"Folk Arts Rare Records was founded in 1967 by Lou Curtiss. Lou has old time, folk, blues, jazz, rhythm & blues, rock & roll, show tunes and a vast inventory of 78 rpm records. Folk Arts is the home of the Lou Curtiss Sound Library, which comprises over 90,000 hours and 90 years of vintage sound recordings.
Lou hosts Jazz Roots every Sunday night on KSDS 88.3 FM in San Diego. You can listen online at jazz88online.org.
Over the course of the past 30 years, Lou has organized or booked over 50 music festivals in San Diego, including the Adams Avenue Street Fair and the Adams Avenue Roots Festival."
