Yes… you read that right. It’s a bluegrass radio show on television.
While community news, announcements and weather updates display on the screen, viewers/listeners will hear the Bluegrass Tracks audio feed, featuring music from the many fine local and regional bluegrass musicians in the southern Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountain regions, plus selections from the best of traditional bluegrass, old and new. The show runs for an hour, and repeats four times daily (Monday-Saturday) at 8:00 and 11:00 a.m., and 3:00 and 10:00 p.m.
Jon C. Moon, who manages the show, tells us that they hope to eventually incorporate on-screen graphics with song, artist and recording information such as you commonly find on digital cable or satellite radio.
Bands who would like to send music for airplay on the show can find all the information they need on the Bluegrass Tracks web site.
