New Rancho Radio Set

RR05

I uploaded a brand new playlist to Rancho Radio tonight. Unlike the last 3 sets, which were picked at random from our huge song library, I hand picked this one. Lots of great alt. country, with a little extra southern rock added to the mix this week.

Rancho Radio has moved up to the 15th most popular station in the Americana genre on Live365. Please give it a listen and tell your friends about it. You’ll hear some great music that you simply can’t get anywhere else.

Rancho Radio Cracks Top 20

In a little over 2 months since we relaunched Rancho Radio, it has moved steadily up the charts. Yesterday it cracked the Top 20, becoming the 20th most popular Americana station in the Live365 family.

Americana is a broad category, covering basic Americana, bluegrass, folk, alternative country and more. Since I wrote the script that selects the weekly playlist automatically out of our 26,000 song library, the number of listeners has grown significantly. My guess is that is because we are playing a lot of deep album cuts from our extensive alternative country catalog.

Give Rancho Radio a listen. If you like it, tell your friends about it. We’d love to see it move up the number 1!

Update:  Rancho Radio is now Newsome.fm.

New Rancho Radio Set

RR05

For the second week in a row, I picked the songs for this week’s playlist at random from our alt. country library. Last week, I was really pleased with the mix. I heard a bunch of good cuts that I wouldn’t have thought to add had I done the set manually. I also received a good bit of positive feedback from listeners. So, once again, a new random set from our 26,000 song library.

Rancho Radio Rocks

RR05

I uploaded a completely new playlist to Rancho Radio tonight. About 16 hours worth of great Alt. Country, Americana and Classic Rock.

Consistent with the recent trend, this set rocks a little more than some of the older ones. There are a few Allman Brothers cuts as well as some other southern boogie. There’s also the usual supply of great alternative country.
