Folk Plus with Angela Page
Saturday March 3,
2012: Roads

Folk Plus has been hosted by Angela Page since 1993 and enters its 20th year. 
The show blends contemporary folk, plus whatever works to explore the weekly theme.  

You can hear this show for two weeks after its airing at the wjff archive site -
Folk Plus can be heard streaming Saturdays at 2pm at on hydro-powered public radio, and locally at 90.5 fm Jeffersonville, N.Y. and 94.5 Monticello N.Y. 
Folk Plus also streams at "the progressive voice of North East P.A." Saturdays at 3pm  and locally at 90.3fm Mt Cobb and 105.7 Scranton.

Thanks for taking this journey with me. Dave Van Ronk kicks off today's hour theme, is roads. The journey continues to Artisan, a group from coal country in England and followed by a song about coal town roads. Kate MacLeod does her version of the traditional False Knight on the Road. There are take-offs on the term with "Road Kill" Hat and "Road to Ruin"
Many have lives centered around the road as Martin Sexton sings in Freedom of the Road, and Lucy singing the Jack hardy song "Woman of the Road".  Next week is the first year anniversary of Jack's death and I will be repeating the hour special on Jack, [seen at] available as CD or for download for anyone interested. 
Ian Tamblyn's does his epic Tiger Lily Road about trying to return home, and we wrap up with John Denver and the Beatles.
