Boots & Bones

Tuesdays 4-6pm




Straighten that bolo tie, pardner, and step inside Boots & Bones, the on-air honky-tonk catering to the alternative side of country. You’ll hear: gritty Americana, lo-fi cowpunk, blistering bluegrass, thumping rockabilly, Austin outlaws, bone-chillin’ blues, blue yodelers, Irish songsmiths, Tejano rockers, local folk-heroes, and the latest in hellraising, head-banging, boot-scooting alt-country. Tune in every Tuesday from 4 – 6 pm with Christian Wallace to hear the country music your momma warned you about.
