Texas Radio Shortwave presents an hour of Red Dirt music, celebrating music from the red dirt country of North Texas.
This branch of country music takes its name from the red dirt of central, southern, and western Oklahoma, where it originated. The music has worked its way south of the Red River and is an accepted part of the Texas music scene.
There’s lots of music out there by artists you’ve heard of, but you won’t hear any of those today. The 14 artists on the playlist aren’t well known, but their music’s every bit as good as from the big stars. How many of you have heard of Walt Wilkins & The Mysteriqueros, Kevin Fowler, Eleven Hundred Springs, or Micky & The Motorcars?
We have a special eQSL for accurate, detailed reception reports covering at least 20 minutes of the program. You must include song titles and the approximate text of announcements and the times they aired, a signal quality report (SINPO or SIO), info on your receiver and antenna, and comments on what you heard so we can improve our programs.
If you don’t include that last item — just don’t say something like “I liked your program” ‘cause that doesn’t cut it — don’t bother to send us a report because you won’t receive a verification!
The email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
P.S. Immediately prior to the Red Dirt salute, WRMI airs TRSW Special: Songs About Texas #2 -The Lost Program, which has its own eQSL.
