Giant thanks to IanZolitor for inviting me to be the first in-studio guest in 19 months last night in Philadelphia at WXPNFolk Show for an in depth discussion and 3 song set, live on air.
There is a rumor that Ian Zolitor of the WXPN Folk Show might be premiering a song of ours tonight, on said show, that we are releasing this Tuesday, the 20th day of July. Might be a thing....
Excellent selection tonight.
It’s been one year since the folk music world lost the late great Gene Shay, and Ian Zolitor is paying tribute to him on the WXPN Folk Show tonight. Read Ian’s tribute to Gene from a year ago and listen at 88.5 FM.
Organized by Jefferson Berry & the Urban Acoustic Coalition, the birthday bash for Gene Shay will be MC-ed by current WXPN Folk Show host Ian Zolitor and will feature stories and performances by artists who knew him well, like Tom Rush, Susan Werner, Ben Arnold and more.
“Trust” is an homage to a landscape and an anthem for our times. It reminds us that everything is alive, everyone is connected, and, despite the chaos of the outside world, a sense of refuge and purpose are always available if we stop, look, and listen. #americana #folkunlocked2021 #folk #rootsrock #guitar #newmusic #CaryMorin
👉 TONIGHT listen in for a chance to win 2 tickets to Cabin Fever Fest 2021 with Ian on the WXPN Folk Show , 8-10pm ET! Ian is going to feature performers, so listen in for your chance to win a ticket to #CFF, presented by Philadelphia Folksong Society and The Bluegrass Situation
“Walls are at the forefront of social and political discourse in our country, for a lot of the same reasons,” Jake Blount said on the WXPN Folk Show. “And it’s important to remember all the walls that have been built before and the fate that befell all of them.”
Happy birthday, Bob Dylan. Tonight at 8 p.m. ET, on the WXPN Folk Show. wx.pn/listen
The late Gene Shay was a hero and mentor to many around the world, but in particular to two of our hosts here at XPN. Yesterday, David Dye offered up a moving tribute to Shay on Dave's World, while Ian Zolitor took two hours on the WXPN Folk Show to highlight an array of songs from many of Gene’s favorite artists, from the early days to present day. Listen back to both programs at The Key.
EDIT 10:30 a.m.: Though the Folksong Society shared this morning, and confirmed with us, that Gene Shay had passed away, members of Shay's family have since reached out to say he is actually in hospice care, and has not passed. We will post updates as we receive them. We are devastated to report that Gene Shay - who hosted the WXPN Folk Show for 20 years and MC'd the Philadelphia Folk Festival for over 50 years - *is in hospice care. Gene was a wise and witty voice on the airwaves, a passionate lover of music and live performance, and we were privileged to know him and work with him.
Please tell Gene Shay he’s in my prayers for a speedy recovery
