"The KingPup Radio Show is on the air...."
This is how musicians Phil & Gaye Johnson greet their worldwide audience
"each and every hour of each and every day" as program hosts of America's
newest "roots music" radio program, The KingPup Radio Show - Small Time Opry.
The KingPup Radio Show
blends tongue in cheek humor and live
acoustic country music performances into fast-paced 15 and 30
minute shows that recall vintage Grand Ole Opry broadcasts.
"Its old-time radio meets high tech."
We emphasize the tradition of local country music radio programs
that flourished throughout rural America during the 20's 30's and 40's.
These regional versions of the national "barn dance" type programs were the
life blood of Country music during this time and always presented the very
best of local / regional artists, many of whom used their popularity on
these smaller programs to launch successful professional entertainment careers.
We present The KingPup Radio Show
as a modern day version of the local
"opry style" radio transcriptions. We digitally record performances at venues acroass the Southeast and
distribute to our radio affiliate stations
throughout the world on CD masters.
Programs are supplied in either a 15 minute or a 30 minute format.
