Thread Name: New Trad Music Internet Radio Station
Subject: New Trad Music Internet Radio Station
I have just uploaded an Internet radio station which should interest a lot of people on this site. It is called Worlds Of Trad and it features traditional folk, ethnic, world, roots, blues, old time country and even some early jazz. In short it covers traditional music from absolutely everywhere. It is hosted by Live 365 Internet Radio (

The station will be showcasing the down-home music and song traditions of people from all over the world, although, since I'm relying on my own collection, there's a heavy bias towards Britain, Ireland and the USA. The programme is three hours long and it is on a continuous loop. Listening is free, although there are occasional adverts. Subscribers to Live365 can avoid these.

The following link should take you straight to the station, although you may need to download the free Live365 player before you can hear anything;

If that doesn't work key in and then search for Worlds Of Trad.

All being well, I'll be uploading a new programme on the first Wednesday of every month, so the next upload will be Wednesday October 4th.

I'll also be welcoming requests as long I've got them and as long as they fit in with the station ethos. Please send any you have to .

There's more information at the station site, and I will shortly be developing a website of my own to post playlists, artist biogs, song translations etc. In the meantime, I hope nobody minds if I post the present playlist here.

Happy listening.
