OHR020: OHR Presents: "The Howlin' Brothers", 5/17/2021

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

Howlin__brothers_2021_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, Ark.  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, the unconventional folk-blues-rock-bluegrass trio “The Howlin’ Brothers” perform live at Ozark Folk Center State Park.  Also, interviews with “The Howlin’ Brothers.”

“The Howlin’ Brothers” are Ian Craft, Ben Plasse, and Jared Green.  The trio has a wide ranging appeal as evidenced by their popular performance at the Ozark Folk Center State Park.  Combining banjo, fiddle, guitar and upright bass, they perform traditional and original music with a sound familiar to fans of old time, roots, and Americana styles.  Of note is fiddler and banjo player Ian Craft, as he could be creating a new style of hybrid banjo playing.

Renowned folk musicians Aubrey Atwater & Elwood Donnelly profile influential folk music icons Jean Ritchie and the Ritchie Family, as well as explore the traditional Appalachian music and dance that the Ritchie Family helped to perpetuate into the modern American folk lexicon.  This episode focuses on memories of Bayless Ritchie, and features Aubrey & Elwood’s performance of the traditional song “I am a Foreign Lander.”

Mark Jones' “From the Vault” segment features a rare recording of Ozark originals Aubrey Richardson & Mike McGee performing the traditional folk song “Cluck Ole Hen,” from the Ozark Folk Center State Park archives.

ICKY: A Radio Musical

From The Children's Hour Inc. | Part of the The Children's Hour series | 58:00


Way back in the days before the end of The Big Sick, students everywhere were forced to stare at computer screens featuring live video feeds of their classmates. This was happening in bedrooms, living rooms, and kitchens across the country and the world. With the help (and the subconscious musings) of a dreamer named Halley, a team of super heroes discover that unity and togetherness can get them through any sicky situation.

What started as a pandemic project for The Children's Hour Kids Crew turned into an epic musical, documenting this extraordinary moment in history from a child's point of view. Not only is the music set to infectious beats, the sound effects and scoring captivate children and adults alike. We hope that ICKY can be used to engage kids of all ages in conversation about the social and emotional toll of the year of the pandemic.

The playbook was written by Sarin West, songs composed by Jules Latimer Warren, and lyrics penned by Hakim Bellamy. The musical was directed by Jonathan Dunski and Nicholas Main. Katie Stone was the executive producer.   

Starring 16 members of the Kids Crew, and 3 adults, the musical was conceived out of individual interviews with the cast members about their feelings around Covid-19.  Many months of workshops, rehearsals, rewrites, and more rehearsals, the musical was recorded in person using the children's family automobiles as sound booths. 

The musical has a full score composed by Robb Janov and performed by the members of the Squash Blossom Boys with special guest, Maya Malone. Jennifer Kraus was our sound designer, Andrés Martínez and Katie Stone provided sound engineering, with help from Brandon Kennedy. The poster art was by Noe Barnett.

Female Coppersmith

Guest: Sara Dahmen, Coppersmith at House Copper & Cookware,  Author of “Copper, Iron, and Clay: A Smith’s Journey.”

It’s not often you hear about a coppersmith — much less a female one. Turns out they’re a rare breed. Metal crafting is a dwindling art. Sara Dahmen, a coppersmith, is one of the last of her kind. Could she save metal crafts? 


Guest: Dr. Robert Whaples, Professor of Economics at Wake Forest University, Editor of The Independent Review

Pennies can be kind of a pain. They’re easy to lose and not exactly worth much. Plus, the US government actually loses money every year in printing pennies. Why don’t we just get rid of them? Dr. Robert Whaples, professor of economics at Wake Forest University, discusses what would happen if we were to ditch pennies.

Lighting Up A Better Future (hour/no bb or bed)

From With Good Reason | Part of the With Good Reason: Weekly Hour Long Episodes series | 52:00


In July of this year, Virginia will become the first Southern state to legalize marijuana, marking a major milestone in the failure of the War on Drugs. Katherine Ott Walter traces the racist roots of the War on Drugs and offers sensible alternatives to dealing with addiction in America. And: In the early 1970’s, Richard Bonnie became the Associate Director of the National Commission on Marijuana and Drug Abuse. While the Commission ultimately recommended the decriminalization of marijuana, President Nixon refused to endorse the recommendation. But that didn’t stop a handful of states from decriminalizing marijuana.

Later in the show: Today, the majority of Americans favor marijuana legalization. But back in the 1930’s the US government pumped out bogus propaganda that incited fear and linked marijuana to violence. Scott Maggard breaks down how the media shaped attitudes towards marijuana throughout American history. Plus: Marijuana has been used medicinally and recreationally for thousands of years. But Larry Keen says the science isn’t exactly clear about it’s long term effects on the body.
