Mostly Singles: Old and New (Zealand) (Audio)

Jun 28, 2022

In this broadcast, vintage 78s and classic New Zealand, a beautiful mishmash with roots that go deep. Blind Blake and Charlie Spand, David Kilgour, Carter Family, Joe Venuti’s Rhythm Boys, Sleepy John Estes, Look Blue Go Purple, Big Bill Broonzy, Fuzzies ... and even one brand-new. Resounding treasure.

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 songs and field recordings from the Library of Congress and folklore archives. Broadcast live from the WGXC Hudson studio.
