A 4-hour tribute to one of the great folk groups of all time. In 1959, Glenn Yarborough, Alex Hassilev, and Lou Gottlieb burst on to the folk music scene as the Limeliters. Their complex sound and sophisticated stage show made them an ovenight sensation. TIME magazine said that "If the button down scrubbed looking Kingston Trio are the undergraduates of big-time folk sing-ing, The Limeliters are the faculty." Over the ensuing decades, the Limeliters went through a variety of lineup changes, but they still go on today. Join host Nick Noble for a four hour journey through the career and musical outpourings of the Limeliters: from the suggestive nuances of "Vicky Dougan", "Le Jour de Luth" and "Have Some Madeira, M'Dear" through the double-Grammy nominated album for kids-- Through Children's Eyes-- and on into the 21st century, the Limeliters represent all that is best and most memorable from the folk revival period and its legacy. Tune in and enjoy!
