I am creating a new podcast! It's called No Root, No Fruit--a history of folk, roots, & americana music--one record at a time. Each episode will feature an iconic and influential record from the genre and an interview with someone who was moved by it. It doesn't launch until mid-May, but you can stay up to date by joining the No Root, No Fruit Facebook group. Click on the button under the logo!
