We’ve added a brand new, locally produced program to our lineup. Americana Underground, with host StevieB will be taking the place of Silvertone Ramble on Monday mornings from 10am to noon. (Bill, the host of Silvertone Ramble, retired from hosting a few months ago.)

Americana Underground features artists from subgenres of Americana including alternative country, roots rock, and progressive bluegrass. Traditional influences are also explored and hopefully you will hear from bands that you don’t commonly hear on other radio stations.
