Theme: Songs of Woody Guthrie, Part 1 – Classic Songs


Woody Guthrie – whose active career as a folksinger, songwriter and author was relatively brief, from the late-1930s until the early-1950s – was the most important folk-rooted songwriter of the first half of the 20th century and an inspiration to contemporaries like Pete Seeger and to subsequent generations of folksingers and songwriters who have followed. When Bob Dylan first came to New York as a 20-year-old in 1961, it was in search of Woody Guthrie who had been hospitalized since 1956 for Huntington’s disease, the hereditary neurological disease that would eventually take his life in 1967 at age 55.

Stranger Songs with Mike Regenstreif – CKCU – Tuesday June 28, 2022: The Folkways Legacy of Sam Gesser


Stranger Songs with Mike Regenstreif finds connections and develops themes in various genres. The show is broadcast on CKCU in Ottawa on Tuesdays from 3:30 until 5 pm (Eastern time) and is also available 24/7 for on-demand streaming.

CKCU can be heard live at 93.1 FM in Ottawa and https://www.ckcufm.com/ on the web.

Theme: The Folkways Legacy of Sam Gesser.


In 1951, Samuel Gesser of Montreal – who died in 2008 at age 78 – became the Canadian distributor for Folkways Records. Early on, Sam pointed out to Moses Asch, the owner of Folkways, that there wasn’t any Canadian music in its catalog. “What are you going to do about that?” Asch asked him. Sam responded by finding Canadian folk music and folk music performers to record.

Between 1952 and 1964, Folkways released more than 100 LPs of Canadian folk music (and at least a couple of albums of Canadian poetry) produced or commissioned by Sam – all of which remain available through Smithsonian Folkways. The songs, tunes and poem on this show are drawn from just a few of those LPs.

I met Sam in the 1970s. By then, he was Montreal’s preeminent concert producer. Sam became a good friend and mentor and we’d get together over lunch a couple of times per year for decades. We also worked together on several projects over the years. I learned much from my many conversations with Sam. A tribute to Sam on the Smithsonian Folkways website is available at this link
