Tune in every Saturday morning from 6:30 til 8am for stories and music from the early roots of American Country, Bluegrass and Blues music. We'll hear about the famous acts and the not so famous. From the Carter Family, Uncle Dave Macon and the Monroe Brothers to the less-heard sounds of Kelly Harrell, Washington Phillips, and the Golden Melody Boys. Jug bands, string bands, shape note singers, and even classic country and bluegrass artists from the 50s and 60s are all likely guests to round out the show and start your weekend right. Leave a message or request on our Facebook page (and give us a thumbs up!).

WTJU Streaming Audio: Listen!
Ogg Vorbis: The easiest way to listen to one of our vorbis streams is to use a vorbis-ready web browser such as Firefox (version 3.5 or later) or Google Chrome. If you see an audio player control below, give that a try. Otherwise, click the stream link to launch your preferred audio application or plug-in.
Aside from a browser upgrade, there are several media players and player plug-ins that can play this open, high-quality streaming format. Among this group, we recommend the VLC cross-platform player. If you own an Android device, try TuneIn, which is available for iPhone, Blackberry, Palm and Windows Phone as well. You can read more about ogg vorbis and media players, or write the webmaster if you have questions or problems.
