The Folk Sampler
- Sunday 5-6pm
The Folk Sampler is a program of folk, traditional, bluegrass and blues coming to you with host Mike Flynn from the foothills of the Ozarks. The Folk Sampler is about train whistles in the night and sunshine in the morning. It's about slow moving rivers and the sounds of wooden canoes. It's about horses in the barn, cows in the field, and the people who enjoy taking care of them. It’s about working in a factory or plowing in the field. The Folk Sampler is about real people, doing real things. It is about the stories we have to tell and the lives we live.
