Saturday  March 17, Folk Plus Playlist

(Current order to change after the show actually happens and I come home to edit)

Women and Humor. Yes I know it's St. Patrick's Day, but I want to balance last week's setlist offering ont he very serious topic of women and violence. This week we are going to laugh with women who are good at it.

Folk Plus airs Saturdays from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm on WJFF
90.5 Jeffersonville, NY. and 94.5 in Monticello. We are Hydro-powered Public Radio serving the Mid-Hudson Region, North East Pennsylvania, and the Upper Delaware Valley.

Format:   Artist - Track Title - Album - Contacts
Theme:    Jay Ansill - "The Two Horizons"  -  Origami - Flying Fish

 Christine Lavin - "One of things I do as I travel with my own concerts is that I bring tapes from a radio show
 by a woman named Angela Page who is on a little station called WJFF up in the Catskills. She has turned me on to so many songwriters that I just don't come across in my travels so I'm really grateful to her..."
Christine Lavin Guest Hosts City Folk WFUV

Well I am grateful to Christine for sending my her 4 disc compilation of her guest dj experience at WFUV, Fordham University. Besides the following cut from that set, Christine has made many collections of folk music from her Vineyard Tapes to Bottom Line Concerts. She had done more than any one performer in promoting the folk scene earning Sing Out Magazine's dub of her as "folk scene's greatest advocate."

." Contributors invited to flex their comic muscles include American politicos and writers Gloria Steinem and
                     Anna Quindlen, comedian Joan Rivers, and cartoonists Roz Chast and Lynda Barry. Certain
                     selections cause fluttering eyelids, but others win laughs or true guffaws. Some veer between
                     categories, such as Paula Poundstone's strictures for producing the Oscars: "... everyone will
                     wear usher uniforms and we'll put the money saved in gowns into low-income housing." No big
                     hair to compensate for the gowns, she adds sternly, and no squinting at teleprompters to read off
                     immortal lines like, "It's nice to be here." Breakups, predictable sex-role foibles, pregnancy,
                     PMS, and politics are well worked over. " - from
