The Arctic Cactus Hour
Saturday at 6:00pm
Americana is contemporary music that incorporates elements of various American roots music styles, including country, roots-rock, folk, bluegrass, R&B and blues, resulting in a distinctive roots-oriented sound that lives in a world apart from the pure forms of the genres upon which it may draw. While acoustic instruments are often present and vital, Americana also often uses a full electric band.
The Arctic Cactus Hour was developed and hosted for over 20 years on KNBA by Jim Stratton and Eric Smith. Today the program is hosted by a variety of volunteer and staff programmers.
