Click hear to listen in to the live stream Tuesdays, 6pm to 8pm (WST)


to GrassRoots Radio, tune in and explore Bluegrass, Folk, Roots, Americana, Alt. Country and Ol' Timey music with me each week, I broadcast from the studios of 100.9fm Albany Community Radio, in the Great Southern region of Western Australia.


I hope to bring something new for everyone, along with touring news and dates, and not just locally, if the artists in our focus are touring anywhere, you'll hear about it here.

I'm not saying mind, that I'm an all knowing oracle, I'm just sharing my passion and my new discoveries with you all...


I'd also love to hear from you, either flick an email my way or check us out on Facebook.  

Listening in...

To listen you have 3 options, firstly there's 100.9fm in the Great Southern region of WA, if you're further out than that, turn your browser to

for live streaming, but if our hours are awkward, you can find each show as a podcast to play from here, just find the link at the top of the page...


Tune in each week on Tuesdays, 6 - 8pm


For my audience not in Australia, my time zone is UTC + 8 hours, so midday London means 8pm for me, for US central time it's even easier, a straight 12 hours difference.



Check out my AMRAP profile folks, promoting up and coming Aussie artists, working to get the lesser known bands and acts air-time on Aussie radio.

You will find playlists from each show up there, with some info on each track and artist.

About me

My name is Samele and I've been listening to all sorts of music over the years, but nothing has grabbed me like ol' timey music, it ties with the music my mum played when I was a little 'un, artists like Bert Jansch, Donovon, Joan Baez and my dad's Bob Dylan collection.

My explorations of all things Bluegrass and Folk has led me to some very interesting bands and sounds, and I hate hogging it all to myself so I share it with you all on the radio.
