FOLKDJ-L is a listserv mailing list for folk, bluegrass and roots-music DJs, as well as the artists whose music is played on the list members' programs, and anyone else who may have an interest.
The majority of the folks on the list do their programs at college, non-commercial and/or public radio stations, but not exclusively so.
Topics of discussion have included many discussions of the music played (including endless discussion of what "folk" and "roots" music really means), promotion, fundraising, survival in today's cutthroat radio markets, and perhaps best of all, many of the list members post the playlists of their programs. Many of us have been turned on to a lot of terrific music from reading one another's playlists.
The list is owned and moderated by Tina Hay, Folk Music Coordinator at WPSU, at Penn State University.
To join the list, send the command "SUBSCRIBE FOLKDJ-L" to the LISTSERV address LISTSERV@PSUVM.PSU.EDU.
You may leave the list at any time by sending a "SIGNOFF FOLKDJ-L" command to LISTSERV@PSUVM.PSU.EDU. Please note that this command must NOT be sent to the list address but to the LISTSERV address (LISTSERV@PSUVM.PSU.EDU).
Posts to the list are sent to FOLKDJ-L@PSUVM.PSU.EDU.
