Buckle Bunnies

It's wonderful to see how many Radio 2 presenters have fallen in love with country music, since their Controller, and BBC Director of Music, Bob Shennan, became Director At Large of the Country Music Association.

Once again, the network is offering a pop-up-station to run alongside the annual C2C Music Festival at the O2, this time over four days, and featuring a live stage for performances within the venue.

The radio schedule, with many a missing 'g' for authenticity, includes:

Steve Wright's Country Story Songs
Ken Bruce - Country Tracks of My Years
Saddle Up with Liza Tarbuck
Jeremy Vine's Stompin' Country
Simon Mayo - Cookin' It Country
Michael Ball's Country Collection
Sally Traffic's Lonesome Whistle

Missing this year:

Vanessa Feltz's Bean and Red-Eye Gravy Cook-out
The Organist Entertains Rednecks
Graham Norton's Cowboy Tales
Elaine Paige in Annie Get Your Gun
