NOTE:
This is an edited version (some info added to ID3 tags) of an mp3 also downloadable from archive.org -- it was originally "dug up" in 2007 at the WNYC archives by Eli Smith and re-broadcast on his and Henrietta Yurchenko's Down Home Radio Show.

An extended version (total length: 62:58) with detailed comments by Henrietta Yurchenko introducing/closing the original broadcast (highly recommended) is available/downloadable from the Down Home Radio Show website.

Interview with Alan Lomax about Leadbelly (Henrietta Yurchenko)
"From the Yurchenco Archives: On today’s show I air an interview Henrietta Yurchenco did with Alan Lomax about Leadbelly.  I’m not sure when this interview was conducted (there was no date on the tape), but I think it was done in the mid 1960’s for one of her broadcasts on WNYC.  Alan Lomax gives a really excellent talk about Leadbelly, about his music and about when he and his father John Lomax first encountered Leadbelly at the Angola State Penitentiary in Louisiana.  After the interview I play some of the very first field recordings that the Lomax’s made of Leadbelly when they met him that day in 1933, and when they returned to record him again in 1934.  Thanks go to Nathan Salsburg of the Alan Lomax Archive for supplying me with those recordings."
