Anybody in the cathood listen to online radio? I was listening to a "pure folk" station and they played "Bridge Over Troubled Waters." Now I understand the tension between traditional and modern singer-songwriter folk, and I'm a hugely huge S&G fan: but power ballads just don't fit anybody's definition of "folk." Time to find a new place to turn.

So do any of y'all listen to online folk? Where do you tune?

Well, these are all through the itunes music stream, so I can't give websites, but I like Folk Alley, Green Mist Radio, Grassy Hill Radio, and, for 60's era folk-rock, Campfire Radio is a pretty good station.

If you like Old Time fiddle tunes and songs then try
Sugar In The Gourd. Not really a radio station but a continuous stream of good old tracks. Excellent stuff.

Thanks very much everybody -- but ESPECIALLY for the Hungarian station! I'm writing a book about a Hungarian vampire who was born in the 16th century, and nearly all of this music definitely sounds early renaissance at the youngest: virtually no polyphony except a drone; voices all solo or in unison; what little drums there are, are played on the beat and on every beat. Fascinating! Wonderful! Some,maybe most, of the melodies sound very Greek/Turkish, but some sound distinctly klezmer, and one sounded Cajun!
