• Sunday 2:30-4pm

Tune in every Sunday from 2:30 to 4 pm for the finest in traditional and contemporary bluegrass; old time music and real country on Coop Radio’s ‘In the Pines’. 

Several programmers each possessing unique tastes and passionate opinions present a compelling mix of vintage and contemporary recordings. From the early Opry days through the ‘dim lights, thick smoke, and loud, loud music’ of honkytonk, western swing, alt country (whatever that is). T; and then we throw in all manner of bluegrass and old time music  and you're right where we want you ... In The Pines!

The show usually includes a weekly calendar of related LIVE events: local, regional and global, often with musical previews and some very good surprises featuring Canadian and local musicians. 

There is a weekly rotation that goes something like this:

  • 1st Sunday – Kathleen Nisbet
  • 2nd Sunday – Paul Norton & Sue Malcolm
  • 3rd Sunday – Rob McGregor
  • 4th Sunday – Jim Burnett - AKA The Stern Old Bachelor
  • 5th Sunday – A Surprise!

Tune in each and every week to see what’s happening.   Like us on Facebook. What’s not to like?  And check out our videos!
