On the Thursday of the 40th annual Alaska Folk Festival, members of the Overby Family Band, Jason and Rachel Overby, and Telsche Mae dropped by the station and we had a fun conversation. In addition to life and music in Alaska, they spoke about their involvement with three different band configurations including the Overby Family Band, Spirit of the Red City, and Ode to the Roddes.  We started by listening to their recording of Freight Train from the Ode to the Roddes CD.
