This is the first half of my two hour show on KPFK-FM last Saturday, July 18. One hour seems to work better for podcasts, so from here on out I'll be dividing the KPFK broadcasts into two pods.

And as much as I love this aspect of my folk music life - I am fully intending to get back to the original concept of this blog some time in August.
