The HillVille on Roots ‘N’ Boots Radio Show Sunday
We’re plum tickled to be appearing this Sunday, March 11, 2012, on the Roots ‘N ‘ Boots radio show, which airs from 5-8 p.m. (EST) on WFPK (91.9) out of Louisville, Ky. Fear not, friends who live outside of the Louisville listening area, you can stream the program live via WFPK’s Web site.
The show’s rock ‘n’ rollin’, honky-tonkin’ DJ, Michael Young, has been exploring the space where twang-twinged rock and rock-charged country meet. He says of the spectrum of music played on the program, “there’s room for outlaws, preachers, rockers and prophets.” We’re not sure which of those categories we, Niki King and Beth Newberry, fit into, but only time will tell. Michael has invited on during the 6 o’clock hour to talk about the inter-connection of urban and rural life, particularly Appalachia.
We have been long time fans of both Roots ‘N’ Boots and Michael, and we are excited—and a bit nervous—to appear in a new medium. But we are polishing our best cowgirl boots and practicing our vocal exercises like Show Biz pros to get ready for our radio debut Sunday night.
To go along with this, we’ll be posting a couple of music-related features on Thursday and music-themed posts this week on FaceBook and Twitter. Also, check out this nice feature article on Michael from Louisville Magazine from last year. Hope you’ll listen in on Sunday!
