Your Ballad Man 1948–1949

1948 to 1949
Lomax's thematic program featuring "recorded folk songs from here, there and everywhere." John Szwed, in his "The Man Who Recorded the World," writes this about the show: "The best experience [Lomax] ever had in radio is how he described it. He'd walk in off the street with a pile of records and improvise his comments for a half hour. 'I have been able to talk about race relations, psychological problems and the oneness of the human family, as well as purely folkloristic matters.' Being a DJ was 'not nearly as bad as it sounds.'"
