Terkel had a deep love of folk music (his tributes to Woody Guthrie are especially inspired) and interviews in this topic include Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Bob Dylan, Steve Goodman, Janis Joplin, Odetta, John Prine, Buffy St. Marie, John Jacob Niles, Jean Redpath, Pete Seeger, Doc Watson and many dozens more. He also engaged with important chroniclers, promoters and scholars of folk music like Alan Lomax and Terkel's good friend Win Stracke, musician and founder of the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, an organization that Terkel was close to. In addition, Terkel often wove folk music into his other radio conversations and loved to make connections between topics like work, immigration, class divides, folk legends and the rich history of folk music.
