Folk Radio, Public Radio... good stuff

I'm sitting at work today, typesetting books and listening to Folk Alley, folk/acoustic music radio from Kent State University in Ohio. I like a few other online folk radio programs, but I think Folk Alley is my favorite. It has a mix of singer/songwriter, bluegrass, Celtic, and the occasional classic folk music. There are archived concerts and the like, too.

They have a feature called Open Mic — send them a bio and some songs in mp3 format, and they choose an act to feature for the month. Seems like the sort of thing a folkie would do if s/he wanted a bit of notice....

So it's a public radio source, and of course they'd gladly accept financial support. Which makes me think, what with all the public radio stations I listen to, how could I ever support them all? At home I listen to three reguarly, WDET, WRCJ, and WUOM/Michigan radio; I've also listened to WKAR Lansing (all classical) when its signal reaches me, and on trips to see Dave I'll tune in WGTE Toledo, WGUC Cincinnati, and the three in Louisville. Plus WKSU/Folk Alley. What, do I just take $100 and split it up amongst them? Ten bucks each, maybe? Hm....

So much for thinking; they're playing Dougie Maclean now. Ahhhh.
