The Flowing Waters of Lake Jefferson

Saturday April 30, 2005

Folk Plus airs Saturdays from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm on WJFF, Jeffersonville, and streaming live at

I've been told by some that when they tune in Folk Plus while doing weekend chores,they are afraid to start to vacuum for fear of miising how the next song will handle the theme.  So I am not going to do a theme today, but that these are great tunes adn you should still hold off vacuuming til later. I asked listeners about themes. Some called in to say they keep sewing or quilting or projects for 11am on saturdays.

I was loaned a book this week called the Power of Intention. The theory was that any act of kindness raise serotonin levels higher than any prescription medicine. Not only that, the give and the reciever as well as any onlooker will benefit from this serotonin level rize.

You will hear about "Phosadh" prounounced "Foe sah" in this song, which  is marrying.
