Long before trains, planes, and automobiles, rivers were America's highways - for commerce, for exploration, for the fulfillment of dreams of a better life in a better place. No wonder then that there are so many songs in American folk music about rivers, and about all that they meant to the people who traveled them. Herewith a selection of songs about some of those rivers - and some of those dreams.

"Afoot and lighthearted I take to the open road," wrote Walt Whitman more than a century ago, and as summer comes hard upon us, the yearning for new sights and new experiences - "to see the elephant" as they used to say in the old American West - will entice many of us to leave the comfortable security of hearth and home for adventures of delight and discovery. An hour of thoughtful folk music about journeys and their significance awaits a simple click of the mouse, as we head out to where highways never end...

April is the month of cherry blossoms, roses, young love - and the cruelest month as well, according to the poet. The roots music of April reflects that divided character, with songs of Nature and romance sitting cheek-by-jowl with tunes of shipwrecks and bloodshed. Join writer and radio host Jim Moran for two hours of the music of Aprils past and present, from 15th century British ballads to bottleneck blues to contemporary country - with a hip-hop reading of Longfellow's "Midnight Ride of Paul Revere" thrown in for good measure. It's an eclectic and entertaining two hours of roots music - and beyond.
