The Folk Show

Sundays 10pm-midnight; Saturdays 1-5pm, May-November (WPSU 3: Saturdays 1-5pm, Sundays 12-2pm)

The Folk Show, produced by WPSU at Penn State, brings you great music every weekend. You'll hear the occasional a cappella sea shanty or perhaps some Klezmer— and LOTS of celtic, bluegrass/ oldtime, singer-songwriters and acoustic instrumentals.
