Wowza! From zero to 34 in just six months!

B.B. King
I had hopes but I could never have imagined this.

In the six months since The Big Fat Wide Americana Hour was launched, it’s gone from nothing to a show that’s drawn listeners in 34 countries.

I wanted to commemorate the milestone – and do something that might bring the same kind of luck over the next six months, too.

Bonnie Raitt
Tune in and you'll see! As always, the show's at

To our fans around the world, a huge thank you.

And remember – turn it up. I mean, crank it!

A secret songwriter – and musical variety

OK, pop quiz: What huge 1986 hit by an all-girl group was secretly written by Prince under a pseudonym?

Not exactly an onerous chore. The show – with Rosanne Cash, Rodney Crowell, Stevie Wonder, Guy Clark and so many others – might just be the most fun you have in one hour all week long.

See you there.

And remember – turn it up. I mean, crank it!
