Here in Hickory, NC during the late 50s and early 60s the KT got lots of air play on both pop and country stations. It seemed to die out with Reverend Mr. Black and Desert Pete never to return.
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?
