2RRR

The Best of 2017

THE BEST OF 2017

For the first time in the 21 year history of the Cosmic Cowboy Cafe I found it impossible to separate two albums for the #1 spot so this year I have declared a tie:
= #1 Across The Wide - "Records And Bottles"
= #1 The Reeves Brothers "King Of County Music"
Both these albums are independent releases with outstanding original songs, great vocal , playing and production.
Real country music is alive and well if you know where to look.
In this case Georgia and Nevada.
This is the second release for both groups and their first ones were equally as impressive.

New Program Director at 2RRR

At 2RRR's AGM last Monday I was appointed  program director .

The gig involves  helping create and maintain a diverse program schedule, overseeing the quality of the station's programming and maintaining regulatory compliance as well as liaising with presenters at the station.

The PD is also the guy that most people love to hate at the station  - I was told this AFTER I accepted the position.

Guess I'll just have to wait and see !







Friday Drive on 2RRR to remain Country

The Board of 2RRR has reversed its decision to cancel country music on Friday Drive as part of programming grid changes.

There was a massive listener backlash to the decision which would have ended a 25 year history of country music  between 5.00pm - 7.00pm on Fridays.
.
Thank you to everyone who took the time and effort to email and phone the station to complain about losing The Cosmic Cowboy Cafe on your Friday drive home.



New timeslot from 10th Nov - Saturday 8.00-10.00am

The Cosmic Cowboy Cafe will  be repeated on Saturday 8.00-10.00am for the next five weeks.

This will become become the show's new permanent timeslot from 10th November

The management of the station have decided to change the Friday Drive slot that I
now occupy to a more youth oriented format.

The 5.00-7.00pm timeslot on 2RRR has a been country music destination for over 25 years.

Thank you to everyone who has contacted the station management office@2rrr.org.au with your opinions about this move.
