Daniels Mullins, good friend and semi-regular contributor to Bluegrass Today, has launched his own daily radio show on Classic Country Radio, a network of stations in Southern Ohio. It’s a family tradition for Daniel, broadcasting on the same station as his father and grandfather before him, and is delighted to offer The Daniel Mullins Midday Music Spectacular each weekday from 10:00 a.m. to noon (EDT).
Classic Country Radio plays a mix of bluegrass and traditional country, and broadcasts on WBZI (AM 1500) in Xenia, WKFI (AM 1090) in Wilmington, WEDI (AM 1130) in Dayton, and in all those markets at FM 100.3. For bluegrass listeners world-wide, their signal is also streamed live at myclassiccountry.com.
Daniel had previously hosted a show called Bending The Strings each weekend on the network, which featured more modern bluegrass and alt-country acts, but his new daily program is expected to combine bluegrass, Americana, and country for two hours daily. It’s a big promotion in the radio world to go to mornings, and Daniel is confident that he can entertain the network’s many listeners.
We think that station manager/owner Joe Mullins (of Radio Ramblers fame) may just be trying to keep this talented broadcasting prodigy close to home as he hears the siren call of young Nashville in his head. Score one for the old man.
Daniel will continue to write periodically for Bluegrass Today, and provide publicity services for Flatt Lonesome and other bluegrass artists. He also manages retail operations for Classic Country Radio.
Congratulations to Daniel on the new show, the first edition of which aired today. We know you’ll do well!
