Del McCoury will be a featured guest this Thursday (6/15) on The Big Show, more commonly known as The John Boy & Billy show. It is broadcast from Charlotte, NC each weekday from 6:00-10:00 a.m. on nearly 100 stations and boasts a very loyal following for the hosts’ mix of zany “redneck humor,” interviews and musical parodies. Their affiliate list is skewed towards stations in the southern US, but the show can be heard in many midwestern cities as well.
They have been regular supporters and proponents of bluegrass music over the years. Perhaps not so strongly as they boost NASCAR and WWF, but enough to be a noticable aspect of the program. Jerry Douglas and Earl Scruggs have been repeat, and semi-frequent guests. The folks who syndicate The Big Show were also instrumental in getting Cindy Baucom’s Knee Deep In Bluegrass program off the ground, and into fairly wide syndication.
