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!
