Folk Oasis Episode June 17, 2009

Broadcast on 17-Jun-2009

8:00pm - 10:00pm

As the solstice approaches we tip our Folk Oasis touque towards our polka-playing friends who will no longer have their own category at the Grammys. Besides, June is Accordion Awareness Month! 8:30 interview tonight with Jim Byrnes, whose CD release show is June 19 at Richards on Richards. Turns out he's a polka and bratwurst fan too! Who knew??
party on,
