Happy New Year everyone! I am Kirsten , the new presenter alternately , with Paul Taylor for Border Radio for the foreseeable future. I will be working with Paul to keep Border Radio going. Bernie has lost his hearing and is waiting for a hearing implant to , hopefully, get enough hearing back to continue in the future. I really enjoyed doing the show last night 12 January 2020 and look forward to more shows as i get more comfortable with the broadcasting system at BFM......

First show of the new decade featuring a bunch of songs I've never played before. Oldies. Newies. Cheesy. Nasty. Nice. Strange. Short. Long. Stories. Feelings. It's an eclectic mix.

Los Lobos then a bit of Stevie Ray mooshed in after ZZ Topp and we're off. The Swearengens and Jenny Don't and Spurs keep the country country as well as new friends, The Hacks & Slow Motion Cowboy. Beautiful new song from Ryan Bingham and a stunning rendition of Ode To Billy Joe with Bobbie Gentry live at the BBC. And in an exciting radio first -The Hood Gurus 'Hayride to Hell' parts one and two back to back!! Could only play the Johnnys after that. Heaps more as well of course.

Fifty kinds of fun with Louis Jarlov up in the studio for a bit, mainly to be there when we play a brand new song of his and a few songs he likes; he brings the Gram, Lucinda, Drive By Truckers and Johnny Fritz among others. Found Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings covering Even Cowgirls Get The Blues in a record bin and some cool tunes by Karen and The Sorrows, Liz Cooper and The Stampede and The Burnlackers on bandcamp and still found time for classic 'dark period' Neil Young and a wicked cover of Bob Dylan's Leopard Skin Pillbox hat and heaps more.

Last minute call up to look after the ranch ! Playing a fw new favorites like Slow Motion Cowboy and The Hacks. Brand spanking new Kate Owen out of Lyttleton's Sitting Room studios and flash new sparkling, in a gloomy way, Emily Fairlight. Old school Dolly, 80's Lone Justice and a special treat from a vinyl re-issue of The Hoodoo Gurus Gorilla Biscuits album. Dreamy Seirra Ferrel and "That ain't no Hank WIlliams song": Cool for Cats by UK Squeeze. Yes is's true.
