Folk Byways with Elrik Merlin

Today we present a pro­gramme of mod­ern folk music from the UK.

We’ll be hear­ing fair­ly recent releas­es, plus tracks from the last 20 years or so, with the occa­sion­al tra­di­tion­al num­ber thrown in along­side the likes of the Unthanks, Chum­bawam­ba, Four­told and oth­ers, many sug­gest­ed by my col­league on Design­ing Worlds, Saf­fia Wid­der­shins.

The Black Mass

Then tune in at 11am or 7pm Pacif­ic time (19:00 or 03:00 in the UK) for anoth­er chill­ing radio dra­ma from Erik Bauers­feld in the land­mark series pro­duced 50 years ago at KPFA in Berke­ley. Today it’s An Evening’s Enter­tain­ment by M R James. Next week at the same time we’ll be pre­sent­ing Diary of a Mad­man by Nico­lai Gogol.

Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin. You can lis­ten to the pro­gramme in-world now at, or sim­ply click here to start your play­er, if your brows­er is con­fig­ured to do so. Lis­ten­ers in the Unit­ed States are encour­aged to tune in using this link:
