Yesterday at precisely 8:12 AM (EST), Folk Alley reached a big milestone and said “hello” to Ludwik Stawowy from Warszawa, Poland – our 50,000th registered listener! In a short 2 1/2 years, Folk Alley has taken great strides towards reaching our ultimate goal of becoming the destination on the internet for folk music fans who want 24/7 access to the music they love.
Meet Ludwik: I am from Poland. Am old enough to remember Bob Dylan’s folk years, but am more of a folk fan than a folk expert. Folk (and jazz, and Screamer Radio) helps me much to survive those long hours I am spending each day in front of my computer: I am supplementing my pension translating books from English into Polish. I think the main reason I like folk is that it perfectly fits my way of listening to music – mostly with my heart.
And — as a way to celebrate this exciting benchmark in Folk Alley’s growth, we’re holding a contest over the next few weeks where 4 lucky winners will be selected to program their own hour of Folk Alley. Just take the Folk Alley quiz by Feb. 17th to enter for your chance to win.
