Just Folks

Oct 2, 2012

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.

Vinyl Classics

Oct 2, 2012

Remember listening to classical music on vinyl, long playing records? There was a depth and a sound unlike any other. Our newest series, Vinyl Classics, does just that. It returns you to the sound of classical music on vinyl. As host Pete Kosinski says, “It’s something so old it’s new”. Thanks to WSCL’s extensive vinyl, long playing record album collection, we will broadcast classical music as you once heard it, and will hear it again.

Our Fall Drive begins Friday, October 5th at 6am. The drive continues Monday, October 8th and runs through Friday, October 12th. “Now is the Time” to show your support for Delmarva Public Radio and the stations you’ve come to love and count on every day.
