Here's episode #79 of AM Radio, where 'AM' stands for Americana Music - enjoy!
Americana music. Let’s just call it American roots music, combining country, blues, bluegrass, folk, R&B and rock. So, most anything – but I usually like a bit of twang to my music. I’m John Ford, and this is AM Radio.
“Americana” was originally a marketing term for a broad spectrum of musical styles that didn’t fit into the mainstream radio genres; debate still rages as to what kind of music it actually describes. Join me every Tuesday evening from 7-9pm, and explore with me this ever-inclusive “genre” – so much good music to play, so little time!
