual station decides what to buy rather than having NPR-National do it for them. For example, one of our two NPR stations does "Thistle and Shamrock" and the other has its own folk music show. There is also a lot of good folk on NPR stations that stream and/or archive their programs. WPR (Wisconsin Public Radio) has a live folk program on Sunday afternoons, WFUV does theirs Saturday AM (and has 2 years of archived programs on line) and WKSU has a continuous folk stream.
Clinton, I'm glad to see that you are still in contention for the Crumudgeon Of The Year Award.
