    Early Banjo Recordings – Is it “Old-Time”?

    By Roland Sturm

    Vess OssmanMore Banjo!, a radio show hosted by Heather Rose on KCSB, covers any music with banjo content. It started in October and its 6-8am Thursdays schedule isn’t conducive to a wider audience at, but I was preparing my class then. The advantage of being up early was that I heard a range of music that I may not have encountered otherwise. “More Banjo!” is also archived on Mixcloud.

    FEATURE ARTICLE

    PHIL OCHS TURNS 80 YEARS OLD TODAY—DECEMBER 19, 2020

    By Ross Altman, PhD.

    Phil OchsI’m writing this on my birthday, which is just ten days before Phil Ochs’ birthday December 19, 2020 when--having been born in 1940--he would have turned 80 years old. The reason I mention it is that it’s the one day of the year my favorite author and poet Robert Graves took off from writing. I did not plan on writing today either, in recognition of Graves’ day off—but I’m no Robert Graves, and tomorrow is Human Rights Day—the 10th—and I may need to finish it then—to be able to get it done by FolkWorks’ deadline which is also the 10th. I don’t have time to waste.
