Playlist: The Moonshine Show - 3 May 2009

In response to listener demand, we played a bunch of old-time music to kick off today's show, and then we played a bunch of Del McCoury and talked to the man himself. He's in town today to play Pete Seeger's 90th Birthday Celebration at Madison Square Garden. On May 12th, McCoury music will release a five-CD box set called Celebrating 50 Years of Del McCoury.
