Marjory and I present Doug’s Big Country on Somerset’s 10 Radio,105.3fm www.10radio.org and have been since February 2008.
The show is broadcast every Wednesday afternoon between 2 pm and 4 pm and repeated every Sunday afternoon between 4 pm and 6 pm. You can also hear the show anytime by clicking on the show’s poster for Listen Again.
The music we both feature is as diverse and interesting as we can make it with a wide range of country music from traditional to new country, to bluegrass, to Americana, Cajun, Tex-Mex, country rock and alternative country. We also like to feature local artists and studio guests with live acoustic sets from local musicians. We go to a lot of live music and like to reflect that in the music we play. I select the tracks blending each with the next as seamlessly as possible while Marjory selects an album of the week giving us a more in-depth look at the featured artist and also gives out local and national gigs.
You can contact the show by emailing me at email@example.com or check the show out on FaceBook or Twitter @Doug Parish1.
