Please allow me to tell you about a brand new folk music website with some very interesting historical content:

http://folkmusicworldwide.com/

lets you listen for free to 29 folk music radio interview and music programs from the heyday of the hootenanny, 1963 & 64.   (No fees, no ads, no sign-in requested.)

The guest artists discuss and play their music for 25 minutes each on a program that was broadcast around the world on commercial shortwave radio station Radio New York Worldwide. And there are special shows like interviews and music recorded live at Gerde's Folk City nightclub in Greenwich Village, NYC and music from Dr. Martin Luther King's historic Civil Rights March on Washington.

Here's an index to the shows:

1. Pete Seeger (in an era when many broadcasters wouldn't let him on)
2-3. Paul Stookey of Peter Paul & Mary
4-5. Eliezer Adoram
6. Paul Evans (1)
7. Israel Young
8. The Three D's (Mormon)
