Great program this morning

We really enjoyed this mornings program.  Great music and starts the day well.  Thanks.

4th of July

Thanks for the Gina Forsyth tune. Hadn't heard it before; it's great!

Fri 9-17-10 show

Hi Kurt,


Heard some very nice classical sounding guitar this morning around 6am.  I think you said it was Joe Vega or Mabus?  Unsure.  It was a live performance from 1980? at a place called the 10 pound fiddle?

Hope that is enough information to find out who that was and what song they played. 



Hi, maybe you'd like our music...


I really like you show.  I wish there were a whole station devoted to this kind of music.  2 things you might be interested in:

First, my band, Mistral ( just finished a CD of Breton and French folk music, adding a couple English folk ballads.  I'd like to send you a demo if you're interested. 

I'm part of the Bridgetown Morris Men.  We perform traditional English Morris dancing.  After practice, we go out and do a weekly pub sing, currently located at the Green Dragon on 9th and Belmont, Wednesday at about 9:15pm.  The Brit Folk show was right up our alley!

-Ian Clemons

What was the last song played

What was the last song played Friday morning, February 5, 2010?  It was a song with a line repeating (I think), "I'll go to sea no more", sung by a very familiar voice.  It was such a beautiful arrangement, but when I do a search on those words, I get a song quite different from what I heard this a.m.  Thanks so much.  Carol

playlist question


     Who performed the song "Let's have Christmas in January" which you played around 6:58 AM on Friday 12/18? They Might be Giants? Anyway, my sentiments exactly. Thanks for the music.


Playlist question

Would love to know the name of the song played at approx 6:45 this morning. Woman was wrapping about bomb shelters and marijuana in tupperware(!). Thanks.

Loved today's program

Fundamental cracks in the foundations of our world and society are rarely brought up in conversation, let alone in the media -- and to hear problems of class divisions and despair talked about in such an unscripted and heartfelt way made today's Lark in the Morning broadcast a particular treat.

Keep up the good work!
