Folk Plus Playlist for Saturday January 4, 2003

New Year/Old Songs

Theme:   Jay Ansill- The Two Horizons  -  Origami - Flying Fish

I was asked recently by station managers when the anniversary of my show would be. Its not a simple answer for I first was involved with producing WJFF's "Chidren's Corner" weekly through 1992 and 1993. It followed Folk Plus every saturday.

Then, on March 13th 1993 a storm had left a foot of snow in Mississippi and was predicted to drop more than 3 feet in our area. Winds of 50-60 mph would cause blinding white outs and drifting. Wind chills were predicted around -70 degrees.
I called WJFF hoping that Folk Plus was going on the air, since I knew the dj had a long drive. Richard Levine had been there since 5 am and asked, "Can YOU get out of your driveway?" I could. I told him I usually taped shows in production and had little experience live. All I knew how to do live was talk and alternate cd 1 and 2 machines. That was it. RIchard said "Good enough!" and asked me to come in so that he could leave.

I went in with my own CDs which is still my practice, and covered until Folk Plus' host Dan Laibstain came in late. With two DJs we called it Folk Plus Plus. At that time Folk Plus was only an hour and a half.  By the end of that year I was hosting on alternating weeks with Dan who was happy to not make his hour and a half trip so often. Then sometime in early 1996, Dan left altogether and I took over doing Folk Plus every week. By the end of 1997 the show became two hours.
