Subject: Mudcat CD's on WFDU
From: Ron Olesko
Date: 13 Jan 03 - 10:36 AM

This coming Sunday, January 19, Amos Jessup will be my guest as we discuss and share samples from the new Mudcat Blue Plate Special CD samplers.

The interview will air during the 5pm Eastern Time hour of WFDU-FM's TRADITIONS, which can be heard in the NYC area over 89.1FM. You can also listen in via the internet through our website - www.wfdu.fm .

Unfortunately, one hour does not give us nearly enough time to sample all the treasures on this amazing 5 CD set.   What we have accomplished is a program that will alert our listeners to this project and hopefully bring a few new folks into the Mudcat and maybe sell a few CD's to help support this site. Amos eloquently discusses the history of the project and introduces a few selections from the CD's.

Even though we aren't able to squeeze everyone into this one hour "special", I can tell you that this CD series will be a treasured resource for my program. I have already begun including cuts into my playlist. I am astounded at the spirit and quality of the cuts. While some cuts may sound more "polished" than others, ALL the selections reflect a love for the music and sharing of the tradition. As I said to Amos, I really feel that this set could eventually be of historical importance, in a similar way that Harry Smith's anthology helped inspire a folk revival, I feel that the Mudcat CD's also reflect a continuance of the tradition and hopefully will inspire others to sing the songs.

Thanks to Amos and everyone for making these CD's possible, you have done an amazing job!

Love your show Ron. I listened in on tie internet.Even though the host was Bill Hahn, the show was great. It is nice to have a radio station that supports the "people" and not just polished commercial type music (if you get my drift.) We used to have that type of programing out here on the West coast but it seems to have vanished. Again thanks. I shall be listening. WW

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!

That's wonderful, Ron, thanks for letting us know!

I still think we need to add one more so we can get people like Dick Greenhaus and Susan DT, SDShad, and a few others included. Was Joe Offer on any of these five? I can't remember. Oh, also Escamillo and Skarpi, too!

I think they could be of great historical significance, too, not just in the field of music, but also the internet. Simply amazing that ya'll pulled it off.

I'm sorry to say that none of those you mention sent in any candidate material. I will make a point of tracking them down and squeezing them until music pops out if and when a Disk VI project is planned. I think if you review the threads during the submissions phase of the project you will see that this occurred despite more caterwauling and demanding and PRing and yip-yipping and calling for submissions than it takes to move a herd the length of the Chisholm Trail.:>)

But perhaps they were waiting for the precedent, eh?

In the case of some it seems they were up to their necks in other stuff and just couldn't get to it or chose not to for other reasons. Max is another one who is not on there. I know it wasn't due to any lack of getting after them. Also, you've already done so much, I had thought maybe someone else could take it on, esp. if it wasn't such a rush.

What a vision!! I love it!!

Here's what we do Ron -- in your copious spare time, you start working the MacArthur Foundation until we get the funding we need to really do this right. I am not about to sully such a vision by proposing that anything less than full-time dedicated focus would do it justice. I wouldn't dream of doing it the disservice! And, well, there are these college bills and mortgage statements that people keep sending me when I would much prefer to be able to focus all my attention on fulfilling the potential of your compelling strategy! So we have a few preliminary targets that need to be met if we are to ensure success!

Do let me know what the MacArthur people say!! I am ready to pack.

Good one Margaret!!!   :)

I only wish there were a foundation that supports folk music as it does other genres. Coca-Cola is giving Lincoln Center several million dollars to build a concert hall for jazz.

Where are the large patrons for folk music? Why is it always dependent on grass roots and individuals to support?   Hmmm. Maybe it isn't such a bad relationship after all!

Margaret,

Having head you sing, and having realized you have a sense of humor to match, I am oved to ask if you are doing anything important next lifetime!! :>)

Ron, if you wrote to the MacArthurs, you know, you could make an argument about the vital ingredient our grass roots music provides to the culture, enabling poeple to know their history in ways they never could otherwise, and thus become a wiser and better informed citizenry. I'll bet you a dollar George W never heard a folk song in his life. Probably elected by a buncha raplovers. Anyway, nothing ventured, nothing gained. I don't come cheap but it'd be less than Pavarotti for a year, I am sure! :>)

Well, I've never tried to listen to net radio broadcasts, unless you count listening to Prairie Home Companion's archives. But I'll sure try to tune in next Sunday and hear ol' Amos and the CD sample cuts. Having bought and listened to all ca. 110 songs, though, I'd hate to have the job of picking a few for broadcast. There are so many gems.

As for the next CD color, my vote is for Cumquat!

Ever since I was a young boy, I have tooted the horn for Badly Recorded Blues. Fo rmany a year, I have been the lone voice that spoke out to the multitudes of the wonders of Tweed's BRB. I have suffered indignity and dishonor at the hands of thos who had no musical taste, who laughed in my faceat my mention of Tweeds BRB.

