AMERICAN UNIVERSITY Public Radio WAMU (88.5)/WASHINGTON, D.C. host DICK SPOTTSWOOD is celebrating 25 years on the air at WAMU, with his DICK SPOTTSWOOD SHOW. His show airs on WAMU’s “Bluegrass Country,” (BGC) and is known casually to fans as “Obsolete Music Hour.” The two-hour show highlights folk culture in the U.S. mainly from the 1920s through 1950s.
DICK SPOTTSWOOD is one of the foremost ethnomusicologists of Folk and Country music, and his commitment to preserving and maintaining the legacy of 'obsolete music' is truly extraordinary," said WAMU 88.5 and BGC GM CARYN MATHES.
