KOSU adds more folk, country music to Sunday night lineup

Phil Shockley

Beginning Sunday, July 3, KOSU and The Spy will bring listeners a revised on-air schedule for Sunday evenings. No other days or nights on the schedule will be affected.

In March, On Being with Krista Tippett announced it would end its nearly two-decade run as a weekly radio program. The show, which features conversations about spirituality, science and the spaces in between, will continue as a season podcast. Its last episode will air Sunday, June 26 at 5 p.m.

To fill On Being's hole in the schedule, Folk Alley — which features traditional and contemporary folk, Americana and roots music — will expand to two hours on KOSU, from 5 to 7 p.m.

The Spy will also welcome a new show to its airwaves.

Far From Home is an hour-long leap into the ever-broadening landscape of country music, hosted by Oklahoma musician Tim Buchanan.

Hear old favorites, origins and offshoots, regional obscurities, vinyl selections, honky-tonk old and new sung by lonesome singers from just about anywhere — all with hearts bigger than the world we’re living in.

Listeners can expect to hear the likes of Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Terry Allen, Summer Dean, Linda Martell, Guy Clark and more on the show.

Juke Joint Revival, hosted by Chris El Bandito, will move to a new time at 10 p.m. Chris joined the show as host last Halloween, and will continue to entertain listeners with rockabillity, rhythm and blues, psychobilly and more.

Until recently, that 10 p.m. time slot was filled by the show B-Sides with longtime Spy host Clayton Bahr, who has decided to retire the show. We'll always have the memes.

The new schedule goes into effect beginning Sunday, July 3.

We hope you'll enjoy the new lineup and, as always, we welcome your feedback. Thank you for listening to and supporting KOSU!
