Town and Country, Aotearoa

“Town & Country Aotearoa” has been hosted for 25 years by Eddie O’Strange

Live on air from 9 – 11pm every Monday on Wellington Access Radio, 106.1 FM, Eddie takes a country road through Kiwiana, Americana, folk, country, bluegrass, Appalachian, and western swing. Music from the early 1920s to present day.

The show is repeated from Friday midnight until 2am Saturday.

Town & Country is a late night revelation of traditionally-based pearls (and swines) from the 19th century right on through to 21st century quirk. A significant percentage of the imported recordings are exclusive to Town & Country.


The programme is followed by an hour of   “The Best of Bluegrass” hosted by Trevor Ruffell
