Mostly Singles: More Balm for the Soul (Audio)

Feb 23, 2021
More Balm for the Soul: the WGXC 10th Anniversary Pledge Drive edition – asking you to become a monthly sustaining supporter. More sweet old-timey music for these old times, with special attention on a cluster of artists including Mississippi John Hurt, Eddie Lang and Lonnie Johnson, the Delmore Brothers, Al Bowlly, Whispering Jack Smith, and Elizabeth Cotton. Be part of the family! A love letter from host Michael Wilde to you.

Claverack resident Michael Wilde presents Mostly Singles, selections from an extensive collection of 45 rpm vinyl — music from the 1950s, '60s, '70s, and early '80s, mixed with some 78 rpm selections from American popular song and field recordings from the Library of Congress and folklore archives. Broadcast live from the Hudson studio.
