Vintage Country is a program for lovers of classic country music, both American and Australian and including all genre of country be it traditional, cajun, bluegrass or Aussie bush band. As in wine, there are good vintages and some not so good. The songs we play are those that stand, or will stand, the test of time, be they from ages past or from the present.
