DIAL GLOBAL is debuting a brand new show, “COUNTRY GOLD WITH RANDY OWEN,” a four-hour music intensive show hosted by the lead vocalist of the group ALABAMA. COUNTRY GOLD will feature 13 songs per hour and highlight music from the 1970s to mid-90s. Artists such as RANDY TRAVIS, MERLE HAGGARD, JOHNNY CASH, REBA McENTIRE, ALAN JACKSON, VINCE GILL, WAYLON JENNINGS, CLINT BLACK and many more will be featured.
“I’m looking forward to visiting with the fans and playing some of my favorite songs and the greatest songs ever recorded,” said OWENS. “Hosting COUNTRY GOLD is going to be fun and exciting for me. I hope listeners request songs they want to hear and feel a personal connection with my show.”
DIAL GLOBAL VP/Programming JOHN PAUL said, “COUNTRY GOLD is designed for Mainstream and Classic Country stations. It’s the only place to hear those ‘lost’ Country music stars from 1980-1995 that rarely get played on Country radio. Yet listeners still love that music. So this is a specialty show, a destination for fans to hear those classics.”
For info on the show that debuts the weekend of JULY 14th-15th, call (212) 419-2926 or e-mail email@example.com.
The new COUNTRY GOLD replaces COUNTRY GOLD and RICK JACKSON’s HALL OF FAME programs.
