Folk Roots/Folk Branches: The radio show returns

I hosted the Folk Roots/Folk Branches radio show on CKUT in Montreal for almost 14 years – from 1994 through 2007 when a new job brought me to Ottawa.

I’m pleased to announce that Folk Roots/Folk Branches is returning as one of the original programs produced for the new online folk roots radio service at Roots Music Canada. It’s a one hour, thematic program that will first air every Saturday and then repeat daily through the rest of the week.

The schedule is:

Saturday – 10 am
Sunday – 10 am
Monday – 4 pm
Tuesday – 4 pm
Wednesday – 12 noon
Thursday – 12 noon
Friday – 12 noon

Times are listed in the Eastern Time Zone. Adjust the schedule for wherever you might be.

Folk Roots/Folk Branches starts airing this coming Saturday, January 11. The theme for the first show is music from my choices for the top 13 folk rooted and folk branched albums of 2013.

Other original programs on the Roots Music Canada radio schedule are The Open Chord with Bill Garrett, The Andy Frank Show, and From Cover to Cover with Michael Wrycraft.

The schedule also includes rebroadcasts of Folk Music & Other Stuff with Sonny Ochs, Radio Boogie with Steve Pritchard, Just Us Folk with Jan Vanderhorst, and The Midnight Special with Rich Warren.

It's a stellar lineup of folk and roots radio programs.
