Friday EARLY edition: great day of music on TV (some of it WEB SIMULCAST!) June 26 2020

Much more still to come in a big follow-up edition, with WEEKEND FESTIVALS and more. But music on TV starts early on Fridays, so we will, too. Those of you not in L.A. can watch everything broadcast by KLCS as a web simulcast, and much of it can be pulled from their archive for a few days.

Beyond that? If your cable/satellite package lacks RFD-TV, you are missing out!


Friday, June 26


Today's Friday music on tv / 
some of it web simulcast

Fridays are the day / night for RFD and for Los Angeles PBS station KLCS to air their abundance of regularly-scheduled music performance programming. Both are heavy on roots music, so being stuck at home on any Friday ain't all that bad, if you have a Tee-Vee or web access with the right package.

♪ The ACOUSTIC AMERICANA MUSIC GUIDE endeavors to bring you NEWS – and views of interest to artists everywhere – more specifically to musicians and the creative community and music makers -- and fans of acoustic and Folk-Americana music. That includes both traditional and innovative forms. From the deepest roots to today’s acoustic renaissance, that’s our beat. We provide a wealth of resources, including a HUGE catalog of acoustic-friendly venues (now undergoing a major update), and inside info on FESTIVALS and select performances in Southern California in venues from the monumentally large to the intimately small and cozy. We cover workshops, conferences, and other events for artists and folks in the music industry, and all kinds o’ things in the world of acoustic and Americana and accessible classical music. From washtub bass to musical spoons to oboe to viola to banjo to squeezebox, from Djangostyle to new-fangled-old-time string band music, from sweet Cajun fiddle to bluegrass and pre-bluegrass Appalachian mountain music to all the swamp water roots of the blues and the bright lights of where the music is headed now.
The Acoustic Americana Music Guide. Thanks for sittin' a spell. The cyber porch'll be here anytime you come back from the road.

We'll be back again soon with music news and more "News of the Non-Trumpcentric Universe." (c)

Til we catch ya again on the flip side 
in this new decade...
as Buford the Wonder Dog looks on 
and in our best Kathy Baker
"Hee Haw" voice: "THAT's all!"
