July is Family Month at WoodSongs!


"WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour" lands national time slot on DISH TV and American Forces Radio Network

The live audience roots music program "WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour" has been added to DISH TV and American Forces Radio Network, adding to the show's already robust following.

Starting July 1st, the "WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour," already broadcast nationwide on PBS TV stations, will be airing in an additional 14 million U.S. TV homes on the BlueHighways channel 73 on DISH TV. Airtimes are Friday at 7PM and 10PM EDT, plus Sundays at 1PM and Tuesday 12noon EDT. This is a basic channel available to all DISH subscribers. BlueHighways TV celebrates America through original family-friendly shows and rural lifestyle programming that showcase the nation's great music, including bluegrass, folk, traditional country and western. 

"It is exciting for the artists and the volunteer crew to partner with BlueHighways on DISH," says Johnathon. This is a wonderful complement to our public television and public radio broadcast base and will help this front porch music reach so many more people."

The "WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour," already the biggest folk music broadcast in media history, is broadening its radio presence worldwide as well with additions to the American Forces Radio Network. The show is already being broadcast on their prime channel, The Voice in 173 nations plus all military bases, US Naval ships and coast guard vessels.
