Sundays at 4pm

'Homespun' is a program that focuses on the "traditional" side of music, although that can stretch from very old 78 rpm reissues to the contemporary music of today. Host Tom Ball says there are only two kinds of music: good music and bad music, and he strives to focus on the good each week!

This week on "Homespun" Robert Barclay filled in for the regular host, Tom Ball, while Tom takes some time off. Robert played some western swing by Bob Wills & the Texas Playboys and Johnny Gimble, some honky tonk piano from Moon Mullican and some bluegrass by Bill Monroe, the Seldom Scene and the Country Gentlemen.
