The archive project, like  folk music, is  an on-going endeavor. All recording is done either on location with the artist or in New York City and Washington, D.C.

Advance archive, production and scheduling takes many months. Some interviews are scheduled a year in advance. It is estimated that ten hours of archival research, travel, recording, post-production and funding resources are required for each minute of the completed and produced interview.
