About Radio Troubadour

As of Tuesday 29th August 2023 Radio Troubadour is now broadcasting 24 hours a day as an online radio station. Playing the best Alt Country, Americana, Country, Folk, Singer Songwriters. Please bear with with me as I get the station up and running fully. New tracks are being added to the rotation on a daily basis. The station will be playing muisc without any adverts. I will look to add specialist shows including my own in due course. Thanks for your support.

John Godfrey.

Radio Troubadour is my online platform to share the music I love. I'm John Godfrey and I'm based in the Scottish Borders. I produce and present my online radio shows 'John Godfrey's Troubadour Show' and 'Alt Country. Ain't Dead Yet'. You can listen to both shows anytime via this site and on Mixcloud and on Hear This.


'John Godfrey's Troubadour Show' also broadcasts weekly on FRH Radio, IMC Country Radio, HiFiRadio, Pure Beat Radio, Prospect Radio, Smart Country 101 and The Penguin Rocks.


'Alt Country. Ain't Dead Yet' broadcasts weekly on FRH Radio, IMC Country Radio, Prospect Radio and Smart Country 101.

Radio Troubadour is a labour of love for me and all the work relating to it is carried out by myself. I select all of the songs for the shows, I do all the research work, I produce and present the shows. If you fancy buying me a coffee or track or two then please do so, it would be much appreciated. Follow the link below, thanks.

On 'John Godfrey's Troubadour Show' I play a mix of Alt-Country, Americana, Country, Folk, Rock, Roots and Singer Songwriters. Mostly new releases with a few old favourites thrown in. On 'Alt-Country. Ain't Dead Yet' I play a mix of new and classic songs from that 'Alt-Country' genre that 'Ain't Dead Yet'. I also occasionally produce one off special shows including 'Covering Nebraska'. 10 different artists covering the songs on Bruce Springsteen's classic 1982 'Nebraska' album. Also my two part 'Australiana' special. Over 70 different Australian  artists. You can also read an interview I did with New Jersey Stage talking about the podcast, my radio shows and Springsteen.

I would like to expand Radio Troubadour and increase listenership to the shows by having them added to other online platforms and stations. Please contact me if you have a station that would be willing to air a show. I can send you the show in MP3 or WAV format or produce and/or present a similar show for your station. I use to produce and present The Troubadour Show, an online radio show that ran for four years. It started as a live show on Bishop FM and it also aired on two online radio stations, Asbury Music (The Penguin Rocks) & Blues And Roots Radio.

Send you your comments, messages, suggestions for the shows etc. If you're a singer songwriter or in a band or if you're from a PR company or record label, you can send music for airplay consideration to Radio Troubadour.

As I said, Radio Troubadour is a labour of love for me. If you would like to contribute in anyway, you can do so by listening to and sharing the shows with your friends, fans etc on social media and help spread the word about Radio Troubadour. Another way that you can contribute is by recording a small bumpoer, indent, liner, promo etc. If you're a singer songwriter or in a band and would be willing to record a small promo (MP3) with your name, where you're from, mention the station/show name etc and it will be added between tracks on the shows.
