Not Perfect. Never Claimed To Be.


WWW
« on: September 27, 2004, 10:23:11 AM »

I find myself listening to a few internet radio stations. Never found a decent folk music station tho'.

    Herewith a couple of recommendations.

    Onion River Radio:
    http://www.onionriverradio.com/tuner.html

    Planet Rock:
    http://www.planetrock.com/

    BBC Radio 4:
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/radio4.shtml?fm

    Anyone else got some contributions for the list?

Spydaradio - folky, country-ey, acousticy, all sorts really bu Bob Paterson Alan O'Leary and Gail Comfort are good starting points.

I think WFMU - Shrunken Plant at http://www.wfmu.org/playlists/SP is great; not only can you listen live, but the playlists go back a couple of years.

One of my favorites is at http://www.wfmu.org/playlists/shows/1649

There is a search engine on the home page to find artists or song titles. Well worth a visit.

www.theurbansofa.co.uk - live on friday evenings at about half seven.

music, oblique chat, nonsense and left-field conspiracy theories ("Have you ever actually shaved a horse...?"). There are samples on the site and full details of how and where to listen.

WNCW is great . We can pick it up on the radio here. They have a lot of great programing. All day during the week they play a mix of everything. It's very eclectic. On the weekends they play Sat old swing jazz for a few hours 10am till 1200 our time then 1200 to 600pm it's bluegrass then on sat night REALLY good blues from 800pm till midnight. Sunday celtic from 100pm till 300pm then old time and country blues for example Jimmy Rogers from 300pm till 500pm. Then world music and a program of blues roots music. I love this station. I hope you guys will give it a listen. I think you'll enjoy it.

I just lurve Onion River Radio!  Great music!  Just got Stevie Ray Vaugns Mary Had a Little Lamb.   Far out Cool

(Planet rock had too much testosterone in it for my office environment Grin)   Onion is much more mellow...

Tried WNCW but theres too much talking (mostly talking every time I listened... I guess it s bit early in the morning.. sure it warms up later)

Now Onion seems to just play music  Smiley

...and now there is www.theacousticstage.net, playing English & Celtic folk, some singer-songwriters (old & new, Bristish & American), bits of blues, stuff from around the world, and anything else which seems to fit. All day, every day, and no commercials.

If you want a radio show dedicated to folk music, then there's Radio TradTunes - www.tradtunes.com

It's an hour long, and is updated ever week.   All the music featured is available to download (for a price!) via the site too.

If it's American folk you're interested in (singer-songwriter / Americana) then how about The Miller Tells Her Tale www.themillertellshertale.co.uk - it's also one of the SpydaRadio shows presented by Karen Miller (me!).  It's 3 hours long, available in streaming mp3 or can be downloaded.   New shows every second Sunday.

Ah ha!, You lot have escaped so far.. Grin...is it alright to plug one's own show?. Well I'll try anyhow.

Chris Conder and I present a show calleed 'cool as folk' from Reading University's Junction 11 radio station, on a Wednesday night from 9pm - 10pm. It's available online at www.1287am.com (or on the actual wireless on 1287am if you are, umm, next to the studio) and our own website is www.coolasfolk.co.uk. We play everything English, Welsh and Scottish - not that we don't like Irish stuff but it's really well served elsewhere - from Fairport to Bellowhead, Cyril Tawney to Martyn Bennet. For an idea look at our playlists.

All our shows are archived so if you want to listen to any of 'em check the archive link. This week we may be mostly babbling about the Oxford Folk Festival among other things.

Cheers

It was mentioned in Jude's BCB radio thread, but worth highlighting again -

Radio Britfolk is up and running, at www.radiobritfolk.co.uk. Several hours of shows from different sources each week, plus noticeboards, gig lists, etc etc. Well worth investigating, and supporting.

And when you have heard all of that, www.theacousticstage.net is still there, 24 hours a day.

And now for something completely different ...... Wink

DR-Folk ( Denmark's Radio )  :    http://www.dr.dk/netradio/?oversigt


"DR-Folk is contemporary music with roots in the many folk music traditions of the
Western world - with the main focus on Danish, Nordic ( Scandinavia, Iceland & Finland etc. )
and Anglo-American music."


Enjoy  Grin
