Thursday 7:00 – 10:00 pm

Art Hanson, host of Americana Breakdown, describes his show as “Music for people who like country music … and for those who don’t …”

Art got his start in radio in 1996 at a 5000 watt AM station north of Atlanta hosting a weekly Americana show. Since then, he’s hosted shows in Connecticut, Ohio, Washington DC and Oregon. Listeners may remember that Art hosted Americana Breakdown on WAMU’s Bluegrass Country for five years.

Art is glad to be back at Bluegrass Country and hopes to bring you some of the “best music you’ve never heard” every week.

Playlists for Americana Breakdown are available at
