About The Music...
The music includes Nostalgia going back to 1897(the beginning of recorded music)both in acoustical and electronic such as Cylinder Wax, 78 RPM, and other formats of that time and has been “cleaned up” in the best way in order to enjoy and to comply for DCMA rules and Public Domain recordings.
There are over 5,100 audio nostalgic files and over 11,000 Old Time Radio Shows from 1929 to 1962. At times you may hear Public Domain Classical Music recordings(3,000). Also offered in Oldies formatted music from 1954-79(over 68,000)titles from Top 40/Hot 100 and other charts.
This network does offer over 48,000 songs from AAA(Acoustical Country)to Western Swing and 20 sub-genres going back to the roots of the country from 1920 to today(literally). This includes Local, UN-signed, indie music from solo artists and bands, but the goal is to have a large selection of female artists or artists that are not played much by mainstream radio.
Other fine listener testimonies.."Thank You for playing local talent and a wider variety on CGR 2-Country" from Bill-Portland Oregon and "I LOVE the tunes you offer" from Terry-Dublin Ireland.
