Artie Martello has hosted Mostly Folk on WIOX 91.3FM since the station's inception in September of 2010.
It airs weekdays from 10am-12pm
In 2011, the addition of Sonny Ochs to the WIOX family has made the folk catologue at WIOX one of the premier radio stations in the country for listening to folk music.
You can hear Sonny Ochs every Friday afternoon from 1pm-3pm with "Folk Music and Other Stuff" and whenever Artie cannot be on the air with Mostly Folk.
With a vocal posture that sways from folkie to country outlaw, Angie Heimann, the “front” of this Cali-to-Carolina duo, relays vignettes and sketches portraits of no small intensity, nor absence of charm. Partner Cas Sochacki’s dobro adorns the sparing and suitably atmospheric accompaniment. The chorus of the leadoff track, “Sadness Thief”, should be “hook” enough for airplay. Other tracks of note include “Ballad To Biker Joe”, “Wind And The Sand” and “Calypso Lane”.
The new Nick Verzosa and the Noble Union EP has been released and is causing radio DJ’s to take notice. Nick Verzosa and the Noble Union have a fresh new sound that fans will adore.
This new CD release is titled Love In Principle and delivers 6 of the hottest Americana tracks to be released in 2014. The studio production and mix is sparkling, and this truly adds to the glowing songwriting and vocal performances. This band has a feisty modern sound, which embraces a bit of the true country sound at times (with steel guitar and fiddle licks) but is subtle enough to add an Austin Texas flavor to some of the tracks. RMR predicts Nick Verzosa and the Noble Union will be climbing the radio charts soon and lines will be long to see them perform live.

The Statesboro Revue band is much cooler than cool. This band has a country & roots rock sound and attitude in their music that many bands before them have strived to achieve. Well these musicians have nailed it with their latest album release “Ramble On Privilege Creek”. This is one of those CD’s you cannot stop listening to. It will make you want to dance, cry, sing and at times will bring a smile to your face. This is what great songs are supposed to do for people. They reach down into the listener’s soul and tear at heartstrings and emotions hidden deep within. In addition to the music CD, their latest video from one of the tracks on this CD “Huck Finn” is fist-class and a joy to view.
The “Ramble On Privilege Creek” album is a significant contribution to the roots
Albert Castiglia here separates himself from the guitarslinger pack by way of a tastier-than-the-typical song list, lyrically catchy, rhythmically varied and much of it penned by the Miami-bred axeman. Standouts in this high energy set include “Triflin’”, “Keep You Around Too Long” and “Love One Another”.
Clevelander Letizia treks the trail blazed by guitarists such as Robben Ford and Chris Cain, fusing blues and jazz into a fresh sounding hybrid that does right by both its sources. Both the bite and touch this enterprise requires are evident on each track here as is a welcome knack for change-ups in tone and attack. The lyrical slant is towards the sly and ironic on cuts including “Kill My Conscience”, “The Devil is a Nice Guy” and the title track. Solid keys-and-rhythm backup here as well.
