The Wagonload of Monkeysfeatures folk music old and new, acoustic and electric, traditional and contemporary, performed by singers, songwriters and dance bands from England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. Your host, Graham Rice, previously presented over 300 shows of The BritMix on WJFF. In that time, listeners would often request all-folk editions of The BritMix. Besides being an enthusiastic listener to (and student of) folk music for 40 years, Graham Rice was also once a folk singer himself, singing in folk clubs in Britain and Ireland! By hosting a folk music show, but airing music that will often be new to listeners, Graham hopes to inform, entertain, and to broaden musical horizons.
