Hog Time Tracks

Some of you may be aware that Live365, the host for Mandozine Radio, was shut down on Jan. 31. Thousands of Internet radio stations went dead. Many broadcaster found a new home for their station, but many did not due to the increased royalty costs. The only viable options have been Radionomy, which requires a listener hour threshold that many stations can't meet, and 8tracks. Mandozine Radio is now on Radionomy, and my Theme Time series is hosted on 8tracks.

I am saddened by the impact the loss of Live365 has had on independent broadcasters. We are all in this together. If you are into Bluegrass music, I urge you to check out Hog Time Tracks. This is the 8tracks replacement for Hog Time Radio. You won't find a better curated list of great Bluegrass music.
