Just the best...
Another long time listener to this Bronx, NY station (till I moved just outta range ;...( This five minute visit with these "city folk" (americana, folk, jazz, rock, country, jamband, ..., ) artists is just enough to inform you about what's going on with them, while still leaving you wanting more of their music... Check out the 'cast, and then visit their website for more...
I first listened to this station to hear an interview with Luka Bloom. I was hooked. What a great radio station and what great music. Definately worth listening to. I found it difficult to move away from the radio. The combination of interviews and music really grabs you.
