Here is a recent comment on our show by Mark Weber who does a great Jazz show on KUNM in Albuquerque on Thursdays from 12:00 noon to 1:30. f

What better way to spend your Saturday morning than to
deja vu into that subconsciously familiar all-pervasive “folk”
music that underpins all the stories of the world that are worth
anything — everyone from Bartok to Charlie Parker dipped into
this deep well and here you have it served up on a silver airwave
by two ethnographers that have travel’d the backroads and backwaters
of America to truckload this real music: Ken & Jeanie as warm as
a bowl of posole.
—Mark Weber
KUNM Albuquerque Thursday Jazz

Well folks, that was a fun show this morning – lots of love songs in the 9 to 10 segment. We are working on getting more music put into our archives. It’s a bit of work but it works. Our live tunes in the second segment were, as usual, off the cuff and a blast. Just like the old radio days when bands played on radio shows. Some of them were quite early in the morning, like 5 AM. We did one of those in Louisiana in 1979. We were playing with Beausoleil at the time and Mike Doucet and Jeanie and I went on an early farm show and played some tunes for the folks getting up early in the morning take care of their chores and getting ready to go to work. The first tune we played this morning is from O’Neil’s collection of Irish music – Dermot My Treasure. The second live song was a rare recording of Freddie King – What About Love. The third song was written by Kyle, with us here at the station, and is called ‘Ready to Receive’. He sang it with feeling as his sweetheart was there shooting love at him.
Let us know how you like the show and we do take suggestions.
Here is a possibility to support the show and the station, we are putting together a list of things and equipment we need and maybe some folks out there could sponsor some of those. One great help would be an old four wheel drive vehicle to get us up to the tower.
And don’t forget, we are still trying to get more folks to help us do the show – we can teach you how set it up and be an on air personality. So, if you are interested in traditional music and you want to share that interest, give us a call and join the Roots and Branches traditional music co-0p.
