I’m off enjoying myself at Folk Fest, and you should be too. I know how much the regulars just hate to have to choose between Folk Fest and TTBTGH, so I’ll make the choice easy for you. This week we’re going to take a trip back in the ttbtgh time machine and listen to an episode first broadcast way back on April 9, 2006.

At the time, I had this to say about the show:
A bit of a mixed bag as usual. Some new releases and plenty of excitement about the release of the lineup for the Winnipeg Folk Festival.

Then, a compilation of compilations, as I pulled a bunch of great compilation discs off the shelf and dug up some gems.
