Country music like you've never heard it before. Once upon a time…the folklorists and cultural anthropologists used to denounce (diss) singers like Joan Baez and the Kingston Trio as being “Citybilly,” inauthentic for not learning the songs they sang via oral tradition…but times had changed…we weren’t learning songs only through transmission from one generation to the next in rural context, i.e. Hillbilly, but were now immersed in a new way to learn and transmit the lore and legacy of the American vernacular, through recordings and radio, the new aural tradition. This, the migration of rural folk music to urban environs birthed Citybilly, the radio show. Every show you'll hear the new mixed with the old -- and always something from one of Citybilly's "regulars," Patsy Cline, Lefty Frizzell, Merle Haggard, Emmylou Harris and Bob Dylan.
