About The Dick Spottswood ShowSun. 12 a.m. & 1 p.m. ET, Tues. 10 p.m., Thurs. 5 a.m. ET
Music scholar and Washington radio personality Dick Spottswood highlights the many facets of folk culture in the United States on his two hour show. Reaching back to the 1890s and the beginnings of recorded sound, but concentrating on music from the 1920s through 1950s, each of Dick’s programs brings listeners a surprising collection of recordings – from cylinders through 78′s and LP’s.
06/18/2013 (rebroadcast from 06/16/2013) - Charlie Monroe songs raise the curtain on this week';s OM Hour, and there's an extended Jimmie Rodgers medley to bring it down again. In between we'll encounter Lefty Frizzell, Charlie's little brother Bill Monroe, Jimmy Arnold, Blind Boy Fuller, Jelly Roll Morton and Wade Mainer. If it's Obsolete it's timeless---that's our story and we're sticking to it.
