Humour - some of the jokes we're famous for ...

Ok, so the show is famous for telling dumb 'dad' jokes and groaners.  I'd have stopped doing it years ago except people keep writing and saying they love it.    There are thousands of them here on this site - all g-rated and family friendly,     you could tell them all to your granny.    Well ok she'll probably clock you with a pan or a wooden spoon before you get to the end but you could IN THEORY!    There's a goodly selection of one liners in the "sayings" section and the rest are all in categories so you can steal the ones you want easily.      

Joke Of The Week

The next time your wife gets angry, drape a towel over her shoulders like a cape and exclaim 'Now you are SUPER ANGRY!!" Maybe she'll laugh., Maybe you'll die.

Plenty more jokes where that came from right here ....

How to listen

How to listen to the show - where and what times?   
The show goes to air in Sydney live for 5 hours,  beginning at 10pm Fridays,  Sydney time,  which is 8am US Eastern Daylight Savings Time and 12 noon GMT.     You can find the show by going to the station's web site at Hawkesbury Radio or via the TuneIn site.  They also have an app for mobile devices you can download from the App store or Google shop.  

There is also a re-broadcast several times a week in Washington DC on Bluegrasscountry.,org.  Currently the show times are 10am Sundays (US Eastern Time)  and 7pm Tuesdays (US Eastern time) 

On Music from Foggy Hollow you'll hear the latest bluegrass - many songs not even released yet.     

Our playlists - what's on the show

I publish the playlist on this site as the show progresses in Sydney.   You can find the current playlist in several ways,  including just click on the link above,  or go to the playlist archives and you can see what was played on any show all the way back to the first show this century!!       

It's not a commercial thing - we dont get any money out of it .   it's just done as a service because in many parts of the world, including Australia and New Zealand bluegrass is pretty hard to find in the stores.    Just click on a  song you like and in most cases you'll be taken to a web site where you can buy downloads or the physical CD.  It's usually the record label site or the artist's own web site. 

You can also use these links to tell the artists that you like the song and that you heard it on Music from Foggy Hollow.     You have no idea what a big boost that is to the artists and record labels - when listeners tell them they enjoyed the songs.
