The Flowing Waters of Lake Jefferson

Saturday October 25 2008: My Name Joe and nerfa



Folk Plus is hosted and planned by Angela Page and airs Saturdays from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm on WJFF, at 90.5 fm in Jeffersonville, N.Y. and 94.5 in Monticello N.Y. We are Hydro-Powered Public Radio, run mostly by volunteers and funded by members. We have two week archives and we stream online at WWW.WJFFRADIO.ORG 


THANKS SO MUCH to the station management fo accommodating  my health issues which allow me to continue to volunteer Saturday mornings and bring you the music that 'moves and sustains me. '

Everybody seems to be getting into the"My name and my trade" act after Charles Wertenbaker (Joe the plumber) rose to fame during the last presidential debates. There are oodles of songs in folk music with Joe's in them, or by Joes but I thought I would focus on just a few trades by Joes, and then move on to some of the musicians submitting cds for attending North East Folk Alliance in Kerhonkson next month.

[This show can be heard at wjffradio.org archive sight for the next two weeks]

Written for two girls with sanfilippo syndrome. Sanfilippo syndrome is a mucopolysaccharide disorder and is also known respectively as MPS III. It takes its name from Dr. Sylvester Sanfilippo who was one of the doctors in the United States who described the condition in 1963. MPS III is characterized by developmental delay, with ususally mild physical problems.  Tthere is a continuous process in the body of replacing used materials and breaking them down for disposal. Children with Sanfilippo syndrome are missing an enzyme which is essential in cutting up the used mucopolysaccharides called heparan sulfate. The incomplete broken down mucopolysaccharides remain stored in cells in the body causing progressive damage. Babies may show little sign of the disorder, but as more and more cells become damaged, symptoms start to appear.
