Spring 2016 Podcasting Techniques initiative

Texas Folklife has recently concluded our Spring 2016 Podcasting Techniques initiative. Podcasting Techniques is a series of workshops with teachers and students to facilitate community podcasts. In total, nearly 200 students worked to develop their own recordings through the program, completing 19 school podcasts throughout Austin ISD and Round Rock ISD. The initiative was developed as part of our award-winning radio documentary program, Stories from Deep in the Heart.

Happy Birthday, Bob Wills

It has been 110 years since the unsurpassed Bob Wills was born on March 6, 1905 in Kosse, Texas. Given the recent ways Texas Folklife has been showcasing its three decades of work documenting and celebrating Texas fiddling on its archival cd release and at the Festival of Texas Fiddling, it seemed appropriate to send along happy birthday wishes! It is hard to imagine someone who has had a more significant impact on both Texas music and on all American music than Bob Wills.
