Music You Can't Hear On The Radio (WPRB)
John Weingart's eclectic folk music show with Pete Seeger, Mississippi John Hurt, Steve Goodman and the Grateful Dean among its touchstones
Since 1974, John Weingart has hosted this weekly show - described by The New York Times as:
"some perfection aimed at people who like their folk music laced with rock-and-roll or march music or country or anything else that will create and maintain an appropriate theme."
Another reviewer wrote:
"Each show makes sets out of songs that are somehow related to one another, drawing connections where none existed before."
Thems often include politics, trains, trucks, animals, love, current events and sets where one song leads to the next but the 3rd, 4th or 5th may have travelled quite far from the 1st. Great musicians with good senses of humor and extremely limited commercial success tend to characterize much of each week's show.
The hosw's musical touchstones include Pete Seeger, Mississippi John Hurt, Charlie Poole, David Bromberg, the Grateful Dead, and Tom Lehrer.
