Blues and Roots Radio launches branded UK website; Dr Michael Williams to facilitate

In Port Credit, Ontario, Canada, Blues & Roots Radio (BRR) personnel sat back to look at their listenership and came to the conclusion that a vast number of listeners were tuning in from the UK. With the Canadian station's numbers and acquisitions having more than doubled since its launch and a growing number of hosts based overseas, it became very obvious to owners Stevie & Anne Connor that the next step was to launch Blues & Roots Radio UK (www.BluesandRootsRadio.co.uk). And, the face and voice to do it with was that of Michael Williams.

Michael will take on the role of solidifying BRR’s growing reputation within the UK and Europe. He has a background in media, music and corporate team building. Michael has been hosting the popular storytelling programme, "Teller & the Tale" on BRR for nearly two years and was quoted as saying, "The success of Blues & Roots Radio can be attributed to its mandate to support the artist first. Without them, we have nothing. I believe in the station's philosophy to support independent artists across the globe and to provide our listeners with the best music and story emerging from the grass roots."


As part of the station's objective to stream 24/7 globally with current offices in Port Credit, ON, Canada and Melbourne, Australia, it's become clear that listeners wanted and needed more in the UK and Europe. With a growing listener base and musical offerings, it was time to offer hub pages with targeted time-zone based landing pages, schedule pages as well as local up-to-date news.


Stevie Connor, CEO Global Operations, is truly excited by this next step for Blues and Roots Radio and after repeatedly saying, " Can we launch yet?" was quoted as saying, "This cements our growing reputation for since the 4th quarter of 2014 and the beginning of 2015 we have gained a tremendous amount of listeners from the UK; it's time to grow together and the launch of a global website with localised sites inside will benefit the listeners and more importantly the artists who will have a global platform."


We welcome the UK and Europe to the Blues and Roots Radio worldwide family.
