Authentic western swing cowboy music on the radio
[Return to Topics]

My radio show, Cowboy Joe's Radio Ranch is peridically broadcast over WBAI New York and streaming over the Net. The show is on Public radio; therefore I don't make a dime. I volunteer my time because I love the music, and the commercial stations won't touch my format. It would help my chances of getting a regular decent time slot if interested folks who would like to hear real Western music would take the time to write a brief letter to WBAI's management requesting more air time for my show. You can write to Matthew Finch, Arts Director, WBAI Radio, 120 Wall St., 10th Floor, New York, NY 10005. Phone: 212-209-2840. Your support would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.

I'll be glad to send a letter of support.

Mailed my letter this morning. I told them if they didn't broadcast you more regularly, I'd come up there with guns, knives, and rattlesnakes. Wait a minute, we're talking about NY City: nobody there would be fazed by that. Anyhow, to digress to your pigeon problem, I had a neighbor who used rubber snakes to scare away birds who were a nuisance. Perhaps a trip to the novelty store is in order.

Ole Cuss - Thanks for the letter and thanks for the tip about rubber snakes.

Cowboy Joe- I'm sure many of us are working up the request letter to WBAI mgmt. Please give us more information about where, when, and how to "tune in". We got NPR out here, WOI-AM. The "streaming" stuff I don't know anything about. Some of this stuff is strictly big city, but some is everywhere and all that's needed is some know how. Thank you for the music- yes I enjoy ABBA, IHank

Thanks IHank for writing and for your kind words of support. Since I haven't been told by management when my next show will be broadcast, probably the best way to keep track would be to stay posted to my home page for an update. I believe "streaming" refers to a similcast live transmission of a radio broadcast. In other words, you can listen to a radio show live over the internet while it is being broadcast locally. When my next show is broadcast there will be a direct link to the internet site posted on my home page. I'm not a techie myself, so those more literate on the subject can educated IHank and me.
