Mike has an encyclopedic knowledge of folk music and it is a great pleasure to hear both the music he plays and the trivia that he shares about each week's song selections. This is an excellent primer for any budding folk enthusiast for he makes a point of including material from the many sub-genres which exist under the umbrella of folk music.
