DJ Profile
honky tonk music online from Honky Tonk Heaven on Live365 Internet Radio
DJ: ColoradoBen
Location: Fort Collins, CO

I play upright and electric bass in a variety of honky tonk, rockabilly and bluegrass bands around Colorado and the Rocky Mountain region, and I run Honky Tonk Heaven, a radio station that plays the best honky tonk/hard country of the past 60 years.
Favorite Artists

Merle Haggard
In my opinion, one of the greatest American musical artists. Has no peer as a songwriter, singer, musician and bandleader.

Johnny Paycheck
Paycheck's crazy '60s recordings for the Little Darlin' label define the outer edge of adventurous honky tonk.

Jimmy Martin
The King of Bluegrass. One of the greatest country-style singers.

Los Lobos
My favorite rock band. Great singers, songwriters and musicians. David Hidalgo should be a lot more famous than he is.

Porter Wagoner
Possibly the weirdest person ever to have been a mainstream country music star.

Favorite Broadcasters

Cool selection of classic country and modern indie country that sounds classic.

All trucking music, all the time. Sounds like an AM radio on Wolf Creek Pass.

Live365’s 1 rated rockabilly show.

Like the man says -- kick-ass classic and modern honky tonk and a little bluegrass.

I don’t know much about this guy, but he has a ridiculously deep library of classic country tracks.
