Bluegrass radio in spades

scr.jpgToday (1/16) is a banner day for finding choice bluegrass online. After the Mountain Heart and David Bromberg live set at noon on WDVX, there are three other opportunities on broadcast and online radio.

At 1:00 p.m., Ralph Stanley II will join Gracie Muldoon for a live interview on, cybercasting bluegrass 24/7 on the internet. He’ll be talking about his superb new CD, This One Is II, which was released this past September.

Then at 3:00 p.m.,  switch over to WNCW to hear a live set from Steep Canyon Rangers. They have a show with Larry Keel at the Orange Peel in Asheville, NC and will make a stop in Spindale to pick and sing – and talk about all things SCR – at the WNCW studio.

Catch the show broadcast in western NC at 88.7, or via online streaming online.

Finally, The Steeldrivers have a spot on tonight’s Friday Opry, appearing in the opening (9:00-9:30 p.m.) segment. You can always hear The Grand Ole Opry over the air from Nashville at WSM 650 AM, cybercast at
