Folk Alley Welcomes New DJ - Austin's Matt Reilly

May 4, 2009

FolkAlley.com expands its geographical presence with the addition of KUT's Matt Reilly from Austin, TX, to its team of music hosts. Since September 2003, Folk Alley has brought the best of traditional folk, Americana, singer/songwriter, bluegrass, Celtic, world and acoustic instrumental music styles to an international audience - listeners tremendously excited to finally find "their" music available 24 hours a day on the Internet.

Reilly, a Texas native, began his radio career in Austin, TX, working for KGSR, one of the country's most respected Triple A stations. He also spent time in front of the camera as a VJ on Austin Music Network, a local music video channel. In 2004, Reilly moved to Philadelphia to work for WXPN, a national vanguard in Triple A music. While there, he served as the station's Assistant Music Director and hosted the shows Jamnation, The New Music Show and The Indie Rock Hit Parade. Reilly and his wife, Jennifer, returned to Austin in July 2008 to be closer to family and enjoy the balmy Texas winters. He is currently a member of the music department at KUT, a recognized leader in eclectic music.

Matt joins fellow DJs Jim Blum, Elena See, Barb Heller and Gene Shay as part of an all-star team of public radio hosts. He will be heard in the stream daily from midnight to 5 a.m. ET (GMT -4), the slot recently vacated by Jeff St, Clair, WKSU's new morning host.

May 1, 2009

In honor of Pete Seeger's 90th birthday (May 3rd), Folk Alley has put together a 5 hour side stream of memorable Seeger classics covered by artists like Tom Paxton, Bruce Cockburn, Janis Ian, Bruce Springsteen, Natalie Merchant, Greg Brown, and, of course, the iconic troubadour himself.

Listen to the stream and leave Pete a birthday greeting here.

(Thanks to Jim Musselman at Appleseed Recordings and everyone at Smithsonian Folkways Recordings for supporting this stream!)


To add to the celebration, we'd like to share a special video of John Gorka performing "The Water is Wide," recorded in the Folk Alley studios.
