Refreshingly relaxed, knowledgeable and friendly; presenting some of the best music you've never heard, including an eclectic mix of exciting new tracks featuring the best of Americana, alternative country, indie, world, nu-folk and blues. As someone said to Bob in New Orleans recently - "music is all around, all you have to do is listen". This could be the motto of the show.
Each week you'll hear new singles and albums and classics from the Rock Date Diary alongside a live session. This week's guests are the Bowmans - playing live and talking about their experiences in their native Iowa, their new home in New York and touring across the world.
