Sonja Hedlund will start your Saturday morning right with Ballads and Banjos. The program features a wide range of folk music, from singer-songwriter favorites such as Holly Near and John McCutcheon to folk styles gathered from Sonja's travels around the world. With her deep roots in rural life and community, Sonja offers up a genuine slice of Catskills life each Saturday morning with Ballads and Banjos.
Saturday morning on the farm with WJFF's Farm & Country. A broad cast of characters brings interviews, recipes, and more from local farmers, chefs and anyone who gets their hands dirty. Tune in to hear about all the things that make country living so great.
The show plays “indie music for indie kids,” including the best of music aimed at kids (like Dan Zanes, Elizabeth Mitchell, Lunch Money, Caspar Babypants, and They Might Be Giants) right along side kid-friendly tracks from the likes of The Ramones, Mike Doughty, Ella Fitzgerald, Brian Eno, Pizzicato Five, Andrew Bird, Fishbone, and more.
Throw in book reviews and exclusive in-studios from dozens of artists, including the likes of Jonathan Coulton, Asylum Street Spankers, Dan Zanes, Dog on Fleas, Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem, Elizabeth Mitchell, They Might Be Giants, and many more, and you’ve got an idea of what the show is about. One thing it’s not is your typical kids’ programming.
