Classic Eno Festival Live Radio Show

Through an arrangement with the Festival for the Eno and the Southern Folklife Collection, I have been empowered to create a series of one-hour radio shows for all-volunteer non-commercial WHUP-LP radio in Hillsborough, NC. WHUP logo
Classic Eno Festival Live airs each Saturday at 11 AM Eastern on the 100 watt community station which live streams at At any time, the two most recent shows are available for listening at
I produce the show from live sets recorded in quite good quality at the Festival for the Eno in Durham, NC during the 1980s and early 1990s. Since July 1 we have broadcast episodes featuring the Seldom Scene, Red Clay Ramblers, George Higgs, Big Boy Henry, Lightnin’ Wells, Joe & Odell Thompson, the Badgett Sisters, and the Branchettes.

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  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 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.
