We’ve posted many times about The Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour, and their ongoing support of bluegrass music. The program, which is now available on both radio and television, originates from Lexington, KY (deep in bluegrass country), has featured most every prominent bluegrass artist amidst the wide variety of acoustic and folk performers showcased each week.
Woodsongs is syndicated on NPR radio affiliates and PBS TV stations all over the world, and streamed online through a number of web portals.
After offering all this great music this past few years, host Michael Jonathan is now asking listeners and viewers for some assistance. The show needs to upgrade their television broadcast to high definition, and is looking at $180,000 in new gear to make this happen.
A special page on their web site is set up to accept donations to this end. If you would like to assist but prefer not to do so online, you can contact the show by email or phone (859-255-5700) for more details.
Donations may also be sent by mail:
