Hi all. This here is a request to all of you for some things. First, I want to find a FOLK radio program that is willing to allow us to archive and broadcast their show just as we do the Crossroads show. It is unlikely that we can do it live, but most radio shows end up on CD from which we will encode and broadcast. If anyone knows any DJ's or such, please put them in touch with me.

Also, we are trying to launch Mudcat for Kids and need "stuff" for it. Stories, songs, how-to-make-an-instrument-out-of-a-pizza box type stuff, etc. Send me all your ideas and content.

As far as the Mudcat CD goes, we still do not have enough submissions to fill a CD. C'mon all you shy people, get off your duffs and get in the game.

I am always looking for bio's of Folk artists as well. And when you see a show or listen to a record, write a review or just a paragraph or something and send it in.

If you have an audio recording, pictures or video of a festival, we can encode it and include it as well. Send it all in. Include an address and we promise to send it all back.

We are always looking for content and stuff for the cat, so put folks in touch with me like museums or stuff do some things yourself. We want to publish the cat more like a monthly or quarterly magazine.

I guess that's all for now.

Max - Question regarding submissions for the CD.. I apologize if this question has been answered elsewhere and I didn't see it.

Can you use a standard audio recording from cassette? That's about all I would have acess to for recording.

Do you mean send it here? Ideas for children, that is? 'Cos, due to our national curriculum over here, we've had to do things like "Design and make a musical instrument" so I've few of that sort of thing. Such as making an African thumb piano out of a small flat box (pizza right strength, wrong size) using Mcdonalds' plastic stirrers for the notes. (Or wooden ice lolly (popsicle?) sticks) You need three strips of wood, eg small dowelling, but square section works, too, two to go under the stirrers as a bridge, and one over, to hold them down. This piece can be held down with a strong elastic band over the ends and under the box.

In case you're wondering, I'm from Toledo, Oregon,and we have been booking Folk Artists into the local Methodist Church. We have the Casey Neill Trio in May...Tom Russell in June...Dick Gaughan in July.....Anne Hills in August......September..open....Mary McCaslin in Oct... and David Mallett in Nov.... Also I have been in touch with the local FM radio station and they're going to let me produce a Traditional Folk Music show for a Sunday broadcast. I'm working on the first one and it will air at the beginning of the month. If this is what you're looking for, I'll be more than happy to dub one and send it you, whenever you wish...

Bruce "Utah" Phillips has a terrific radio program called Loafer's Glory. For every record he plays, he seems to have a great story to explain it. Trouble is, it's broadcast here on Sunday mornings, and I'm usually in church (would he see some irony in that?). I believe it's syndicated and broadcast on non-NPR public stations here and there. I think it originates from KPFA in Berkeley, California. Most likely, there's a connection with the radio station that broadcasts it in his home town, KVMR of Nevada City, California. Is there somebody who knows Bruce or who has a connection at KPFA who might be able to make arrangements? If nobody volunteers, I wouldn't mind trying - but I think a friend might have a better chance.
I understand there's a guy in Toronto who has a good folk radio program, and I'm wondering if he might step forward.....(grin)

Consider me stepped foreward. Now Max I know zilch about computers, CD roms etc. But...I've had a folk/blues/acoustic show for 10 years now and I'm very proud of how it's progressed. The station is CIUT (89.5) in Toronto and we reach into the States to the Buffalo/Rochester area. It's called "Acoustic Workshop", and were on every Monday from 9-10pm. Most of the time we've had live guests, sometimes local folk and sometimes those who are on tour. The fact that the station has moved us from 12 midnight, to 11pm and now to 9pm hopefully means they think it has a fairly broad appeal. OK, now tell me what to do. You can e-mail me at rfield@interlog.com

p.s. Joe Offer has agreed to hitchike from California to be the first guest...well he might.

Yo, Max:

I am a storyteller. You need kid-friendly tales? If you aren't too picky as to the range, i have about a year's worth in my head clamoring to get out. i do kid-tales on a regular basis in my gigs. The stories often come from the mid-west, time framed at about 1800-1900, and contain a lot of history if you want.

I would be more than happy to type up a mess, and you can decide if you want them or not. Or if you prefer, if I can get an snail-mail addy, I'll tape an hour or so of storytelling and you can cut 'em up and put them in as sound files.

However, using the primitive set-up I have here I can't do a whole lot more. I would need to send 'em as an email if I type em...

Regarding ways of making musical instruments, I think a mudcateer told me about a site devoted solely to that topic, the Musicians and Instrument Makers Forum. You have to sign up before you can contribute. I did, and they only ever sent me one email, and yes, the denizens did give me helpful suggestions about how to make drums cheaply.

Here's a blurb from the one email they sent me...

