Radio Velvet Playlists

Radio Velvet logoNow…while I have ‘filed’ this page under the Bluegrass Radio menu, I have to make a confession. While Radio Velvet is a Bluegrass internet radio station my program – Bluegrass & Beyond –  is not a typical Radio Velvet show. Bluegrass & Beyond is a mixture of Bluegrass (mostly progressive Bluegrass), Americana, Country, Folk and whatever else takes my fancy to play – no-one has complained yet so I shall continue to play tracks from the likes of Chris Pandolfi, Missy Raines & The New Hip, Sturgill Simpson, The Cactus Blossoms, Martin Simpson, Darrell Scott and many others.

B&B Poster with emailBluegrass & Beyond airs via the internet every Tuesday between 5-6pm UK (6-7pm CET) with the show being repeated on Thursday between 2-3pm UK (3-4pm CET).

While the playlists for the shows are posted onto the Radio Velvet Facebook page, I shall start posting them here as well.

Lately, on the Radio Velvet Facebook page I have been posting ‘teasers’ of some of the artists whose tracks will be included in the current week’s programme – I shall post these here as a preface to the playlists.
