President George Fair best describes the innovative Classic Heartland internet radio station:
Classic Heartland's goal is to remind the world that Country and Western truly are two distinct genres of music that coexist and are interwoven in harmony. Broadcasting live from Branson, Missouri 24-hours-a-day, we promise our listeners a unique blend of Country Classics with the best of Classic and Contemporary Western music. Bluegrass music is also offered at various times.
Classic Heartland is a live Internet radio station with its own programs and on-air hosts. Our audio streams reach approximately 150,000 listeners who spend an average of 75,000 hours listening each month. Although limited budget resources require that the station be mostly operated by computer automation, Classic Heartland promises that our daily playlists feature music that is hand-picked by folks who know and love the genres. Two of our weekly programs focus on Cowboy music and poetry: "Around The Campfire" with Marvin O'Dell and cowboy singer/songwriter and radio host Ken Overcast's "The Cowboy Show".
Sunday mornings are all about Gospel music. Theresa O'Dell hosts "Near to the Heart," a program that features Country, Western and Bluegrass gospel and inspirational songs.
It costs thousands of dollars each year to keep Classic Heartland on the air. The biggest expenses in Internet broadcasting include data bandwidth fees and royalty payments. We are funded by two sources: our listeners and a few sponsors. It is our plea to those who cherish Country and Western music to see to it that not only their spurs jingle when we pass around the hat. We really need your help to keep this radio station growing. Any donation will be very helpful.
We hope you will enjoy listening to Classic Heartland and that our blend of Country and Western music will keep you and your pards comin' back for more!
