I like to believe that if Joe McGasko thinks about a genre of music, it immediately springs into existence with a healthy 7 inch DIY scene and everything. Like that time he imagined American all ages punk bands that have fake Australian accents for some reason, and then that totally happened.

i admit, it is a new one on me, but Wikipedia claims ""Hergest" should be pronounced to rhyme with 'hardest' with a hard "g" (as in "garden"). The local dialect pronunciation of the name is actually "Hargest"." and who am i to doubt the world's Free Encyclopaedia™

(as you interviewed martin phillipps of the chills last year, joe, i wanted to let you know that "pink frost" was playing in the Pubic Theater sound system, saturday morning. i heard it when i peed. of course when i say Pubic i mean Public.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15am annie:

joe, i can imagine the lists you must keep as you do your show on mondays; all the small catchings-up and little bits of house-keeping. thank you for all you do.
Avatar 11:16am Joe McG:

Oof, my copy of this album sounded much better at home. Surface Noise living up to its name today!

@Joe McG...cool! Do you need my listener number? I also want a smiley face, an anarchy symbol and a Christmas tree
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16am Ken From Hyde Park:

Just yesterday, I spotted a car with NY plates reading "STEELEYE" and I thought of this group.
Avatar 11:19am Sem:

Thought this gonna be the theme from Gilligan's Island in the first measure and a bit...

This is for herb.nyc, U2 actually opened for the Mekons in the late seventies. They did not bond. https://music.avclub.com/jon-langford-on-his-aversion-to-the-flaming-lips-she-1798240423

I think early Echo and the Bunnyman-the album with the rowboat in the cave-is really awesome!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24am BronwynB:

This set is going great with my writing of a novel inspired by Fairport Convention's version of Tam Lin. I've been listening to a lot of this British folk rock stuff lately...thanks for playing some I haven't heard before!
Avatar 11:24am herb.nyc:

@steve.cresskill thanks for link. can't read as it's Story Corner now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26am Summer and Michael:

Just tuning in a little while ago, Joe. That Steeleye Span song was amazing. Great show, as ever!
Avatar 11:28am Joe McG:

Thanks, S&M! You bet, BB.

Near Acadie-I-O?

Mr. Fox!

@Joe The Blackfly Song is a worthy story.
Avatar 11:37am northguineahills:

I once was djing at Tonic, and Greg Davis was setting up, and he was happy I played Mr. Fox.
Avatar 11:38am Brian in UK:

Joe here is one for later, if you know Martin Simpson he covers a lot of the territory these songs inhabit. This is a personal song though.
Avatar 11:40am Brian in UK:

He sings a wonderful version of Little Musgrave also known as Matty Groves.

Tried to read the AV Club interview with Jon Langford and it kept crashing but his Billy Joel moment was hilarious.

slowly pulling off the wifi now, have some sewing to do. ... thank joe, for the last hour of ballads and love songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46am MD:

these intervals are so old that sometime I believe they ring in our souls almost on a DNA level...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47am annie:

MD!!! exactly!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50am Carmichael:

Heya Joe and crew. This is a great set. Waiting for the Fairport ...
  11:50am melinda:

Nice to hear June Tabor
Avatar 11:51am Brian in UK:

I guess that of most musics of the last forty years, folk music has a fairly even gender split when it comes to singers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52am annie:

i get a thrill from hearing tunes written by men sung by women with no gender change in the lyric; and vice versa..
Avatar 11:53am themutante:

Ouch, aye the noo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53am Bobby Whirlwind:

Enjoying Story Corner Joe
Avatar 11:54am Brian in UK:

annie there was a version of Oh Yoko the other day on this station sung by a woman, you may have heard. It worked.
  11:54am Warwick joe:

What genre is this music considered?
Avatar 11:54am northguineahills:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55am Santos L. Halper:

Lovely Story Corner Joe (and entire show), thanks!
