  1. Would there be some possibility that BGC and WMRA in the home of Bluegrass in the Shenandoah Valley could work toward some partnership?? If so, someone from the Foundation could contact Al Bartholet, the WMRA Exec Dir.

  2. If someone organizes a concert to benefit Bluegrass Country our band “Bluestone” would be interested in playing. We applaud your efforts to promote this worthwhile station and would like to help.

      Thanks Carroll. I’ll pass this on the Fund raising team that’s organizing the benefit concert.

    Thank you for your efforts. Our family would be heartbroken to lose Bluegrass Country, especially Americana Breakdown and the Trail Ride with Texas Fred “Yeah you’re right” Carter.

    I cannot adequately express my appreciation for your group’s stepping up and submitting the application to keep Bluegrass Country on the air! I stream it here in Michigan at least three times a week (love the Trail Ride!). I will make a contribution to your Foundation online and will commit to an annual contribution to help keep this good thing going. Thank you!

    I am moving back to the DC area after having been gone for nearly 30 years. When I left, WAMU was still airing Jerry Gray’s bluegrass show, not coincidently called “Bluegrass Country” in drive time. WAMU’s internet version of Bluegrass Country has kept me connected to my DC Bluegrass roots. Frightening to think it’s so close to disappearing for good! Best of luck in your efforts!

    I am a bluegrass aficionado in the Netherlands, Europe, and I am happy to donate in support of your bid for WAMU, which is easily my favorite radio station on the internet. Keep on streaming that great music to the Netherlands.

    Hello there, how did your meeting with WAMU go (on November 7)? Is there still hope? That would be a tremendous highlight for me (at least one today…)
    Kind regards, Jochen (a huge BC fan from Switzerland)

  3. Jerad – We’re still accepting donations. Also…

    The transition has been postponed until February 6, 2017 because there were too many outstanding issues and details for completing the transfer while AU is shut down over the in December.

    Jeff,
    I have been a listener of “Stained Glass Bluegrass” since the early 70’s when I lived in southern Maryland. I am a huge fan of bluegrass music, particularly bluegrass gospel. I left the DC area for a short stint in Winston Salem, NC, before moving to the Tampa Bay area of FL.
    I have continually listened to the program over the years and up until a month ago, had no problems hooking up; now for some reason my the HD stream has ceased to work. I thought there might be a problem with the computer so I had a tech look at it…he found no problem on my end. Can you offer me a solution? I miss my Sunday morning broadcast.
