Love the 60th Anniversary history series

I've been enchanted by this podcast since its inception, but I've found the multi-part documentary of school's history exceptional. It's an engaging blend of archival music and interviews with people connected with the school from its earliest days to today. Host Mareve Lindo is smooth and professional.

In depth and highly entertaining!!

I love this podcast! Just listened to the new episode, “Come for to Sing” and was extremely impressed with both the style of storytelling, and the interviews taken from the Old Town Schools archives. What a treat to hear from Studs Terkel, Pete Seeger, Dawn Greening and many others who played an integral part in the creation of the Old Town School. 10/10 would recommend to anyone interested in folk music of any kind, the Chicago folk scene, and the Old Town School of of Folk Music. Enjoy!!
