Subject: Support (US) Public Radio, folk music

In many places in the US, the only radio station where you can hear folk music programs is the Public radio station. In Montana, we have the largest geographic area serviced by a Public radio station (most of Montana and northern Wyoming). It is called Yellowstone Public Radio.

Right now, the public radio stations are having their fund drives for listener support in order to pay the cost of being on the air.

I listen to this station online when I am traveling for work, as well as on the radio in the car and at home.

If you'd like to help your local station, now is the time. Feel free to post a link to your favorite public radio website in this thread.

Here is mine:

Many stations have locally produced folk programs. The one in Billings, Mt, is "Strings and Things", "Pickers and fiddlers--old and new--with Fred Buckley and Doug Ezell, who are pickers and fiddlers themselves".

When I was over in 2005 I spent a lot of time in the car listening to the Folk Stuff on Boston University radio !

Thistle & Shamrock has a big fan base in Montana.

Prairie Home Companion is popular, too, all the way back to the early days of the program.

Others folk programs on Yellowstone Public Radio are
The Midnight Special,
Blue Light Boogie (blues),
Folk Sampler,
The Hayride.

Another program favorite of mine is Classical Guitar Alive.

Alice, I listen to a lot of internet folk so, in addition to supporting my local public radio stations (2) and public TV, I also contribute to Folk Alley and WFUV.   I'd really like to support them all, but...maybe I'll win the lottery some day.

We are fortunate to have to great public radio stations here. www.wunc.org out of Chapel Hill, produces and broadcasts 3 shows of "Back Porch Music" on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, as well as Thistle and Shamrock and Praire Home Companion. Other that, it focuses on news and information and carries most of the really good news and information shows produced by NPR affiliates around the country.

www.wncu.org, in Durham,and affiliated with North Carolina Central University, a traditionally African-American school, focuses on jazz and blues, and has shows that cover the range of both genres.
