The Dick Spottswood Show
About The Dick Spottswood ShowSun. 12 a.m. and 3 p.m. Tues. 10p
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. Tuesday nights we give you an extra hour of the Dick Spottswood Show as part of Vintage Programming. Tune in at 10 p.m. for the “new” weekly show from Dick Spottswood, followed at midnight with a “bonus” hour of his show pulled from our archives.

Each week’s Dick Spottswood Show is normally available for streaming for two weeks after it first airs Sunday mornings from 12 to 2 a.m. But computer problems sometimes interfere, and a scheduled show must be re-loaded by hand. If a current show isn’t posted as scheduled, try again in a day or two, or listen for scheduled rebroadcasts Sundays at 3 p.m. and Tuesdays at 10 p.m.
