Folk Music '50s & '60s Radio
http://www.live365.com/stations/loran2005b?play?site=pro
If you listen to Folk Music '50s & '60s Radio for very long, you'll soon realize that this station is not a typical classic folk station. Their focus is on the folk artists and singer-songwriters who were a part of the Folk Revival of that period. In fact, they play their whole body of work even when they experiment with other instruments or venture entirely off of the reservation into other genres. So, that means they're playing everything that Bob Dylan has ever recorded even when he started using <shudder> an electric guitar during the Newport Folk Festival in 1965. But they try to weight at least 75% of their songs played to the songs recorded during the actual 1950's & 1960's. They won't play a contemporary artist who is singing a Bob Dylan cover, no matter how well it is performed. They remain loyal fans of Willie Nelson, John Denver, Judy Collins, Carolyn Hester, Emmylou Harris, David Crosby, Glenn Yarbrough and hundreds of other great artists who joined or left various groups or who launched a solo career as they developed their art because they were caught up in the Great Folk Revival. Give them a listen!
