Nashville Public Radio's Bluegrass Breakdown is an emotionally-charged, heart-rending, paint-peeling, splinter-kicking one hour bluegrass show. Host Dave Higgs picks songs that fit the theme of each show - often in unexpected ways, always entertaining.
Every week Mike Kear broadcasts his show, Music From Foggy Hollow on Sydney’s Hawkesbury Radio and then packages it up and ships it to us. And we’re glad he does because everyone loves the laughter, the jokes, the music news and, oh yes, the bluegrass from down under!
Concentrating on music from the 1920s through 1950s, but reaching back to the 1890s and the beginnings of recorded sound, each of Dick’s programs brings listeners a surprising collection of recordings - from cylinders to 78’s and LP’s - highlighting the many facets of folk culture in the United States.
