I'm streaming radio this morning, visiting some old roots music friends. This week is FUNdrive week at community radio,KRFC-FM in Fort Collins, Colorado. We started out 5-1/2 years ago to bring a diverse mix of roots music and public affairs programming from a local perspective. As a volunteer effort (the manager was the only paid staff to start), the programming ebbs and flows over time. Here's a snapshot of where they're at today:

So it does look like the Americana Chart still has some influence on the midsection of the new albums at KRFC. Give 'em a listen online--more acoustic mornings, more wierd stuff later in the day. Stream for yourself, you might be like what you find.

    KHYI made a splash in Dallas but I hadn't heard much about 'em last few years. Glad they're still making a go of it. KCUV in Denver gave up the ghost a couple weeks ago. They came on-air as a commercial AM station, but progressed more AAA and frat rock when they got on the FM dial. Seems like radios just as bad as the overal music industry, never satisfied with doing one thing really well, always after the next big thing.
