On Wednesday, June 7, Virginia State Folklorist Jon Lohman joined Larry Minnick on his show “Left of Cool” to present some of the best recordings from the Virginia Folklife Program’s archive. From CD album productions to field recordings, from church concerts to Festival workshops, this program is three hours of great listening.

Note: the show begins with classical music from the previous show and about seven minutes of local news. Be patient for the Folklife portion of the show to begin.
