Smithsonian Folkways Sound Sessions show

Smithsonian Folkways Sound SessionsJoin Now to Follow

Sound Sessions from Smithsonian Folkways is an audio journey into the rich, eclectic, and sometimes eccentric Smithsonian Folkways archive. Host Sam Litzinger and archivist Jeff Place comb the stacks for music and stories about this historic record label for monthly broadcasts that feature newly digitized audio, including rare outtakes, interviews, and never-before-heard recordings. Programs cover American folk icons, emerging artists who are continuing and transforming musical traditions around the world, and the sounds of our everyday lives, from the natural environment to the office desk. Interviews with Smithsonian Folkways staff and the artists bring a fresh, behind-the-scenes perspective to a record label that preserves a national musical treasure, documents "people’s music" from around the world, and connects people to their own and others’ heritage. New episodes air monthly on Sunday evenings at 6 p.m. on WAMU 88.5 in Washington, D.C., and often on WAMU’s Bluegrass Country. This project was made possible with the generous support of the Smithsonian Women's Committee.

Sounds to Grow On show

Sounds to Grow OnJoin Now to Follow

The CKUA Radio Network presents Smithsonian Folkways: Sounds to Grow On, a new 26-part series featuring the original recordings of the Folkways Collection, now a cornerstone of Smithsonian Folkways Records' vast catalogue. Hosted by Michael Asch, the only child of Folkways Records' founder Moses Asch, the weekly one-hour program debuted Sunday, January 18th, 2009. This series, researched by Robert Wiznura, is a co-production of The Smithsonian Women's Committee, Smithsonian Folkways Recordings, folkwaysAlive! at the University of Alberta, and the CKUA Radio Network. Smithsonian Folkways: Sounds to Grow On is about Moses "Moe" Asch, and, more specifically about Folkways Records, the company he founded in 1948, and its catalogue of staggering diversity and eclecticism. Upon Moe's death in 1986, the Folkways catalogue and related materials, comprising nearly 2,200 LP's, were turned over to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC. The label now operates as Smithsonian Folkways Records, which maintains the original catalogue, as well as produces and sells new recordings in the spirit of Folkways and Moe Asch. Smithsonian Folkways: Sounds to Grow On broadcasts throughout the CKUA radio network on the FM dial and live online stream Sundays from 3 PM to 4 PM Mountain Standard Time and in rebroadcast Mondays from 4 AM to 5 AM MST. In addition, episodes are available anywhere/anytime via the podcast. This is the second radio series from CKUA about Smithsonian Folkways, following up on the 24-part series The Folkways Collection that is also available as a podcast.
