Your Montana Public Radio
The Folk Show presents a potpourri of folk music, as well as special thematic programs, hosted on alternating weeks by Montana Public Radio’s John Myers, and Beth Anne Austein. On the first Tuesday of each month, The Stan Howe Show, featuring old-timey western standards, airs as part of the program. From Appalachian music, bluegrass, and country blues to western music and the work of contemporary singer-songwriters - this weekly show is an eclectic exploration of folk music.
Tuesday night music themes range from humorous to erudite. The subject matter has spanned the quest for money to a multi-week series on Homer’s Odyssey. How does host John Myers come up with thematic music for the Night Flight? He has a massive personal music collection which he has painstakingly cataloged and cross-referenced on computer.
