Can anyone recommend good radio channels / streaming channels for this kind of music?
I have got a Roberts Internet/Dab radio which is fantastic. You can get all the Country/Southern Rock/Americana channels from the US. A lot of them are continuous music with no adverts. The sound is also great. There are hundreds of channels from all the US states and Canada and any other part of the world for that matter. You can search and set up the channels by category eg Alt Country, Rebel Country etc etc. The make is Roberts Stream 94i. It is more convenient than streaming via your laptop. Not cheap (about £160 on Amazon) but a great present for my birthday. It also allows me not to listen to the shite on the BBC and Talksport because there are lots of Talk channels and a separate channel for podcasts. All you need is the usual Wi Fi.

"Wasted Days" is not the best song written by John Mellencamp - it's not a bad song, some nice accordion in there too, but it is significant if you like this genre.

For the first time on record - John Mellencamp and Bruce Springsteen perform together. Bruce performs on 3 of the tracks on Mellencamp's upcoming album in 2022.

Love both of them, seen them both but John at the Apollo M/cr was the best.
