Today, 11/3 at 2:00 on WNYC, Folkways Records founder Moses Asch will be the
topic at hand.
Without Moe Asch, folk-music collections would look – and sound – very
different. The founder of Folkways Records (later Smithsonian Folkways)
captured the sounds of cultures throughout America and around the
world. But 60 years after he started the influential label in New York,
the search for traditional music and culture still continues. Richard
Carlin, author of "World of Sound: The Story of Smithsonian Folkways"
and New Yorker staff writer Burkhard Bilger join us to talk about how
Asch's work continues in the digital age.
