About the show

Brought to you each Friday, 10pm to Saturday 3am on Hawkesbury Radio 89.9FM, and broadcast over the internet on and other stations.

We play the latest bluegrass, newgrass and acoustic country music from Australia and overseas. We usually feature a new album each week, playing 4 - 8 tracks off the album during the show and often have live interviews with bluegrass personalities or artists.

We welcome listener requests and comments. You can call the show on (02) 45 879 899 and request tunes, or comment about what you are hearing. We love hearing from listeners - it helps get through the long early morning hours. If you prefer you can email the show to request more information about something we've said or done during the show, or let us know about things the other listeners might be interested in.
