Welcome to the Crossroads of Americana with Brownsburg’s own John Rabold. For 30 years, J.R. had a vision of doing a show that brought country music and rock music together. But it could not be just anything, it was a sound. But life happens, and the dream had to wait.
On one of many road trips J.R. takes, he heard a radio show while driving through North Carolina in 2017. John was inspired. This was EXACTLY the format he had in his head for YEARS! He knew, one day, he needed to bring Cosmic American Music to Indiana.
Here, weekly, you will hear Traditional, Outlaw and Alt-country, country influenced rock, and Folk. What current top 40 country does, J.R. does the opposite.
Gram Parsons to Johnny Cash, The Byrds to The New Riders of the Purple Sage, Buck Owens to The Jayhawks, Steve Earle to k.d. lang, John Hiatt to the Eagles, you get the idea. And you will hear artists from right here in Indiana as well, the real Crossroads of America.
Three hours of Crossroads of Americana airs Saturday nights beginning at 7:00 pm on 98.9 FM WYRZ and online at WYRZ.org.
