BORN IN THE MOUNTAIN: Obscure Bluegrass, Old-Time, and Gospel On The Air


img_2646Join me, Ivy Sheppard, for  Born In The Mountain™ on the nation’s premiere bluegrass station, WAMU Bluegrass Country,  Wednesday morning from 10-Noon,  and on WBCM Radio Bristol  Tuesday and Thursday from Noon-2pm EST as I feature obscure records and field recordings from the foothills of the Blueridge and beyond. You can catch me on “An Old Revival Meeting”™ for an hour of good ol’ gospel you’re not likely to hear anywhere else on Sundays  at 9am on WCOM 103.5FM  and 10pm  on WEHC 90.7FM, or subscribe to the podcast.

Got something you want to hear or just want to get in touch?  Are there some recordings  I need to know about?  Have you got any old reels or tapes that would be good on my show? Shoot me an email!  I’m equipped to transfer 78s, 16″ transcription discs, 45s, 33s, cassettes, and reels.  This music needs to be preserved and archived.  Help me do it.  I welcome any contribution you can offer to my shows.  I also buy old records. Contact me.
