About the Book
From the books and movies that inspired George Lucas to imagine the Star Wars universe, to early screenplay drafts that were never filmed, to short biographies of many people who made key contributions to the movies' success, Star Wars FAQ explores every aspect of the original Star Wars trilogy (Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi). Along the way, it unearths underreported stories and illuminating minutiae often skimmed over or completely ignored in other histories of the legendary film series. Highlights include details about the Star Wars Holiday Special debacle, the Ewok TV movies, the rise of Star Wars fiction and its importance in the revival of the franchise, and the wave of Star Wars imitators and parodies that flooded theaters and TV screens in the late 1970s and early 1980s – along with dozens of rare publicity stills and photographs of vintage memorabilia.

Susan Brumfield, one of the authors of Jean Ritchie's Kentucky Mother Goose, spoke with Michael Stock host of Folk & Acoustic Music on 91.3 WLRN. She spoke about her book, the passing of Jean Ritchie, and teaching children authentic children songs. Click below to hear more!

Onstage and Backstage 

About the Book
Jean Ritchie's Kentucky Mother Goose is a collection of songs, rhymes and stories recalled by Jean from her own childhood. The youngest of 14 children in a singing family from Viper, Kentucky, she grew up surrounded by the ballads, hymns, play-party songs, singing games and dulcimer tunes that comprised the Ritchie Family repertoire. Her 1955 book, Singing Family of the Cumberlands, portrays the rich musical life of the Ritchies: Jean's mother, Abigail; her father, Balis, who taught her the dulcimer; “Uncle Jason” a prolific collector of “big ballads” and songs; and her older siblings. Now in her 90s, Jean has returned to the earliest recollections of her songs, and the stories that surround them.

Susan Brumfield is the author of Hot Peas and Barley-O: Children's Songs and Games from Scotland and Over the Garden Wall: Children's Songs and Games from England, as well as First, We Sing! Kodaly-Inspired Teaching for the Music Classroom. She teaches music education at Texas Tech University and lives in Lubbock, Texas.

Folk & Acoustic Music is hosted by Michael Stock and the focus of Folk & Acoustic Music is to create a community to support folk music. Throughout history, folk music has traveled in small circles, passed primarily by singing families who did not know how to write them down. Even today, folk music is obscure and hard to find. Through folk music, our history and culture is revealed in songs and stories. Every Sunday afternoon for 3 hours, WLRN airs the only folk music show in South Florida, which includes interviews and performances with local and national touring artists, and plays music from a collection of over 8000 CDs.
