Hardly, Strictly

On Thu from 8:30 am EST to 10:30 am EST
With: Fred

New Day and Time!

Thursdays 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM

Bluegrass, Americana, Roots, Jamgrass, Acoustic and Small “c” country music: you name it!

It’s a big tent at Hardly Strictly: Fred starts from bluegrass but doesn’t stop there.

Thanks for listening to the show (Hardly Strictly No. 192) in its new time slot.

Some old, some new this week. A clip from the Rolling Thunder Revue (Dylan, Baez, Elliot, Mick Ronson) at the Bangor Auditorium in November 1975.

A couple of mashups showing the pervasive effect of three chord-progression: Michael Stanley (Sweet Jane/ Witchi Tae To) and Twiddle (!) (Glycerine/No Woman, No Cry/ Farmhouse and Wagon Wheel). Loads of bluegrass and a sweet tune from The Browns. Also, Bob Wills (“Kick It Off Leon”)

Please listen online or join me live next week.


Please check out the Spinitron playlist, The Hardly Strictly Facebook page and the archives
