A collection of folk music, with motorbikes.

In this program you'll find that one song leads to another, set by set.  You can hear 25 different entertainers, including Rodney Crowell, Kate Wolf, James Taylor and Carly Simon, Bob Dylan and Joan Baez, and many others.  I hope you enjoy the music.

In my opinion the highlight of the show is the motorcycle music near the end, including a couple of well-known songs from Arlo Guthrie and Richard Thompson, plus a moment of poetry and a bit of motor sound from your host Will, touching on more than 50 years of personal motorbike history. 

The photos from the top:  Motorcycle Mama cover; Arlo Guthrie on his Indian; a 1952 Vincent; Will's 1954 Harley (owned 2yrs); Will's 1982 Honda (owned 20 yrs) and Will w/XT250 Yamaha. 

You can hear folk music on KBOO every Monday through Friday morning 5:30 to 7:00, followed by Democracy Now, and every Friday afternoon with Movin' On following news at noon.
