Born on January 31, 1915, enthomusicologist, folklorist, archivist, writer and musician Alan Lomax would have been 100 years old January 30, 2015. 

On January 28, Bodega Pop Live on WFMU's Give the Drummer Radio celebrated his life's work archiving music from around the world with three hours of especially blistering and gorgeous tracks from the thousands of hours he recorded, compiled and edited.

Listen to the show now in the archives
