WRUR 88.5 Different Radio

A Variety of Folk

Saturday 8-10am

On "A Variety Of Folk" we play a mixture of old and new recordings of folk music, principally from North America and the British Isles. A special emphasis is given to traditional or traditional sounding music accompanied by acoustic instruments.


For 24 years, the airwaves have heard a familiar voice bringing folk music to the Rochester area and since 2010, to Ithaca and the Finger Lakes on WITH. Ray Baumler has been there since the start, a program that highlighted the folk genre in all its various forms. Along with friend, Tom Bohan alternating each week as host, the program was a regular feature of the Rochester radio scene until this past weekend. After 24 years, the program came to an end. Ray along with Sue Tennenbaum, decided to end the program.
