Starting next week (2/14), the live bluegrass radio series Bluegrass Underground will move to a weekly, Saturday evening slot on WSM AM 650 from Nashville.
The new time is 6:00-7:00 p.m. (ET), just ahead of the Saturday Grand Ole Opry broadcast.
Live concerts are held monthly in The Volcano Room at Cumberland Caverns in McMinnville, TN – in an underground cavern 300 feet below the surface.
Bluegrass Underground producer Todd Mayo explains how a monthly concert can turn into a weekly program.
“The show is still taped once per month but we have added a second act to each show, and will be able to produce enough content (with a few months having second shows added) to move the show to a one hour, once per week progam.”
