The Beachwood 24/7 Alt-Country Internet Radio Guide

The Internet is the best thing that ever happened to alt-country. That's because it's a terrific way to listen to all those (mostly non-commercial) radio stations nationwide and overseas that have a little or a lot of programming devoted to alt-country, honky tonk, country rock, rockabilly, blues, Cajun, zydeco and roots music in general.

Listed below is a day-by-day, hour-by-hour guide to the over-the-air stations I've found that have such programming on high-speed internet simulcasts.

Plus, if you listen to these stations, you'll get to hear who's playing gigs in towns you'll never go to . . . as well as traffic on the I-5.

(All times Central. Show descriptions provided from station websites. Last updated: 5/21/2014)

SUNDAY

8 a.m. - Noon: Bluegrass, Etc. (KCSN - Northridge)

From the misty Banks of the Ohio to the Blue Moon of Kentucky - where bluegrass was born - Bluegrass, Etc. continues the grand tradition. Longtime host Frank Hoppe features traditional bluegrass, bluegrass gospel, old-time and early country music to move your heart and your feet. Legendary artists, from the early stars of country music like Hoyt Ming & His Pep Steppers and the Carter Family to contemporary performers like Ralph Stanley, Alison Krauss and Ricky Skaggs, are broadcast directly to you, commercial-free.

9 a.m. - 11 a.m.: The Moonshine Show (WKCR - Columbia University)

Bluegrass and old-time music programming first appeared on WKCR in 1963 under the direction of renowned banjo player,Pete Wernick. The Moonshine Show continues this long standing tradition, presenting the hill country string music of the Mid-South via classic recordings and frequent live in-studio performances. The full spectrum of this living art form is covered each Sunday morning.

Followed by The Tennessee Border Show: The Tennessee Border Show focuses on the masters of country music from the latter-half of the 20th century. The show is also not afraid to delve back into country music forefathers, like Hank Williams and Jimmie Rodgers. Over the years, the show has established itself as a source for information about 'real' country music, where elsewhere, commercial country has had the effect of erasing the real music from the record.

10:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.: Down Home Country (WUSB - Stony Brook)

Country and western, rockabilly, western swing from the '20s to the present, from the popular to the obscure. Alternately hosted by Debbie de Waltoff and Mary Lamont.

11 a.m. - 1 p.m.: The Hot Burrito Show (WRFL - Lexington)

On The Hot Burrito Show, we play what Gram Parsons called "Cosmic American Music" - a sound that ranges from country and soul to gospel and rock and roll. A lot of the songs we play on The Hot Burrito Show might be labeled alternative country or roots rock, but we like to mix our Uncle Tupelo with healthy shots of Merle Haggard and Al Green, Emmylou Harris and Robbie Fulks, Lucinda Williams and Billy Joe Shaver, Alejandro Escovedo and The Blind Boys of Alabama. It's a big barn, in other words, with plenty of room for revival meetings and rowdy honky tonk parties. Drop by some time and, to paraphrase Dan Baird, remember to bring your Bible and a bottle!

2 p.m. - 4 p.m.: Tell The Band To Go Home (CJUM - Winnipeg)

Tell The Band To Go Home is a weekly celebration of great songs and the people who bring them to life. I play songs from some of the greatest songwriters of all time, including John Prine, Lyle Lovett, Fred Eaglesmith, Willie P. Bennett, and many more. Along with the legends, I also focus on the the hottest new writers of today. Every week, I try to have a different musical guest who can give us some insight into their songs and their personality. Previous guests include: David Francey, Gurf Morlix, James McMurtry, Eliza Gilkyson, John Mayer and many more. Also, I'm often joined by local singer/songwriters in the studio for a talk and some live music. Local favorites like Del Barber, JP Hoe, Nathan, The Wailin' Jennys, Scott Nolan and many more have all stopped by. If you're interested in great music on a Sunday afternoon, check out Tell The Band To Go Home every week.

Roots 'n Boots with Michael Young
More than a specific genre of music, Roots n' Boots is a place. A dusty highway where Hank Williams welcomes a hitchhiking Woody Guthrie into his long white Cadillac. Where Neil Young stops his old pickup long enough for Gram Parsons and Emmylou to hop in. An old saloon where George Jones buys one too many rounds for Wayne Hancock inside, while Willie Nelson shares a smoke with Steve Earle out back. A front porch where a firecracker like Neko Case can discover nobility in the plain talk of Loretta Lynn, and Merle Haggard unlocks the secrets of love and wanderlust for Alejandro Escovedo over a cold glass of iced tea.

6 p.m.-9 p.m. KCSN (MP3 stream)

5ft High & Rising
The sounds heard on Five Feet High & Rising are described as "alt-country," "Whatever that is" as the music magazine No Depression famously exclaims on its masthead. I like to call it "Eclectic Country" - a potpourri of folk, blues, bluegrass, singer-songwriter &, of course, country. "Alt-Country" is a buzzword & others such as "Americana" "Anti-Folk" & "New Grass" have been invented to describe this style of music. Most of these terms have become somewhat overused but whatever the words are that we use to describe it, interest in new country music remains as strong as ever.
