Join us this Saturday November 21st from 3 pm to 8 pm for KALW's Folk Festival of the Airwaves—it's five hours of continuous live music by some of the Bay Area's finest talent. 

 Hosted by JoAnn Mar, Kevin Vance, and Peter Thompson. 

Here's the line-up:

3:00 pm:  Euphonia returns to KALW.  The acoustic quartet features Sylvia Herold on lead vocals, Paul Kotapish on mandolin, Charlie Hancock on accordion, and Chuck Ervin on bass.  Their music spans Celtic, British Isles, old time, and American roots.

3:45 pm:  Josh Rosenthal, the owner of Tompkins Square Records, joins us to talk about his new memoir "The Record Store Of The Mind".  We'll listen to a few of Josh's unsung heroes who are featured in his book.

4:15 pm:  Diana Gameros, young Latin indie singer-songwriter originally from Mexico who performs songs of love, longing, and hope.

7:15 pmThompsonia!  Eric and Suzy Thompson have been full-time musicians for nearly forty years, but it’s only in recent years that their daughter Allegra has joined them in their musical endeavors. They’re about to release their first recording, a repertoire that encompasses blues, bluegrass and old time, Cajun, and sarcasm-laden originals.
