Though he retired from the airwaves in 2015, the organization Folk Alliance International hopes to continue his legacy with their second annual Gene Shay Folk DJ Scholarship. FIA is seeking an emerging DJ with deep knowledge of the folk scene in the hopes of supporting the next generation of broadcasters and folk musicians.
