NEW PODCAST: Henry Glassie and his historic Ola Belle Reed Recordings

Today I just found out that my podcast about Henry Glassie and his historic Ola Belle Reed recordings is now live on the Archives of Traditional Music's website. Henry recently deposited his original Pennsylvania field recordings to the ATM and shortly thereafter I had an opportunity to sit down and talk with him about the collection. I had a blast editing and producing this podcast and I hope y'all enjoy hearing it. My sincere thanks to Henry Glassie-- it's really hard to imagine there being a better storyteller alive-- and to Alan Burdette for his patient guidance and wisdom throughout this project! And of course, my thanks to Ola Belle Reed for working with Henry and making these wonderful recordings!
