The Saturday Morning Folk Show is the longest continuously-running show on KDVS (fact check). DJs Bill Wagman and Robyne Fawx alternate hosting the weekly program, which showcases traditional and contemporary folk music, including Celtic, bluegrass and Americana. There are occasional live on-air performances as well.
The show has had the same approximate time slot (Saturday 9am-noon, 8am-noon, 9am-1pm) for most of its run, except for its first year and one quarter in 1980 or 1981 when KDVS management switched it to Sunday. It was switched back after overwhelmingly negative audience response.

2005-07-10 17:46:52 I, Bill Wagman, have been hosting / co-hosting the show for only about 6 years now. I previously hosted Mr. Wagman's Neighborhood on Wednesday morning. I took over when my predecessor Peter Schiffman left after about 10 years. WHen Peter started he alternated with Hiram Jackson and occasionally I would sub. Robyne Fawx did the show many years ago and when Hiram left Peter asked Robyne to come back which she did. Some of the DJs who hosted the show prior to that were Jim Viet (akd Wink Folker) and others whose names I don't remember —WjWagman
