Mac Wiseman visits XM in Nashville

Legendary bluegrass pioneer Mac Wiseman spent two hours on the air earlier this week on XM’s Bluegrass Junction with host Kyle Cantrell. Their chat was carried live on XM, and served as a kick off for a planned series of live shows to be carried by the satellite radio provider.

Mac talked about some of the memorable moments in his 63 year career in music, including stories about Lester Flatt, Earl Scruggs, Woody Herman and Bill Monroe.

XM will re-broadcast the Wiseman interview this coming Sunday (8/6) at 10:00 a.m. (EDT).

Bluegrass Junction host Cantrell now features live shows from the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum each Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 3:00-6:00 p.m. (Eastern). The 24/7 bluegrass feed can be found on XM Channel 14, DirectTV channel 812, and also on AOL Radio.
