Classic Banjo Radio

Hello everyone. Well, I have finally published my Internet Radio Station, Classic Banjo Radio. It streams 24/7 and has players for iTunes, Android, and Blackberry.

"Quite a number of the pieces (in this book) have piano parts in Bb (and the odd banjo tuning). I usually assume that if one wished to play solo, one tuned as one desired. This is an 1890 publication so much of the banjo population was…"
