A couple thoughts:
- Bridget St John and Johnny Cash got played two weeks in a row? Great minds really do think alike!
- Ross recently started looking all over archive.org, which hosts a lot of recordings so old that they're in the public domain and free to stream and download. Free old folk? Count us in! This week's Farmer Stultz track was one of these, and can be found here; and in turn any further music that can be downloaded for free in the same manner will be linked to in the coming weeks.
- Ross also played a track by Crywank. It's from his brand new album, which you can check out here!
- The fantastic Basia Bulat stopped in at Studio K, and Halley gave the interview while Ross filmed the video (and is editing it right now). She talked a bit about folk with us, and when the recordings are done, we'll be sure to play them for y'all!
That's all we can think of for now, so I suppose it's so long until next week!
