Old-time music galore

FOAOTMAD, the UK organisation promoting American old-time music and dance, announce on their news blog that nearly three hours of varied old-time music amd interviews can now be heard every week via the Old Time Music Cornwall website, which has embedded players for three shows from the USA: Bill Smedley's 'Old Time Music Hour', Dale Brubaker's 'The Old Time Zone', and Cameron DeWhitt's 'Get up in the Cool'. All shows will be updated weekly.

Colin Tipping, a FOAOTMAD member, also reports that the 1940 film 'Grand Ole Opry', directed by Frank McDonald, will be shown on Thurs. 4 Feb. at 12.35 GMT on TV Freeview Channel 81 'Talking Pictures TV'.
