Exclusively Streaming on TuneIn: Boss Radio 66 Presents Country A-Go-Go Featuring Tom Hanks’ Private Collection of Classic Country Albums
New Commercial-Free Station Featuring Deep Cuts from Classic Country Artists of the 50s, 60s and 70s debuts week of Hank Williams’ 100th Birthday
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — TuneIn, the world’s leading live-streaming audio service, today announced the launch of Country A-Go-Go, the second radio station from the team behind Boss Radio 66, Tom Hanks and Debbie Daughtry. The duo are releasing their personal collection of classic country albums to listeners around the globe to help them discover hidden gems from country legends and the talented artists who never got much radio airplay in their time.
Country A-Go-Go pays homage to country music’s roots featuring deep cuts from legends like Hank Williams, Jean Shepard, Tammy Wynette and George Jones to undiscovered artists of the 50s, 60s and 70s whose influence can still be found in today’s hits. The station captures the essence of those generations through its carefully curated playlist – even featuring vintage audio ads to take listeners on a journey through time.
Listeners will hear the changing tides of American culture over the course of three decades through a uniquely country perspective. Country A-Go-Go presents a voice of the people many have never heard before.
To make this station a reality Hanks and Daughtry scoured record bins around the country and turned to their own personal record collections, digitizing over 3,500 vinyl records of classic country. The station brings these classic hits out of the archives to showcase the music created during its greatest era that continues to impact the music still playing on the radio today.
“This is the music that I grew up with, and still influences the music that I love to this day,” said Daughtry. “The new generation of country music artists are amazing. The genre is having a huge comeback right now. Just take a listen to Garth’s new station, The Big 615! Country A-Go-Go reconnects listeners with country music’s origins to hear the legends that gave country its soul. This station is for any country music fan that wants to hear great music from a very influential time in history.”
The commercial-free station makes its debut on TuneIn during the week of Hank Williams’ 100th Birthday, with special programming that celebrates this important event in music history with some deep-cut recordings of the country legend.
Country A-Go-Go is the latest of several collaborations planned between Hanks and Daughtry. The first of which was Boss Radio 66, a station dedicated to classic rock 45s from the 50s, 60s and 70s.
