Ginger Radio Hour: Michael Hurley (Audio)

Apr 16, 2024

Musician and artist Michael Hurley is a legend. He calls the songs he plays "jazz-hyped blues and country and western music." And that music — his singing and playing — are truly singular. We have a conversation about music-making, songwriting, drawing, painting, Bo Diddley, fried peanut butter banana sandwiches, and wheelbarrows. He plays at Glen Falls House in Round Top on April 20th.

Host Justin Maiman, from Cairo, shares his latest inspirations on the "Ginger Radio Hour." The show features music, field recordings, performances, and interviews, primarily with people in and around the Catskill Mountains of New York live from WGXC's Acra studio. Excerpts of interviews on this show are often heard again later on the "WGXC Morning Show," the "WGXC Afternoon Show," or "All Together Now!"
