DJ Profile
contemporary bluegrass music online from Frank's Americana on Live365 Internet Radio
DJ: Frank
Location: Danbury, CT

An Irish Italian Brooklyn Cowboy, born in the USA. Nurtured in the 50's, raised in the 60's, and made aware in the 70's. Here we are in the 21st Century - but I'm still "On the Bus" and "Truckin". I discovered bluegrass through the Grateful Dead - and it has been "A long strange trip". A writer of songs and a singer of stories. I was raised in Brooklyn, NY and like Mr Kotter, "dreamed of my ticket out". I moved to the suburbs of Wash, DC, "the bluegrass capitol of the world", where I got my first real job, raised my family and played lots of bluegrass. I currently reside in the green hills of southwestern Conneticut. Visit my website and download my original material at:
