Like Bluegrass?

This is what it's really all about: The trickle-down theory applies just about everywhere. Download music and streaming broadcasts first brought contemporary rock and hip-hop to the masses. Eventually, most other forms of music also started to pop up online. And Podcasts bring just about every kind of downloadable programming online. I knew it was all still evolving when I discovered a Bluegrass streaming broadcast now available. The Birthplace of Country Music Alliance has created a compilation of early country music history -- often called bluegrass -- as a way of archiving this unique piece of American music. I particularly like some of the traditional Appalachian style that includes lots of banjos. (Windows Media Player required and donations are welcome!)
