I am a 37 year old male and a girlfriend has turned me on to folk music and coffee houses this past year. I love it and I cant get enough and thank you for the streaming site. I listen all the time at work and home and I am just a taking baby folk steps but wow did I miss something my entire life. Thanks again for the music. Charlie
What a refreshing offering on the web! Kudos to Jim Blum and WKSU. I have often wished for folk music at other times than weekend evenings on WKSU. Now all I have to do is figure out how to get it to stream into my car! I hope many others will now have the opportunity to discover that part of their soul that only folk music can reach.
Apart from your pre-Christmas lead-up, which I found a bit tedious, I find this site essential listening. It keeps introducing me to a great deal of unknown music and new artists. I only wish New Zealand had a station approaching this.
Thanks, and best wishes for 2004.
Jim; I go way back and have been afar. Your stream flows into the river of life and regenerates us old souls and for that I thank you. Like the good ferryman Sidhartha, take us to the other side.
I have been a "Blummy" for a while from public radio days and you can't imagine how pleased and excited I was to find Folk Alley. It is so difficult to find good folk music without buying some dud CD's along the way. Listening to Folk Alley and utilizing the web page resources has solved that problem for me. In fact, Jim plays so much good music I have to restrain my self from buying too much.
Jim, you probably don`t remember me but we have met several times in the past, ( mostly in the 80`s at different festivals like, Pa. at Bever Valley, Old Tyme Mountain Music & Bluegrass Festival...that was 84, I believe. My wife &I were clog dancers & I also danced with a gentleman named Dennis Copley, we did a Duet
together & called ourselves 'Shave & a Haircut' because of our beards & some lack of hair.
My wife & I moved to Marietta, Oh. 21/2 years ago & we sure missed WKSU. I came across this Folk Ally site while reading the Canton Repository on-line.
It is one of the best things I have found on the web!
This streaming site is the by far the best streaming site I`ve ever been on. I don`t think you have played one song that I haven`t liked. Keep up the good
Thanks, Roger D. Patterson
Hello to Folk Alley! My first posting and I'm loving what you play. I'm writing to also let you know that I'm a performing and recording folk artist myself and though I am an unsigned artist presently, I have out a critically-acclaimed and available on the internet CD entitled "Home On The Hill" which you can check out at www.susieglaze.com and would appreciate finding out how to get it to you for airplay on Folk Alley. Many thanks for your help. Susie Glaze
