Acoustic Harmony is great folk music from the Green Mountains of Vermont. A radio program that airs every Saturday from 4:30 - 7:30 PM on WGDR, a free-format community radio station broadcasting throughout central Vermont from the campus of Goddard College. Hosted by Mark Michaelis and on the air since 1990, Acoustic Harmony features the music of contemporary folk artists, singer songwriters, Americana musicians and more, focusing on mostly independent artists. Acoustic music is featured, but anything with beautiful harmonies and melodies may show up, after all...what's life without a few surprises thrown in !!! Listen live in the local area at 91.1 FM or online at: www.wgdr.org
Mark is also now regularly co-hosting the wonderful long running folk show Crossroads, on WNCS/The Point out of Montpelier, VT, alternating Sunday mornings with my colleague, Todd Tyson. Tune in to Crossroads on Sunday mornings between 6 - 10 AM for great folk music.... listen locally at: 104.7, 93.7, 103.1 or 95.7 FM or stream online at: http://pointfm.com/
