Folk and acoustic, traditional and contemporary, older and newer songs plus the latest releases. Bob loves harmony singing, string bands, new songs about old subjects and old songs about current matters, and singer-songwriters with a story to tell.
You’ll hear new releases by folks you’ve never heard of, old chestnuts from the greats, spiced with a touch of bluegrass, Celtic, Cajun, blues, and ethnic music. Songs about real people and their lives, labor and work songs, protest music, and comic relief are all included.
Bob brings his several lifetimes of experiences to the show- labor activist and metal worker, school teacher and salesman, cab driver and chef, father and grandfather, farmers’ market and food coop organizer, etc.
Bob produced close to 1000 musical events- folk, bluegrass, Celtic, festivals and more- before moving to the Cape more than 20 years ago. On the Cape, Bob booked the music for Eastham’s Windmill Weekend, chaired the WOMR Events Committee, and is the Music Director of the Harwich Cranberry Festival presenting their CranFest in the Courtyard summer concert series.
He’s hosted folk radio programs at WBRS 100.1 FM in Waltham MA (1988-2012), and the late lamented WADN Walden 1120 AM (1993-1995) in Concord MA.
Bob has been with WOMR since 2001, and fills the void left by the late Jack Cullen, long the host of Monday Folk music at WOMR.
