Ron,
Better check out those on Tweed's "World Finest" List before you get too excited. The boy is somewhat weird and a bit strange. But, if you have listened to "Mudcat Wimmin" on the CD, you already know that!

World's Finest?? I better go back and edit out all my mistakes!! :)

Thanks to all of you for your enthusiastic response!   I just finished listening to the interview and Amos did a great job talking about the project. I just wish we had more time to play all the cuts! I guess in the weeks to come we will!

Ron

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.

Kat:

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?

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.

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!

Ron

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

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!
