A country show like no other 

A country show like no other. Appealing to music nerds, people who "don't like country," and classic country fans alike, Dollar Country offers music forgotten to time and in many cases was never known in the first place. Featuring all country singles played on 45 rpm discs from private, local, regional, and major labels and artists, Frank the Drifter focuses on the unknown, unheard, and unloved artists in country music's history.

Demographically Dollar Country appeals to left leaning people aged 25-54 with the vast majority (82.4%) saying if it was on a local radio station they would tune in to listen.
