Subject: Origins: Save The Old Songs on KDHX, St. Louis MO
From: DebC
Date: 14 Dec 09 - 12:28 PM

Paul Stamler has a radio show on KDHX in St. Louis called "No Time to Tarry". It's probably THE best folk music show around as he is one of the few DJ's in the USA that plays primarily old songs. His playlists are heavily annotated and a fascinating read. His shows are fantastic and if you are lover of traditional songs and music "No Time to Tarry" is for you.

I might add that Paul uses Cooper and Nelson's version of "No Time to Tarry" as the show's theme.

With Paul's permission, I am placing it here. I do hope that you will contcat the folks at the bottom of this post and let them know how important it is that old songs and music continue on KDHX. Thanks.

Hi folks:

For the last year or so I've been sporadically posting the playlists for the radio program I do, "No Time to Tarry Here". It's a program dedicated to traditional music, and I try to include many styles and varieties, from source performers to revival singers/players to the folks taking the music new places. I play ballads, string-band music, lots of 78s, cowboy singers, klezmerians, country blues and pre-blues, and the occasional polka; the show airs from 2-4 pm on Sunday afternoons, central time, on KDHX RADIO.

I'm writing to ask your help in keeping the program on the air. No, not money (that's only during pledge drives). The station's program schedule will be changing on the second Sunday in January, and the Powers That Be are planning to juggle the weekend programs, which comprise the "folk ghetto". I'm very concerned that "No Time to Tarry Here" is imperiled, that it might go away completely ("Nobody want to hear old, scratchy 78s of people with old, scratchy voices"), or that they might demand the program move to a time I can't do, and so effectively kill it.

So I'm asking, if you have listened to the program on the web or the air and enjoyed it, and/or simply believe there needs to be a place for the old songs and singers on the radio along with the reggae folks, singer-songwriters and indie-rockers, please write to the decision-makers at the station and tell them so. The people in question are:

Kate Estwing, Program Director
kestwing@kdhx.org

Nico Leone, Co-Executive Director
nico@kdhx.org

Bev Hacker, Co-Executive Director
bhacker@kdhx.org

I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Peace,
Paul

Not sure how the origins got in there. Maybe an elf can help. Thanks.

I saw Paul's plea on Ballad-L and contacted all three of the directors. It is a very unique show.

Today I received the following reply from the station:

Hi Dave,

Thank you for taking the time to write. We're always happy to receive feedback from listeners, whether about our programming in general or about specific shows.

No Time To Tarry is indeed a great folk show, and is a great resource for the folk music community both in St. Louis and around the country.

We do have a program change coming in January, but No Time To Tarry is in no danger of cancellation. If Paul does leave KDHX for some reason, it would be by his own choice. I'm a little confused as to why we're getting these emails - he hasn't said anything to us about leaving, and we certainly have no plans to cancel the show.

We're always grateful to hear how much people enjoy our programming, and with the help of supporters like you, we will continue to bring you great programming of all kinds, for years to come.

Sincerely,
Kate
