Lots of bluegrass radio options this weekend

Every so often, we find a wealth of opportunities to catch live bluegrass on the radio, and this next few days promises a bonanza over the air, online and via satellite.

Dennis Jones will have Dan Paisley & The Southern Grass performing live on WNCW this afternoon (5/9) during the 5:00 p.m. hour (EDT). WNCW broadcasts on several frequencies in western NC, and streams their signal over the Internet as well.

Both the Friday and Saturday Grand Ole Opry broadcasts this weekend will include performances from The Del McCoury Band and The Whites. Jesse McReynolds & The Virginia Boys will also appear on Friday. The show is available over the air in the Nashville market on WSM AM 650, and simulcast worldwide via online streaming at wsmonline.com.

One more, but with no live music… An interview with Doyle Lawson will be aired several times this weekend on XM’s enLighten channel (XM 34). Doyle will join host Dan Dixon for an in-depth discussion of Doyle’s music and the faith that informs it. Look for Doyle at 7:00 p.m. tonight (5/9) and again on Saturday (5/10) at 5:00 p.m.
