Nice feature from Bluegrass Today about the Early Days of Bluegrass book and CD set, now available for purchase from Bluegrass Country.  Note:  Our supply of books was caught in the COVID-19 lockdown, but we have more on the way and will be able to ship them to purchasers soon.  We apologize for the delay.

Some Bluegrass Country listeners who reside in the outlying areas of the Washington, DC region are reporting that they cannot currently receive 88.5-HD2 broadcasts. This is a temporary condition. Because of the priority of dealing with COVID-19 issues, WAMU-FM has not completed final tuning of the new broadcast antenna. In the meantime, we suggest you listen to our web stream or download one of our smartphone apps.
