Check out newsletter for upcoming bluegrass events!
Following is the link to WPLN out of Nashville. Once a week they have a radio show titled “Bluegrass Breakdown” you can listen live or to recorded shows. The show includes live performances, interviews, theme shows and just good bluegrass music. The DJ also provides a little history of the songs.
For those who haven’t tried this yet, there is a really cool Internet radio web site at www.pandora.com. Once you log onto the site, simply enter in your favorite artist or song, and the web site creates a radio station that features songs by that artist as well as similar types of music. You can enter any artist ranging from new to old from Bill Monroe to Ralph Stanley or any other bluegrass favorite. You can also searchÂ for stations that others have created.Â I searched on bluesgrass stations and there wasÂ three pages of links to choose from.Â The web site has compiled a wide variety of songs that make up the playlist. It is a great way to listen bluegrass music.
If you working on your computer and get an urge to listen to some bluegrass, try the Montana Radio Cafe at http://www.kxzi.com/. The playlist includes a mix of bluegrass, folk and jazz with an ample helping of bluegrass. The web-streaming radio station is based in Creston, MT (between Kalispell and Big Fork). In September, the radio station was featured in an article in the New York Times. There is a link to the article on the web site. This is definitely worth checking out.
