The Dick Spottswood Show – May 28, 2006

Dick Spottswood called his WAMU radio show the "Obsolete Music Hour", playing classic bluegrass and country, string bands, honky tonk, western swing, blues, gospel, old world music, early jazz and other traditional styles that appeal to bluegrass devotees.

I recorded this show and others live off the air onto whatever was handy at the moment: cassette tapes, VHS tapes, zip hard drives, flash drives and solid state drives, etc.

I eventually digitized and added them to the Internet Archive for posterity.

Most shows are complete, but some aren't, FYI.
