Subject: RE: Mudcat CD's on WFDU
Thanks for listening Lloyd!    Bill and I alternate weeks on the air. I started the program back in 1980 and when my kids were born I needed some time off and luckily Bill was available.

We both feel that music doesn't have to be polished and commercial, in fact that literally goes against the definition that most people have of folk music. This is music that is meant to be sung by "folks" and I think both Bill and I try to remember that when we choose songs.

You are right, radio has changed on both coasts as well as those in between. There are fewer and fewer shows like ours, but we are still out there. I urge EVERYONE to support their local public, community and/or non-commercial stations.

Sorry for my soapbox!   Thanks again for listening, and I hope many of you will tune in this Sunday to hear Mudcat on the air!
