Feedspot Founder Anuj Agarwal, offered encouragement to all of the producers and hosts who finished in the “Top 20” listing by saying, “I personally give you a high-five and want to thank you for your contribution to this world. This is the most comprehensive list of Top 20 Folk Music Podcasts on the internet and I’m honored to have you as part of it!”

Mountain Folk’s Dave Kline was very pleased to receive the news. “It’s quite a special honor to know that people from all over the world appreciate the hours and hours of love and devotion to alternative music, folk traditions and culture that we do our best to present each and every week. I’m very thankful to the Feedspot panel of judges, to our listeners, our sponsors and the talented musicians who share their recordings with us. Our past 39 years of production and sponsorship have allowed us to create the Mountain Folk Scholarship Fund, a 501c3 fund that benefits people who are interested in taking music lessons on folk instruments. The fund is administered by the Reading Musical Foundation and the cash resources from it come from a high-percentage of the weekly sponsorship dollars that support the Mountain Folk show, as well as from private donors who believe in the mission of the show and the fund.”
