A Treat For Your Ears: Bluegrass Podcast with Caroline Wright and Mike Kear

Updated: Feb 28, 2023

The Bluegrass Today Weekly Top 20 Countdown is a podcast hosted by Mike Kear in Australia and Caroline Wright in Hawai‘i.

Each week they compile a Top 20 Countdown program from the Bluegrass Today radio airplay chart, and then they play each song in its entirety from Number 20, all the way to Number 1, just like Casey Kasem used to do it! To keep things spicy, they talk a little bit about the world's most interesting bluegrass news for the week. And they have all KINDS of intriguing segments designed to amuse, amaze, engage, and delight you.

Check out Freshly Made Jams, Bizarregrass, Pickin’ On The Planet, Mike & Caroline’s Big Bluegrass Time Machine, Tiny Bluegrass History Lesson, and MORE!

A new episode is published every Sunday morning! Just search or ask for the Bluegrass Today Weekly Top 20 Countdown on iHeart radio, Apple/iTunes, Amazon Music, Player FM, Audible, or wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts.

You can also find it at . OR, download the Podomatic app for your iPhone, Android, or tablet, follow the Countdown there, and you’ll never miss an episode. You can even download episodes to listen to them offline – great for commuting, working out, hiking!
