Esteesee: The Folk Radio Treasure Hunt - Monday 17th August to Friday 28th August

Independent folk shows have been a huge support to me over the past two years. Perhaps it's having a 3 year old son and watching too much Jake and the Neverland Pirates, or perhaps it's all that time I've spent reading the Ancient Mariner... but I really like the idea of sending listeners on a bit of a folk radio-show treasure hunt!

To coincide with the launch schedule of my new album I’ve compiled 14 independent radio shows than are on air in a consecutive order between Monday 17th August and Friday 28th August, and each station is going to play one exclusive track from the new album in consecutive order.

Then on Monday 31st of August all the radio stations get the full CD to share with listeners before the official release on September 24th.

Here’s the full schedule:

1. Classic Folk with Mike Norris / The Wireless

To the stations not on the list: I love you and you are amazing! The list of radio stations I wanted to include in this had dozens of stations and presenters that I wasn't able to include in the 14 below. It's not because I didn't want to, but simply the logistics of it. Finding 14 shows that ran in a consecutive order, in the right time window, with a bit flexibility was really hard! The album is quite diverse, and I've tried as much as possible to match tracks to the shows or presenters too. So: if you're a presenter or show not on the list please don't feel left out :)
