We are working on a shiny new site dedicated to hosting the Australian Blues & Roots Airplay Charts plus many other things music wise...it is currently being bent into shape
The Australian Blues & Roots Airplay Chart tracks what Australian Independent Radio presenters are playing on their shows each month.
The statistics the charts are based on is real radio airplay data contributed by numerous blues radio presenters from stations all around Australia.
Apart from the monthly chart we will feature reviews of new releases and gigs, as well as festival and gig photography.
We have some other great ideas in the pipeline...
Live Music - festivals
Festival season 2017
Hosts Jeff Konkel of Broke & Hungry Records and Roger Stolle of Cat Head Delta Blues & Folk Art travel Mississippi’s back roads in search of juke joints, house parties, moonshine and the musicians who keep this art form alive. New episodes of Moonshine & Mojo Hands will be added each Thursday.
