'The Country Oldies Show' Celebrates 20 Years

ENVISION NETWORKS' "THE COUNTRY OLDIES SHOW" will celebrate its 20-year milestone with a special edition of the program, which will be available to all stations for free and broadcast on affiliate stations the week of JULY 21st.
"Ever since I grew up in INDIANA, I was around Country music," said "THE COUNTRY OLDIES SHOW" host STEVE WARREN. "Over the years, I've worked as a DJ at a dozen Country stations. As the Country music artists started getting younger, I felt that it was important to never let go of the heritage artists. So In 1994, in a sea of radio stations playing 'Hot,' 'Young' or 'New' Country, the folks at WYNY in NEW YORK decided that putting an Oldies show on SUNDAY couldn’t hurt. The show quickly became one of the top-rated weekend time slots. After WYNY, we distributed the show to a few other stations, and in the blink of an eye, here we are today, 20 years later, and our radio audiences have stuck with us all the way. They made the show a success. I just play the music."
The special three-hour broadcast will revisit some of the classic songs that listeners have grown to love over the years, and also feature stories from WILLIE NELSON, JANIE FRICKE, THE OAK RIDGE BOYS, STEVE WARINER and more.
