|I am proud to be part of the 51st year of North America's longest running live folk concert broadcast, originating in Ithaca, N.Y. approximately 32 Sundays a year since l967. Admission is free. If you can't get to the show, you can listen live on WVBR, 93.5 FM, or on the web at WVBR.com. However, the only way to get the show in high def and 3-D is to be at the concert itself.
