Count Down Yonder is the name of the newest show to debut on Sirius Bluegrass, channel 65 on the Sirius Satellite Radio network.
Each Friday at 3:00 p.m. they will announce and spin the top 17 songs as determined by listener requests. Host Chris Jones tells us that there isn’t any special significance to the number 17 – it just worked out well to fit that many songs into a one hour program.
The #1 song from last week – the first week of the countdown – was Alison’s Band by The Charlie Sizemore Band. You can add your own requests by calling the Sirius Request Line (877-33-SIRIUS), or by email.
Count Down Yonder is rebroadcast on Saturdays at 9:00 p.m. and Sundays at 3:00 p.m. (all times EST).
