Freewheelin' with Jackson Buck - Every Wednesday afternoon (2:00-4:00).

Jackson Buck holds court every Wednesday afternoons (2:00-4:00) on KFAI with his roots-rock show Freewheelin'. Tune in as Freewheelin’ delivers a free-flowing roots musical journey through the years of recorded history featuring the sounds of Americana, rockabilly, blues, alt-country, rock & roll, country swing, folk, Cajun & zydeco, old-time, and a whole bunch of other crapola.

No matter how it's labeled, this great music all falls under the roots umbrella. Jackson not only plays historical tracks from days gone by, but weaves the past into the present by including modern interpreters of the roots genre.

Live performances, interviews, information, and lots of great rootsy music…..all on Freewheelin’
