Welcome to the member-funded, hydro-powered, volunteer-run studios of WJFF.

Saturday June 5, 2010: Clearwater and
  Carole King & James Taylor

Folk Plus is a blend of contemporary and older singer songwriters with perhaps spoken word or Broadway tunes, or whatever may be relevant to the theme.  The station's website and stream are online at WWW.WJFFRADIO.ORG

This year's Clearwater festival will take place on Saturday and Sunday, June 19 and 20 at Croton Point Park in Croton-on-Hudson, NY.  Clearwater's Great Hudson River Revival will feature a number of superb storytellers and family-oriented entertainers as well as juried crafts, the Green Living Expo, the Working Waterfront with small boat exhibits and rides, environmental education displays and exhibits, and the Circle of Song where audience participation is the focus.

[From their site: ]
 In 1966, the Hudson River was rank with raw sewage, toxic chemicals and oil pollution; fish had disappeared over many miles of its length.
That same year Folk music legend and environmental activist Pete Seeger announced plans to “build a boat to save the river”.  Seeger believed a majestic replica of the sloops that sailed the Hudson in the 18th and 19th centuries would bring people to the river, where they could experience its beauty and be moved to preserve it.

So, Inspired by that vision, the 106-feet-long tall ship Clearwater was built and launched in 1969. The sloop was among the first vessels in the U.S. to conduct science-based environmental education aboard a sailing ship, virtually creating the template by which such programs are conducted around the world today.

Since the launch of the Clearwater, more than 430,000 young people and hundreds of thousands of adults have experienced their first real look at an estuary’s ecosystem—fish, invertebrates, water chemistry and ecological principals—aboard the sloop. Clearwater’s environmental education programs now serve more than 15,000 students annually.  Each summer, Clearwater hosts the Great Hudson River Revival, the country’s oldest music and environmental festival. That festival is in just two weeks. with the mess in the gulf and the balance of nature scewed, this would be a great time to show up in two weeks for the Huge Folk Music festival Clearwater 2010.
