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
