About Woody's Children
The award-winning "Woody's Children" first aired in January 1969 on NY radio station WQXR, and since 1999 has aired on NY public radio station WFUV. Founded and hosted by Bob Sherman since its inception, it is the longest continuous and continuing folk music radio program in America, and certainly one of the most important and influential radio programs of any music genre. The name "Woody's Children" was coined by Pete Seeger, who was Bob Sherman's guest on the very first program, and one of his most frequent guests thereafter. Regular guests have also included Peter Paul and Mary, Odetta, Judy Collins, and Tom Paxton, among many others. Combining live performances and interviews with the best of recorded works, Woody's Children remains a poignant and vital link to America's living heritage.
