These days, when blue jeans, building exteriors, singing voices, signage (and so much more) are calculatedly "weathered" for a patina of "authenticity," it's refreshing to listen to some authentically authentic songs. Host David Garland presents haunting and surprising songs from some great blues and folk performers including Mississippi John Hurt, Dock Boggs, Skip James, and others. This show first aired Jan. 9, 2011.

Where could I find your complete playlist? There was a 6/8 soul tune from the 60s that was played at some point and I'd love to learn the artist and song name.

Blues and country stripped back down to the basics. All the glitter and stagecraft in the world can't come close to this experience!
