On Sirius "50's on 5" you'll hear MTA, Worried Man, Tom Dooley and Green back Dollar once in a while. Much of their programming is done in themes, such as Doo Wop, Bubble Gum etc. In reality "Folk" stuff gets close to the amount of air play on that station as they did, back in the day. It wasn't all that much then or now....
I am asking this because of my ignorance of radio programming. Why don't oldies radio stations, including SiriusXM play folk music and in particular the Kingston Trio?
