Volunteers are the backbone of Bluegrass Country.  

As a listener-supported, nonprofit station, we depend on our talented and dedicated volunteers to support all our operations.

Here are some of the volunteer opportunities at Bluegrass Country:

Website Content Entry —  Bluegrasscountry.org is our main source of information and listener involvement. We can train you to enter updates to keep the site fresh and a source of important information for all bluegrass fans.

Production Assistant/Audio Editor — From working with the world’s largest bluegrass library, to editing digital audio programs, this area makes bluegrass country radio sound great. Interested in this area but have no experience? We believe this is a trainable, and important role for a volunteer. Contact us for more information at volunteers@bluegrasscountry.org

PR and Marketing — We need your help in getting our message out with email newsletters to listeners, partners, and social media. If you work or have worked in the PR or marketing field, you know enough to make a real difference.

Bluegrass Country Ambassador — Bluegrass Country is involved in many area festivals, concerts, clubs and fundraising events. Depending on the event, volunteers may be asked to set up, sell merchandise, staff ticket tables, take photographs, clean up and more. Many of these events happen on the weekend.

Traffic Director — No, not the traffic we all drive in daily. This is the traffic of All Things Not Musical aired on Bluegrass Country. Underwriting credits, station program announce­ments — all fall under this umbrella. It’s all achieved by a “traffic system,” an app that schedules and keeps track of these announce­ments. If you enjoy and have bookkeeping experience, this may be your way to help Bluegrass Country in a big way. For more information, please check “Traffic Director” and we will be in touch to explain this important role in more detail.

If you have any questions or just want to share something, just send an email to volunteers@bluegrasscountry.org. We’d love to get to know you!

Are you a grant writer?

Please consider giving your time to our grant development project.  Your effort can make a major contribution to the future of Bluegrass Country.

The Bluegrass Country Foundation needs support from potential grant funding.  At present, we rely solely on the contributions from listeners like you and small underwriters.

We have much to offer the community and America’s cultural history.  Fifty years of continuous Bluegrass and Americana radio programs have established Bluegrass Country Radio as a significant record keeper of archival audio programs, dating back to our inception in 1967.

If you’re experienced, we need you!  Please check Grant Writer on the submission form, and we will be in touch to discuss our goals and how you can make a major difference in 2019.
