Subject: Help! Need title for radio show
From: GUEST,Al
Date: 04 May 03 - 02:40 AM

I've put in for a 2 hour slot to broadcast on KFOK-LPFM in Georgetown, California. It will be mostly old-time and traditional, with a sprinkling of contemporary artists doing old style tunes. Also, some odd stuff, like Jose Feliciano singing the first stylized version of the national anthem at the world series back in the late sixties or so. Maybe some Joseph Spence. Anyway, the committee that decides who gets a spot is meeting Monday night, and they need a title for the show. I plan on alternating the time slot with one or two other people, so I can't just use my name for the title. Any ideas?

Thanks, Al

sounds like a similar predicament that i am in.
a 2 hour folk show on an new fm staion in oroville, ca.
alternating with several other programmers.
i brainstormed for a show name and found dozens.
I suggest using something that has a local appeal,
historical perhaps. humorous? what is the folk society
there called? Bruce and Cindy Hayden have an association
which produces concerts, etc. Q note productions, correct?
and american river folk society may be the name of the
association whcih produces concerts in the area, and was
influential in starting the station too. maybe something
that commemorates a river, mountain, mine or other natural
or historical place in your area? interesting that FOK is
in the radio station name...could you do something with
the name that can still be said over the radio??!!
as Thom O'Hair (the founder fo the strawberry music fest
radio station) always said Fight For Free Radio (FFFR)
perhaps Radio Free Georgetown or Radio Free something else
would fit? Is there anything about the location of the
station that might be of interest? street name? building name?
what is the elevation of your area?
good luck and let us know what you choose! do you know who
your alternating porgrammers are? they might like to have input.
my radio name is common "tater--what's yours?

Or you could pick a song or tune that you like and use the title or a line from it. Something like "Wildwood Flower", "Over the Waterfall", or "Hawks and Eagles"?

Aloha,
Mark

It all rather depends on just how tight your definition of folk is.
If broad then might I sugesst what I suggested to a programme controller 20 years ago "Horsemusic".He wasn't impressed but to this day I remain convinced that it was a goodun.

But i'm still not sure whether it was Louis or Leadbelly who asked for a definition of his music said "Well,I aint heard a horse sing"
Good luck with your programme

there is a band in northern california named hawks and eagles
it would be best not to use their name for your show.
Robbie Osmond on KPFA named his show after Kate wolf's song
Across the Great Divide--that was a good name!@!
is there a pass near you in the high sierras?
donner summit? well the donner party may not
be appetizing....dodge ridge?? a geographical
name from your area?

I'm kind of partial to The sixth and one half fret. I know it's a mouthful, but it refers to the sixth and one half fret on some dulcimers. I always thought I would name my folk music store that, if I ever got one. Or The Fifth String as it refers to the banjo. I also agree with something of local renown or the title of a song. I like Shenandoah for instance.

Why not find a fiddle tune or some such with an interesting name, and use that as both the title and the opening/closing signature tune?
Some possibilities:

Nonesuch
Possum Up a Gum Stump

Well, I submitted my application tonight. I told them the show would be named "Pride of the Mountains", after the title of a historical book about Georgetown. I also said, "or maybe Radio Free Georgetown".

Thank you one and all. If I get the program, and you have CD's of your music, I'd be pleased to play it.

I don't think we have that technology yet. And we only have 2 watts. There is talk about relocating the antenna and increasing the power. I'll bring up the net idea.

What about the American Dwarf? It's the other title for Smash the Windows.
I had the same problem naming my show in Santa Cruz CA, (British Isles and Irish Music) went thru dozens and final one emerged at the last minute-The Northern Bridge

Hey, Al, do you think I'll be able to pick up your show up the hill here in Applegate/Colfax? What's the frequency?
If you like to sing, we have a song circle at my house on the first Friday of the month.
I'm at the Heather Glen exit of Interstate 80.

KFOK broadcasts on 95.1 FM. The show will be titled "Pride of the Mountains" and will air Monday 10 - 11 a.m. I'm not sure when the first date will be, because we need to be trained first. I'll post when I know. BTW, I changed my posting name to Al, and reset the cookie. Let's see if this works. Al
