"One of the Top 10 best Americana radio shows"
The Americana Music Radio Show is an hour-long, weekly syndicated radio show made in England for Americana lovers everywhere. We play Americana with a bluesier, rockier, roots vibe.
Here's what the station manager of one of our US syndicates said about the show "Keep up the great work, people are loving it and so are the bands who don't normally have a voice." This was echoed by one of the acts we played "A great show, thanks once again Charles for supporting Americana music." And Australian singer-songwriter Lisa Richards said "Thank you for your eyes, ears and all you do in the music sphere".
