The Dick Spottswood Show: Labor Day Special

Dick Spottswood has been a presence on WAMU's airwaves since 1967, when he hosted the station's first bluegrass show. For the past 25 years he's been the producer and host of The Dick Spottswood Show, which can currently be heard each week on WAMU's Bluegrass Country at HD channel 88.5-2. For this special program, listeners can join Dick for a special Labor Day edition of his obsolete music hour, featuring an eclectic mix of bluegrass, country, calypso, and rhythm and blues songs sung by and for working folks.
