Saturday Morning with Mike Regenstreif – CKCU – Saturday September 14, 2019

Saturday Morning is an eclectic roots-oriented program on CKCU in Ottawa heard live on Saturday mornings from 7 until 10 am (Eastern time) and then available for on-demand streaming. I am one of the four rotating hosts of Saturday Morning and base my programming on the Folk Roots/Folk Branches format I developed at CKUT in Montreal.

CKCU can be heard at 93.1 FM in Ottawa and on the web.

This episode of Saturday Morning can be streamed on-demand at …

Terri Hendrix- Way Over Yonder in the Minor Key

I was deeply saddened by the passing of Mitch Podolak on August 25. I first met Mitch in June 1974 and he told me he was starting a folk festival in Winnipeg. I didn't go to the first Winnipeg Folk Festival that summer but I was there many times through the 1970s and ‘80s. I shared friendship, many a meal, much music, and the occasional fierce argument with Mitch in many places over the years. His influence – like that of Estelle Klein – is felt every time I plan a radio show. Perhaps the most excited I ever saw Mitch at the Winnipeg Folk Festival was when Pete Seeger sang “L’Internationale.”
