Mississippi John Hurt and Skip James, WTBS-FM, Cambridge, MA, October 1964

Very casual but very amazing broadcast featuring these two American heroes, shortly after they were “rediscovered.” Must’ve been a fairly bizarre experience for them, after having been ignored for 30+ years, to suddenly be on the radio, interviewed by fawning fans. James, in particular, seems to be taking it all in a stride, though — as if he expected it to happen all along. Al Wilson, later of Canned Heat, pops up too. A very worthwhile listen via Midnight Cafe.
