Bluegrass Signal, a show that appears three times a week on Bluegrass Country, originates at KALW-FM in San Francisco.   Since the 90s, the show has featured live in-studio performances from Bay Area musicians.

Producer and host Peter Thompson and KALW have assembled 40 of the best of these performances on CD, and made the set available to Bluegrass Country listeners as a special gift during our spring membership campaign.

Turn Your Radio On is a 2-CD, 40-track collection of bluegrass and old time music recorded live at KALW from 1999-2019.

This album includes original and traditional music from 33 Northern California musical groups and an 8-page booklet with complete credits, notes, and photos.

Here’s a list of the artists on the CD.  For a full listing of the songs, go to the Bluegrass Signal website.
