WRMRH_LogoIn 2012 WFMT’s Rich Warren, host of “The Midnight Special,” named Mark Dvorak “Chicago’s official troubadour,” a sobriquet previously given to Old Town School of Folk Music founder Win Stracke, and later to seminal folk singer and Dvorak mentor Fred Holstein.  Mark has been instrumental in sharing traditional folk and blues songs, along with his own original ballads all over the Midwest for almost 4 decades.  “Mark really functions as an ongoing emissary for the Old Town School and shares that vision and history wherever he goes,” remarks radio show host, George Schricker.   Besides singing four of his original songs on the show, Mark tells the story of his discovery of the school, his love of music, and his early history as a developing musician.   Also on the show is Faybrianne Simpson, a singer-songwriter from Goshen  who shares one of her beautiful ballads, plus, there’s even time for some laughs with the Shoot the MoonRadio Quiz Show.  So tune in for a little bit of Chicago history and some fine folk tunes from the Official Troubadour of the Windy City, Mark Dvorak.  The Wild Rose Moon Radio Hour will air this Saturday, February 2nd, at 12 p.m. on WTCA 1050 AM and 106.1 FM.  It will also air on WVPE 88.1 FM on Monday, February 4th, at 9 p.m.  If you miss the broadcast you can catch it later at:  http://www.wvpe.org/topic/wild-rose-moon-radio-hour.
