Jan's latest book published June 2024 - Music To Our Ears Again

Folk Radio Hall of Fame Inductee-Jan Vanderhorst 

Great News!  Jan was inducted into the Folk Radio Hall of Fame at the Folk Alliance International Conference. It was established to recognize radio DJs who have made an outstanding contribution to the preservation, promotion, and presentation of folk music, and who have demonstrated and inspired leadership in the broadcast field.⁠ Jan received his award in Kansas City on February 21, 2024.


More exciting News! Jan has just published his third book “Music To Our Ears Again”. This third book contains intimate conversations about personal obstacles faced by musicians attempting to write, record, and perform in these formidable times. This time capsule of interviews (2022-2024) is illustrated with dozens of photographs of Jan with the artists he has met along the way. Each interview chapter is a short inspirational read of how musicians met the challenges, and continue to make music for our ears again!
