From the Roots Radio for January 7


I just finished recording three hours of roots music radio for “From the Roots” to air, Saturday, January 7, 2012, on WMMT-FM 88.7, real people’s radio from the Appalshop (91 Madison Ave; Whitesburg, KY 41858. It streams online live at www.wmmtfm.org  as well as on InTune Radio and Public Radio phone apps. I host “From the Roots” – remotely – on the first Saturday of each month as the Lazy Farm Boy from 11 AM until 2 PM eastern. I maintain a playlist blog for the show at lazyfarmboy.blogspot.com. Look for the playlist there on Saturday.

This week’s show is a 2011 retrospective, remembering those lost in roots music during 2011 such as Hazel Dickens, Wade Mainer, and Paul David Smith, and highlighting some of my favorite 2011 releases and reissues.
