Front Page Bluegrass News comes to Ireland!

Thanks to Front Page Bluegrass News (USA) for the news that Ireland's RTE Radio 1 will begin airing the news to bluegrass fans on Niall Toner's popular Roots Freeway Radio show, beginning on 3 December 2011. Listeners will be able to hear the news between 11.00 p.m. and 12.00 midnight every Saturday to keep up-to-date on all that's newsworthy in bluegrass.

Front Page Bluegrass News, syndicated from America, was founded in January 2011 by long-time broadcaster Brian McNeal. It is the radio extension of McNeal's popular Prescription Bluegrass Blog attached to his own bluegrass music programme, and is the only syndicated radio news programme of its kind for bluegrass. Front Page Bluegrass News is delivered free to radio affiliates two times a week, and in addition to US radio stations it is already heard on four stations in Canada and two more in the Netherlands.
