Roots & Twang / Karen Anderson

Roots & Twang, airing Fridays from 3-5pm, is your weekly dose of Country, Roots and Americana music hosted by Karen Anderson, the “Truck Driver’s Daughter.”  Karen brings a diverse mix of artists you won’t hear on commercial Country radio stations, and breaks the stereotypes of the genre with her eclectic musical selections. Some listeners say, “It’s the country show for people who don’t like country.” Tune in on Fridays from 3:00 to 5:00 pm and discover the country music lover in your soul!

“This is my dad Charlie Anderson in 1972 with the steel delivery truck that he loved to drive. I grew up listening to him singing Okie From Muskogee and A Boy Named Sue, among others, and country music just got into my soul. When I was a teenager, I rebelled against the twang and ventured off into the worlds of punk, new wave and reggae. Then in 1981, while working as a clerk at Tower Records, I snapped up a copy of Elvis Costello’s newly released Almost Blue, and the country torch was reignited to burn brighter than ever.” Email Karen.
