OHR108: OHR Presents: The Seldom Scene, 8/2/2021

From Ozark Highlands Radio | Part of the Ozark Highlands Radio series | 58:59

Seldom_scene_prx_small Ozark Highlands Radio is a weekly radio program that features live music and interviews recorded at Ozark Folk Center State Park’s beautiful 1,000-seat auditorium in Mountain View, Arkansas.  In addition to the music, our “Feature Host” segments take listeners through the Ozark hills with historians, authors, and personalities who explore the people, stories, and history of the Ozark region.

This week, legendary Grammy nominated Bethesda, Maryland progressive bluegrass super-group The Seldom Scene recorded live at the Ozark Folk Center State Park in Mountain View, Arkansas.  Also, interviews with this enduring and enigmatic group of bluegrass pioneers.

“The Seldom Scene is an American bluegrass band formed in 1971 in Bethesda, Maryland. The Scene has been instrumental in starting the progressive bluegrass movement as their shows include bluegrass versions of country music, rock, and even pop. What does it take for a bluegrass band to remain popular for more than four decades? For The Seldom Scene, it's taken not only talented musicians, a signature sound, and a solid repertoire, but also a sheer sense of fun.”

For almost fifty years, The Seldom Scene has been a staple of the American bluegrass landscape.  Their innovative approach to this traditional genre has brought bluegrass music to an ever widening audience.  While paying homage to the genre with traditional instrumentation & harmony singing, The Seldom Scene cleverly apply a fresh coat of bluegrass bent to seemingly any kind of song they choose.  Along with traditional bluegrass songs, rock, country, pop, and even classical music are reimagined into fresh masterpieces.

Although the lineup of The Seldom Scene has changed slightly over the decades, the sound and spirit of the group has endured.  Today, they are Dudley Connell on guitar, Lou Reid manning mandolin & guitar, Ron Stewart taking on banjo & fiddle, Fred Travers on dobro, and Ronnie Simpkins holding up the bottom end on bass.

In this week’s “From the Vault” segment, musician, educator, and country music legacy Mark Jones offers a 1983 archival recording of Ozark original Bob Atchison performing the traditional fiddle tune “Bull at the Wagon,” from the Ozark Folk Center State Park archives.

Writer, musician, and traditional dancer Aubrey Atwater presents “Ballads That End Well,” proving that folk ballads don’t always end with a grizzly horrifying death.

071819_top_of_mind_social_assetspodcast_240x240_small How Fences Rewrote Nature

Fences really are everywhere. As common as fences are, scientists know very little about their ecological effects. Alex McInturff–a post-doctoral researcher in environmental studies at UC Santa Barbara–has been looking at what we do and don’t know about the way fences affect ecosystems.

A Pill for the Health Industry

Since the pandemic, telemedicine has become a lot more common, even for visits with doctors right in the same town. Philip Phan, a professor of business and medicine at Johns Hopkins University, hopes that telehealth continues to bloom in the US even after the pandemic eases. 

The Volcano Chills Out

The eruption of a super-volcano underneath Yellowstone National Park would be catastrophic. But here’s some good news: a geological survey of Yellowstone shows that the next major eruption might be much further into the future than previously thought. Geochemist Thomas Knott at the University of Leicester was one of the lead researchers on this analysis.

071819_the_apple_seed_social_assetspodcast_240x240_small "How easily happiness begins by dicing onions.” So said the poet William Matthews. How easy is it to find happiness? Maybe just as simple as dicing onions, cleaning your room, taking a walk, or listening to a good story. We hope you find some happiness on today’s episode. Our first story is “Onions,” by Cindy Rivka Marshall, a story of a girl finding her way in the world with the help of a bag of onions. You’ll hear “Half Chick” by Tim Lowry, the story of a strange little chicken, and “An Old Rodeo Clown,” by Donna Ingham, a memory she loves to tell about her father. We’ll wrap it all up with “Colorin Colorado,” a story that a father uses to comfort his son, told by Pam Faro. It’s all coming up today on the Apple Seed!

Mask debates, a rush for a vaccine, and closed schools--not much has changed in the years since the 1890 and 1918 influenza epidemics. Tom Ewing takes us back to historical outbreaks to see what we can learn about today’s Covid-19 pandemic. And: There’s been a lot of coverage about the challenges of distributing the Covid-19 vaccine. How do we get it to distant areas? How do we use a whole vial before it expires? What about the special refrigerators needed to keep it cold enough? But these problems seem minor compared to the very first vaccine distribution in the early 1800s. Historian Allyson Poska shares the story of 29 orphan boys who crossed the Atlantic Ocean as live incubators for the smallpox vaccine and what lessons we can learn from this early campaign. 

Later in the show: Navigating social lives in the time of Covid can be awkward. How do you tell your friends, ”No, I won’t be joining you at that restaurant, but yes, we can take a walk in the park together” without having to explain or excuse? Carrie Dolan says we need to get better at communicating our personal risk levels during the pandemic or we won’t be able to stop it. Plus: Like most users, Jeanine Guidry clicked through Pinterest for gardening tips and decorating ideas. But she also found a surprising abundance of vaccine conspiracy theories. Guidry studied the social media platform’s role in the anti-vaccination movement, and now she’s looking at the spread of COVID-19 misinformation online.
