OHR168: OHR Presents: More Songs out of Style, 10/17/2022

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

Vogts_sisters_2022_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, more songs out of style performed by various artists recorded live at Ozark Folk Center State Park.  Songs can transcend musical styles and those styles can also transcend their traditional roots.  “More Songs out of Style” continues our exploration of the movement of great songs across musical genres.  We’ll hear modern songs remade into traditional acoustic styles.

Artists featured on “More Songs out of Style” include up and coming bluegrass sensation Sylamore Special, experimental bluegrass ensemble The Barefoot Movement, soulful bluegrass legend The Dave Adkins Band, guitar virtuoso Muriel Anderson, amazing sibling duo The Vogts Sisters, mountain dulcimer world champion Jeff Hames, bluegrass genre jumpers The Seldom Scene, mountain dulcimer guru & musical mad scientist Bing Futch, masters of harmony The Secret Sisters, as well as old-time music mavens, comedians, and all-around hooligans The Hogslop String Band.

In this week’s “From the Vault” segment, musician, educator, and country music legacy Mark Jones offers an archival recording of Ozark original mountain dulcimer master Elliot Hancock performing the tune “Hole in the Stocking” from the Ozark Folk Center State Park archives.

In this week’s guest host segment, renowned traditional folk musician, writer, and step dancer Aubrey Atwater discusses how songs change as they are passed on, learned, and performed by new artists.  This episode traces the path of the traditional song “Red Rocking Chair” through some different performer’s styles.

Top of Mind - The Art of Activism

From BYUradio/KUMT/KBYU-FM | Part of the Top of Mind series | 52:50

Top_badge_small The word “activist” tends to scare off a lot of people. But working for change is more than protests and marches. In this episode we look to the example of Rosa Parks who did so much more than refuse to give up her seat on a segregated bus. And we consider why viral hashtags on social media rarely lead to big, lasting change. Plus, a new definition of activism that could motivate more of us to work on making the world a better place.

Later in the episode, we are thrilled to share an Apple Seed reader's theater recorded in our studio. "The Wind in the Willows" is a classic children's tale about friendship and helping others when times are tough. Listen along as our talented voice actors and live studio audience bring this story to life.

As Andy says in this story, sometimes tragic events like funerals can help us remember the people that we love, and how much they mean to us. Through this touching story, Andy shares with us the importance of memories with those that we love. We hope this story helps you to remember your loved ones, and to share those stories with the people around you.

In this story, we learn of the importance of friendship. Sometimes it can be hard to ask for help, even when you are in need of it. Join us as we tell the story of Rat and Mole as they strive to help a friend in need.
