Unfocussed Folk

Americana Music On The Radio


Americana music from Nashville and around the country and around the world.

We play Folk, Electric Folk, roots Country, modern and Outlaw Country, acoustic music of all types and Rock music that influenced the people who now create Americana music.

We play songs from emerging and veteran artists, some known, some who've worked in the background for years. In addition to new and old records, we play sample/work tapes and unreleased recordings from working songwriters.
