Weekly live radio show and webcast, Music City Roots, has announced the launch of Roots Radio, a streaming service featuring music, talk and news content.
“Music City Roots is approaching three years on the air and over more than 120 episodes we’ve accumulated an incredible archive of performances by the best roots artists in the world,” says co-producer John Walker. “For quite some time we’ve dreamed of growing and serving our community of music fans with a streaming music service that could be heard virtually anywhere free.”
The streaming music service will pull from a library of more than 500 tracks, compounding weekly from the shows, which have included The Civil Wars, Sam Bush, Ricky Skaggs, Marty Stuart, Elizabeth Cook, Apache Relay, Rodney Crowell, The Kopecky Family Band, Jerry Douglas, and Riders In The Sky. News and talk/interview segements, produced by co-host Craig Havighurst, will be called Connect: The Roots Radio Interview and air Saturday and Tuesday nights at 8:00 pm CT.
Music City Roots went on air in October 2009, now broadcast Wednesday night at 7:00 CT at the Loveless Café Barn. Veteran Grand Ole Opry announcer Keith Bilbrey emcees with help from musical host, Jim Lauderdale, and Havighurst.
