Lynne Butler: new playlist arrangements

Lynne Butler (UK) sends the playlists for her 'Butler's Boudoir Bluegrass' and 'Lynne Butler's Eurograss' radio shows (see the EBB's separate 'Radio playlists' post), together with this message to artists whose records she presents on air:

Due to high influx of work this year on top of my normal work, with loads of rehearsals in place as a consequence, and due to the fact that these radio shows are entirely voluntary, I am having to change the format slightly so that I can still do them and keep you all promoted! You will all get regular airplay, but the show that goes out on UKCountryradio.com will also go out the following week on Bluegrassplanetearth.com; so basically the shows will be repeated but to a different audience.

Because of this, however, it does mean that rotation for all of you will be on a slightly longer basis; but on a positive side, you will be getting high amounts of airplay in one week around the world. It works out, though, that the same show is not played in the same week. This week's playlists are a good example. Below is tomorrow's playlist for UKcountryradio.com, airing at 20:00 on 18 January and repeated at 16:00 on 19th; and then below that is the playlist for bluegrassplanetearth.com which has been airing since Monday 16th, Tuesday 17th, Wednesday (tonight) 18th, and 19th at 21:00 (this was the show that went out on UKCountryradio.com last Thursday). I hope this is as clear as mud to you all, ha ha! If you have any questions, do please stop by and ask.

With the festival season approaching, Lynne recommends UKBluegrass.com as a guide to events in Britain, and also gives links to

the wonderful European festivals: EWOB, La Roche, Budapest, Czech Jamboree, just to name a few! Fabulous family events with stunning scenery and hospitality at every single one - a must-see experience.

Lynne's e-mail newsletter includes much more useful information - contact her by e-mail to get on her mailing list.
