Folk Oasis Episode December 2, 2009

Broadcast on 02-Dec-2009

8:00pm - 10:00pm

This clear, cold night we warmed up with two versions of the same polka - one from Bob Dylan's new album. Which proves you can take the boy out of Minnesota, but...
Also sampled the new Amchitka Concert For Greenpeace CD set which features Phil Ochs, Joni Mitchell and James Taylor.
Whew, I think we've blown our Big Folk Star budget for this month already..

Happy full moon to all!
hugs, val
