Local Country Music

1 June 2013


Sad news for lovers of specialist music.  One of our members, Mick Smith, who ran the Country Show on BBC East Midlands radio, told us in January’s meeting that his show had been taken off air, along with Celtic Fringe, Folkwaves and the Jazz Programme. 


However, he has decided to set up a weekly posting over the Internet on his own radio station, every Tuesday.  Mick added that, should this run successfully, he will be looking to extend the range of shows to include other specialist music such as Folk and Celtic.  So it would be great for our members to tune in and show some support. 


You can get on to the show through Google - "", & click on ‘Show’.
