Here are the folk music programs I've found in North America. I do a lot of searching the Internet for specific songs, and I often find the titles of those songs posted on radio station playlists. Lately I've been saving the URL whenever I run across a new station. Of course, if a show doesn't post its playlist, I'm not likely to run across it.

Their Sunday evening schedule includes 4 hours of folk beginning with 'The Folk Tradition' at 6:00pm (Mudcat time), 'The Folk Sampler' at 7:00pm, 'The Thistle and Shamrock' at 8:00pm and 'Celtic Connections' at 9:00pm. Main reason I'm never available for Paltalk on Early Sunday evening.

I listen to a number of folk radio programs over the Internet.

At the moment (Friday morning 10:30 EDT), I'm listening to a nice folk show from Maine with Chris Darling at www.wmpg.org.

My favorite folk show is Folk Roots/Folk Branches with Mike Regenstreif on Thursday mornings from 9-noon at www.ckutfolk.com.

I also really like the Midnight Special with Rich Warren. It's live on Saturday night but is archived for listening all week at www.midnightspecial.org.com.

I've been listening to WKSU in Kent, Ohio for quite a while, now. They have a weekend folk music program that is archived the next day on the net. Tends to be a little heavy on singer-songwriters, but a little less so, recently. And as a songwriter, I don't mind. Great to find out about all these other links! Here in the middle of the Pacific, live folk radio shows are just about nonexistent. At least my side of the Big Island FINALLY has an NPR station now.

Folks, I discovered this cool site called The Internet Folk Radio List Database, which purports to list all the radio stations in the world that play folk music! I found their search function kind of hard to use, however, and a lot of the stations were missing web addresses. So, I downloaded the North American portion of the list, edited it a bit, looked up as many missing URL's as I could find, and sorted it by Country, State or Province, City, and call letters, and I converted the URL's to links.

The list is still a bit messy for my taste. Some stations are listed more than once, because different programs have different web addresses. Some list all programs separately, some don't. Some syndicated programs are listed only under the station where they originate. I suspect some information is out of date. I wish I had more time to check and correct all this info, but I figured it would be better to put the list out now and let you all start using it.

Once again I have to plug my show - sorry for the non-commercial commercial! Along with my co-host Bill Hahn, I host TRADITIONS on WFDU-FM - www.wfdu.fm every Sunday from 3 to 6pm Eastern Time. Bill and I try to feature guests each week, and over the past 20 years we have been lucky to spend time with the "who-who" in the world of folk music. We also present special documentaries, concerts, holiday-theme programs, and tips on auto repair and basket weaving. (Okay, we have been a little slow in coverage for the last two.) We try to offer a full spectrum of folk music - our definition is very broad however we try to anchor the program in traditional music.

We have a lot of fun, and the pay is great! Plus no heavy lifting!

Seriously, please tune in via the internet at www.wfdu.fm (I will never be able figure out how to create a blue clicky thing) or if you are in the NYC area you can listen in at 89.1 FM.

And now back to your regular messages...

I would add my thanks to Jim for all of his work on that post. Another thing about The Internet Folk Radio List Database for anyone who has a recording that they would like to get played is that many of the DJs listed indicate what genres of folk music they play on their show, and whether or not they are open to playing submissions by indies. It is a great service in helping indies target their submissions to markets that are (potentially) open to their music.

John
type in a line break where you want to make the text move to a new line
On your keyboard use the key on the right of M, holding the shift key (as if to use upper case, then type br, then use the key to the left of the ?/key, again using the shift key.
There should be no spaces between the four characters you type.
Hope this makes sense to you!

Another one to add to your list. BBC Radio Kent, Friday's at 8.00pm with Simon Evans. Brilliant program, not sure if you can get it live on the web. Simon plays a good range of folk and also a lot of local talent.

Another internet source is "Spinner.com" They have different genres of music stations you can bookmark. It's great. I have it on whenever I'm in the office for an extended period. I'm pretty sure it's on 24 hrs.

WFMU in New Jersey - a show called the Secret Museum of the Air. it's ethnic folk music from all over the world - all traditional music from 78's and cylinders. They have a website where you can listen to past shows, each is an hour long. I don't know the web address, just go to a search engine and type in Secret Museum of the Air.

Thanks to Jim Dixon for posting the great list of links.

I must make a small correction though. There are two links listed for Folk Roots/Folk Branches. The first one is from the original server that hosted the site and has been defunct since last summer. The second one is correct.

BBC Radio Wales has a folk programme on Saturdays between 10.00pm and midnight. It's called "Celtic Heartbeat" presented by Frank Hennessey.

It is broadcast on AM and FM and you can also get it on digital.

The show features folk music from across the globe. So it is not restricted just to the Celts.

Radio Wales covers quite a large catchment area. So why not tune in?

This is Lil' VanBone really (Lorraine's mein mater and this is her cookie). There is an hereto unmentioned folk radio show (mine!) that plays from 8-10pm on sundays. David and Allan's "Folking you Up Since 1982"! We don't have tons of material, since this is a college radio show, and for some reason the college hasn't amassed much of a folk collection. Fortunately we have a very unique brand of humor to pull us through. Still, if you're in St. Mary's County, MD on sunday night, give it a listen!

There's a great internet radio station called Renradio at www.renradio.com that does a bunch of Celtic music and Renaissance Faire-themed music.

There's also LiveIreland.com that has something like 5 different stations of different kinds of Irish music from traditional to contemporary.

Wow what an incredible list! maybe it should make it to the status of perma thread.

For my money, I still swear by Hober.Com which I first read about on the Mudcat.

Most of the folk on the radio is on Public Radio or some college station or other. (Few in power/regulatory positions seem to care much about the consolidation in the broadcasting industry and consequential homogenation of content.) Options for me are faily limited due to the limits of broadcasting ranges and times. Does anyone know about cable or satellite radio? I have heard a few advertisements about both of late, and I was wondering. Of course, advertisements are not reliable sources of information, so I am asking the collected wisdom of The 'Cat. Thanks.

Try the Eagle's Whistle program on Sunday nignts (7pm GMT. This is a webcast from KAZU a Californian public radio station. There are four main presenters rotating weekly covering everything you could want to hear. Some of you may have met Malcom Rigby last year at various festivals. He will be back in the UK from early May to August and will be pleased to meet you especialy if you had a free CD he can blag for the show. Give it a try, just search for KAZU and follow the links.

BBC GMR (Greater Manchester Radio)has a programme that includes Irish music. I think it's called 'Welcome to the parlour' or 'Into the parlour'.

It used to be on Saturday 6.00, after the football results, but I think it might have been moved. Anyone know anything else?

as I was saying..

listening right now to KMUN of Astoria Oregon...really really nice shows...a very nice Scandinavian hour later this afternoon...I must have my Scandinavian hour music..there used to be, and still might be, one we caught in Longview, Washington...my mother hated the radio period and my father just hated Scandinavian music...I listened to it when my mother went to church..as the church organist actually...and it drove my father crazy but he let me listening to my polkas etc..he used to say it has one note and one beat and only a Norski (no offense to anyone of that persuasion) could like it..around 91 or 92 on the dial

anyway, has no one mentioned KBCS in Bellevue (near Seattle), Washington..very very nice programming, particularly Susan Madden. There is another one too I used to get near it on the dial.. (which I think is 91.3) KBCS

Also Portland has something with good folk shows early in the morning..KBOO I think.