The Forum has been re-organized, with a new "Electronics" section and the splitting-off of "Acoustic and Electric Guitars and Bass Guitars" from "Other Stringed Instruments." The mimf.com website has a new look, the links page at http://www.mimf.com/link.htm has been reorganized and greatly expanded. And we're celebrating our first birthday with a collaborative online instrument-designing project!

Max, now you're geting into things I know about, I've been making cheap instruments, doing folk songs with kids etc for 34 years plus. Glads that sounds like a long time but I'm not bord with it, I love it more everyday. We have an arts festival for the kids every year and this year my workshop wil be making several instruments cheaply. I have several ideas out on my desk that I can send you now and can gather more as I clear the mess off and start new piles. My students would love to contribute also, they are full of ideas. Where do you want the stuff sent? I can really get excited about this. Love to help you, bet

Yes, everybody, yes. There is never too much. As always, the Mudcat is here to get the word out and be a one-stop shop and resource. We'll broadcast just about anything and everything. Anyone with legit ideas and contributions may call me at 610-873-7743 during Eastern Standard Time working hours or email me at contribute@mudcat.org. All great ideas.

As far as stories for kids and making instruments goes, get them in the best format you are willing to and send them via email or snail. I can also provide access to ftp, just contact me. We'll decide where and how everything fits once we get some stuff compiled. You can send them in Word Format, HTML, text, just about anything. more to come...

MMario: Yes, we can deal with tapes. If you want your stuff back, include an envelope.

Penny: Yes, I think, I meant send me stuff that I can put up on the Mudcat. If you want to that is. The thumb piano is exactly the kind of things we're looking for.

Frank of Teledo: Yes, exactly, please do dub it and send it to me.

Joe Offer: Go ahead and call him.

Rick: Do you record your shows on CD or tape? If you would like to rebroadcast your program on the Mudcat, just send me copies of all the shows you want included (no limit) and some promotional info so we can tell everyone about you and your show, and I'll put it up. Simple as that.

Right now, we only can deal with CD and Tape, unless someone wants to donate a DAT, real to real and a minidisc.

Mikal: Yes, love it. Send me text and documents and pictures and recordings, in the best format you are able. We can do the rest.

Everyone, when you provide me with anything, it is up to you how you want it presented. It's your stuff, so you make the call. I will make suggestions... Also include anything you want to to promote yourselves or anything else close to your heart. I will inlclude blurbs and pages about you.

bet: Glad to have you and your kids involved. I was asking my daughter and her music class to get involved too. You can send "stuff" to The Mudcat Cafe, 1541 N. Bailey Rd., Downingtown, PA 19335, or anything digital to contribute@mudcat.org.

This is exciting...

Max, here's a response from Richard Dunk, KVMR DJ, regarding Bruce "U. Utah" Phillips' show. Let me know if you are going to personally contact the program manager as Richard describes.

Subject: RE: Mudcat and KVMR


The straight story on Loafer's Glory is this...

Bruce "U. Utah" Phillips produces and distributes Loafer's Glory out of the KVMR-FM studios in Nevada City, California. The show is syndicated elsewhere on Community (not NPR or public)radio stations, including one or more of the Pacifica affiliates. The show does not originate at KPFA-FM in Berkeley and I would hope that they would make that plain when they re-broadcast what we send them.

If your buddy wants to score airchecks of Loafer's Glory, he should contact Steve Baker (the KVMR Program Director and the guy who produces the show for Bruce) at the address below. If they are available, Steve is the guy who would know.

Max, The papers that are stapled together have ideas that I have gathered from all over through out my many years of teaching. Some I modified or made up myself others came from "share" workshops, conversations with other music teachers, thus the multiple names. I did not send you anything that is unique to one source. The ideas are basically the same only individually modified. The drawings that are not handmade were found if several sources, all with identical pictures. Those that are hand drawn are mine. Hope this helps you decide what to do. bet

Hey, Max!! I think the kids forum should have songs that kids actually like!! Not like: James Taylor, Or any old stuff like Stevie Wonder or Buddy Holly, even though my mom,Lion, is mad for him, and defenetly not that "La Bam Ba" guy!! Kids now, in the 90's like music like: The Backstreet Boys, Smashing Pumpkins,Britney Spears,Alanis Morrisette,Chumbawumba,AQUA,and Salt'N'Pepa!! Also it should have a place where you can put photos,like a gallery for Mudkids,(I call 'em Mudkids 'cause I think it sounds good instead Mudcat's kids.) Also another suggestion,instead of calling it The Kid's Forum call it The Mudkids Cafe!!! You should also have a chat room,registration form,sign-up sheet,and comment book!! Graphics!!! To attract people of all ages you need GRAPHICS!!!!Go over my suggestions and write back A.S.A.P.:)
