Borderlines with Rick August
Borderlines is a two-hour weekly exploration of neo-traditional country, alternative country, contemporary hard country and country-folk, with occasional dashes of blues, singer-songwriter folk, jazz-related roots music, folk-rock and lots more. show more
Our primary mission is to showcase the musical genre that Irish and Scottish settlers bequeathed to the New World, and to demonstrate the musical quality and literacy of the work of hundreds and thousands of lesser-known country artists who will not let their work be dragged down to the level of current commercial country.
Think you hate country? Give this a try. No phoney “hat acts” or mindless country-pop here – just two hours of listenable, high-quality roots and real country music!
