KOSU adds more folk and country music to Sunday night lineup
Starting Sunday, July 3, KOSU and The Spy will offer listeners a revised broadcast schedule for Sunday nights. No other day or night of the schedule will be affected.
In March, to be with Krista Tippett announced that it would be ending its nearly two decades as a weekly radio show. The show, which features conversations about spirituality, science and the spaces in between, will continue as a seasonal podcast. Its last episode will air on Sunday, June 26 at 5 p.m.
To fill On Being’s hole in the program, folk alley – which features traditional and contemporary folk, Americana and roots music – will run for two hours on KOSU, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The Spy will also host a new show on its airwaves.
Far from home is an hour-long leap into the ever-widening landscape of country music, hosted by Oklahoma musician Tim Buchanan.
Hear old favorites, origins and offshoots, regional obscurities, vinyl picks, old and new honky-tonks sung by lone singers from just about anywhere – all with bigger hearts than the world we live in.
Listeners can expect to hear Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Terry Allen, Summer Dean, Linda Martell, Guy Clark and many more on the show.
The revival of the juke jointhosted by Chris El Bandito, will switch to a new time at 10 p.m. Chris has joined the show as last Halloween’s host and will continue to entertain listeners with rockabilly, rhythm and blues, psychobilly and more.
Until recently, this 10 p.m. time slot was occupied by the show B-sides with longtime Spy host Clayton Bahr deciding to pull the show. We will always have the memes.
The new schedule comes into effect from Sunday, July 3.
We hope you enjoy the new range and, as always, we welcome your feedback. Thank you for listening and supporting KOSU!
