WXPN’s long-time Folk Show host Gene Shay continued his final run of shows behind the broadcaster’s mic on Sunday night, January 18th. In addition to live performances from Aaron Nathans and Michael Ronstadt as well as The Wannamaker Lewis Band, the show featured two interviews from Gene’s personal archives.

In the 8:00 hour, we’ll hear an interview and performance by Doc Watson and John Pilla, originally broadcast on WHAT in 1965. And in the 10:00 hour, we’ll hear a session with Ramblin Jack Elliott, originally aired on WIOQ in 1980.
