Just Folks is Delmarva Public Radio's weekly three hour folk music program. Every Saturday evening from 8 until 11:00 p.m., Just Folks--since December 21, 1991--presents the very best music, with new releases and old favorites. Hosted by John Kalb, the focus of the program is often on new and recent releases while frequently dipping into classic recordings from way back. John does his best to put together three hours of music he hopes will move you, entice you, amuse you and make you think every Saturday night.
