ONLINE RADIO & MP3 SITES
OLD Time Music Hour. - This is a link to Bill Smedley's now renowned Old Time Music Hour which, since it started some 3 years ago, is now regularly listened to in over 50 countries by over 80,000 listeners on a weekly basis due to its accessibility via Colm Daly's Padlet. I only got involved in the first place because of its brilliant listening appeal and its professional quality in production and delivery by its founder Bill Smedley. It not only offers an informed archive with 140 hrs of listening, but also provides free promotion to current players and performers promoting their CDs & tours etc., especially useful in these lean times.
