6am Repeat is a recurring feature here at Folk Hive in which we stream the latest track that plays incessantly in the earbuds when we awake at that hour and imbibe massive amounts of coffee and cigarettes in preparation for the advancing day. Consider it your jam of the day — a sweet, sweet gift from me to you. I love you, dude.
For the life of me I cannot remember how it came to be that I stumbled on this lovely if not oddly-named fellow, Olentangy John. Regardless — or irregardless, if you’re one of those idiot assholes that thinks that’s a word…or one of those people who just loves a good portmanteau — I’m pretty damned stoked about it. Quite honestly, all I can tell you about this dude is that he found himself in the Appalachian foothills sometime in 2002. Obviously, the Appalachian foothills bit combined with some stellar banjo pickin’, means we love this shit.
