DJ Profile
classic country music online from Country Shufflemania on Live365 Internet Radio
DJ: Michael Ray
Location: Austin, TX

AIM: Shufflemania
I'm a former Country deejay and program director from back in the day when Country Music was still COUNTRY. Believe it or not, the Country Shuffle is still alive and flourishing down in my neck of the woods, and I wanted the rest of the world to have the opportunity to get into the music I've always loved. And by the way, requests are welcome!

The best Country vocalist of today, and one of the best of all time. Also an accomplished songwriter and producer.

Curtis Potter - Walking on New Grass
The best album of 2003. Combines shuffles, Western Swing and other great traditional Country numbers.

Another great 2003 release that contains the same elements of Walking on New Grass. Bobby is a super musician and a fine vocalist.
