OLD SCHOOL COUNTRY Premieres June 5th--a new vinyl program hosted by The Pipe

Starting Sunday, June 5th, the VINYL SHELF goes strictly C&W for a brand new weekly hour-long internet radio show called OLD SCHOOL COUNTRY featuring hillbilly music from the 50's, 60's and 70's--back when country WAS cool. Each Sunday for six weeks I'll delve into my country collection and play some classics that country lovers may not have heard in a while and OPEN MINDED FOLKS will discover for the first time. Sometimes I'll play big country hits from the 30's, 40's and maybe even something from the 80's, but no "ELVIRA" I promise!!!! It's the best of the real deal CLASSIC COUNTRY from 45s, LPs and even 78s...
And YES, there will STILL be country music featured on the regular VINYL SHELF shows (still on Fridays) but this will be a new way to introduce y'all to some great singers like RAY PRICE, FARON YOUNG, SUSAN RAYE, MEL TILLIS, MARTY ROBBINS and many more...and of course there's all your favorites like CONWAY, MERLE, LORETTA, LEFTY, BUCK, DOLLY, HANK and every week we guarantee one track by The Possum, GEORGE JONES...

Coming JUNE 5th to this blog!

  1. Awwww yeahhhh... like the stuff your parents played. I may not have appreciated it then, but now I know better. Seems like once the W got dropped from the genre the music started falling to shit. Can't wait. As far as I am concerned modern country is just a farce... and one not worth thinking of, much less listening to. This is gonna be good.
