Michael Stock has been hosting “Folk & Acoustic Music” on WLRN, South Florida Public Radio for over 30 years.  Michael was  introduced to folk music back in high school when  a teacher  at Miami Beach High  played Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone”. Michael has since become fascinated with the roots of American music,  from the minstrel shows  after the Civil War to the protest music of the 1960s. “Folk & Acoustic Music”  also features all types of folk music, from bluegrass, blues, old-time,  gospel, to contemporary singer/songwriter Americana music .  The show also features  local and nationally touring musicians with  real-time  studio  performances