My land was taken from me, my house, my car, my kids, my wife...all gone. My face was put up on billboards with large letters written across it-THIS MAN IS A NUT!. The Governor of Mississippi derided me in his annual State of the State message.

But I remained firm in my message, adamant in my stance. I did not falter, I did not fail. I continued to tout Tweed's BRB.

To this day, I have remained a lonely voice crying in the wilderness "Hear, oh people, Hear the Badly Recorded Blues of Tweed!"

Now, I read Tweed's bribery above. I am bereft, undone.

He did not mention that I, khandu, was also on Plum, nor did he include my name in the bribery.

Yet, I will continue my mission. I remain faithful and loyal. I will tell everyone about the low-down dirty dogfaced self-serving swine-snouted, back-stabbing, egg-sucking, riff-theiving weasel Tweed and his BADLY RECORDED BLUES.

Dere Mr.Olesko,
It aperes thet some feelings haz been trampled upon and I wuld like fer you to pleze add the King of Missississi to tha 24 hour airplya in cwestyun. He iz mos adept also at hiz singin an plyain an woud be a perdy good addition to yore show inspite of hiz inbred propensity to whine and kick his feet when he don get hiz way.

Of corse this fly in th udder balm woud not go unrewarded and we hav contacted them fellers from New Jersey who hav assured us they can convince Amos to do all 50 state flower CD's for you an not to worry about no grants or enny of that paperwork nonsense. They sed that after a cupple phone calls Amos wud be callin' beggin' fer the additional work. Also they sed it would be no problem to have sum of thar buddies stand around yore station's door in case sum folks try to storm the place. They are reel nice guys and seemed anshus to do you this "favor" fer some reason.

I reckon we'll need to change the telethon name to sumthin to reflek the new member or pore khenneth will raize holy hell about that too. What with him bein' royalty an all I assumed he had other meanz of promotin hizzelf but I see now that hiz deals must have fallen throuh after his cousin/uncle/brother-in-law/niece stepped down from bein' king of senators. I will leave the renaming of this gala event in Khandu's capable hans az he is good at that sort of thing and will have to abide wif whatever he chooses and it will spare us enny more of his danged hissy fits.

I am finding out how difficult theze creative people iz to deal wif and commend you on stayin with the biz this long.

The Coca Cola's of the world will give money to groups whose profile is just as high, but they tend to avoid anything labeled "folk".   I realize this is a very generic statement and there are probably exceptions, but whenever you see a "folk" festival the sponsor's tend to be a Ben & Jerry's or a Land's End. These are good companies, but they are not the Fortune 500. Also, the larger endowment grants "seem" to be given to fund jazz or dance programs.

Perhaps it is just better organization on the part of these other groups. I don't think I will ever see the day where GE sponsors the Newport Folk Festival. Then again, I doubt our audience would want to support a GE Folk Festival!

So - what about asking for a grant to preserve "Ethnic Heritage Music"?

Ron, I think the mega corporations are loate to fund "folk" music because we folkies have a reputation for being non-materialistic, even anti-materialistic (read "cheap").

Folk music's reputation for being "anti-establishment" doesn't endear folkies to "the establishment."

That said, NW Folklife Festival in Seattle manages to draw corporate sponsors for various sound stages (much to the chagrin of many performances and visitors who see the big corporate logo above the stage as a sellout).

Genie, Mmario & others,

I didn't mean to draw this conversation off on a tangent with my personal observation about funding.    As I jokingly said in my initial comment, I don't think we want to be "beholding" to large corps.    The corporations that you see sponsoring "folk" events tend to be the Ben & Jerry's, Land's End and other companies that supposedly have a moral approach to business.   These are not Fortune 500 companies.   I may be wrong, but I don't think Microsoft is sponsoring NW Folklife. Coca Cola is building a jazz concert hall for Lincoln Center mainly so that there logo will be scene by the faces that attend the event. Corporations and endowments tend to support the high profile projects.

Personally, I prefer the grassroots support. On a personal note, I have a responsibility to the listeners who donate $ to support my radio station.   I would rather be answerable to my listeners as opposed to Burger King.

Ron

I missed out too. I sure would like to be on the next one. I guess a prerequisite is to have a cd of your own made already?
I will try to listen in though, maybe. I have a set coming, but they ran out so I have been waiting patiently and maybe I will wait to hear the whole thing when it comes. What ever I do I can't wait to hear it!
Peace, Rustic

RR:

No such prerequisite. The candidates were sent in on home-made tapes, MiniDiscs, .mp3 files by e-mail, home-made CDs as well as commercial CDs. Only thing I drew the line at was singing to me over the phone, just on account of the sound quality, and wax cylinders on account I can't find that old Edison player I thought I had balanced up among the garage ceiling beams.    :>)

ALl joking aside, I hope you'll pass the word about Ron's show around the folkways of the world. The more exposure it gets, the more orders Dick gets. And we all want to flood Dick, don't we???!!! :>)
