The Flowing Waters of Lake Jefferson

Folk Plus airs Saturdays from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm on WJFF, Jeffersonville, NY

Yearly, Richard Gilman of KBCS Bellevue, WA posts the results of his pooling of posted playlists on the folk dj list. " I have developed an automatic system which tallies most of the playlists posted to FOLKDJ-L into a top list posted monthly. Not all airplays wind up being counted, but a large enough sample is counted to get a good sense of what is popular."

When I got to the station, I could not find several of these (listed at the end) which I had expected. (Another reason Im so glad I get lots of doubles and keep them in my music room where I prepare my shows) Much of the time was spent on announcing delays and icy condition news, so not as much time was available for songs. Thought Id get to about 6 or 7 more....Tim O'Brien, Zoe Speaks, Rise Band, Shindell, Rosalie....
