My ancestry DNA results are in... on my father's side: pure Viking/Scandinavian all the way through - on my mother's side: 25% Welsh, 25% Spanish & 50% Tuareg - I suppose that explains why I've always favoured the colour blue...
Yes, of course you are welcome to submit your own music to the Americana Music Radio Show – that's how we discover new talent although given the pressure on time (we only have 59 minutes) there's no guarantee we'll be able to play it. However, a few brief guidelines...
* You can physically submit music on a CD – use the Oak Lodge contact address you'll find in the footer of this page.
* You can also submit music digitally as an MP3 file (or files) BUT PLEASE DO NOT send the MP3 as an email attachment (it will kill our internet) instead email it as a WeTransfer, Dropbox or similar link that we can then download. And NOTE: MP3 files only.
* Also include some short biographical notes about you, the track (is it a taster track from an album etc) and any social media links you have, so we can fully promote it.
The first episode of my new Americana Music Radio Show drops today on A1 Radio at 4pm UK (repeats 6pm Friday) – we've tracks from The Highwomen, Neil Young & Crazy Horse + an interview & tracks from Sam Coe – and much more. Listen online via TuneIn Radio & at www.a1radio.co.uk
Urban Fantasist is here to inform and entertain you with tales of pop culture, Americana music, geek, folklore, urban myths, and the weird. "Fun and high strangeness" is how one reader describes it. "Rock & Woo-Woo" is another apt description.
Hosted by Reuters correspondent and barrister turned writer, podcaster, radio show host, award-winning tech journalist and werewolf hunter Charles Christian. The site also has links to Charles Christian's books including fiction, nonfiction and latest reviews, as well as his Weird Tales and Americana Music radio shows.
