Last night on WXPN, long time Folk Show host Gene Shay began his final run behind the mic with a dip into his archives as well as a showcase of the present-day folk world. The show included a live session from long-running West Chester trio Mason Porter, as well as a revisit of sessions with Tom Rush from 1994 and 2001. In addition, Shay dug into his archives for a 1967 interview with Joni Mitchell, originally broadcast on WMMR.
A transcript of the session with Mitchell can be found on her website; it was recorded on March 19, 1967, and featured accompaniment from Gordon Lightfoot. You can listen to last night’s show in its entirety in the Soundcloud player below; the Tom Rush interviews can be heard in the first hour, the Mason Porter session in the second hour and the Joni Mitchell interview in the third hour.
