Welcome to the Mary Cliff/Traditions web site. We now have two shows each Saturday: 3 - 6 pm on WAMU 88.5 HD Channel 2 in the Washington, DC area, on 105.5 FM (Reston, VA) and streaming worldwide on www.bluegrasscountry.org, and (completely different) 11 pm Saturday to 1 am Sunday on WAMU 88.5 in the greater Washington area, streaming worldwide on www.wamu.org.
The main purpose of this site is to allow Traditions listeners to access the Who's Where lists of folk performances in the WAMU listening area and nearby (plus occasional listings of major events elsewhere). Mary compiles these lists from many sources and announces some performances throughout the program. You can download the latest list in MS Word format and peruse it, print it or search for whatever interests you.
You'll also find Playlists of past programs. Playlists are posted shortly after each week's program (usually).
The News Items page is where Mary Cliff posts notes, updates, show previews, obituaries, announcements, etc, about/by/for/within/of-interest-to the greater Washington DC-area folk community. Notes are likely to appear on an unscheduled, even whimsical basis. Feel free to contact Mary with suggestions; she will take them into account, but gives no promises about what she'll actually post.
For questions about the program, contact Mary Cliff.
