Monday Night - No Mike or Michael


Once again neither Mike Hartman or I will be able to do our regularly scheduled programs here on The Mix.

Both of us experiencing DJO aka "Day Job Overflow".

Work comes before play.

Hartman - Not Tonight

Hello Mix Listeners,

Once again DJ Mike Hartman's day job will last well into the evening.

So, he won't be doing his National Crossroads Bluegrass Show tonight.

However, you should still stop by and listen to Cindy Baucom's Knee Deep in Bluegrass show @ 10pm Eastern!

No Mike or Michael Tonight!


Both Mike Hartman and I will not be able to do our shows tonight.

Mike went to his day job today even though his was not feeling well at all. He's rather ill tonight so when he gets home, he needs to get to bed.

I'm well but just too much "day job" to work on so.... maybe next week.

Randy Kohrs band equipment recovered.

As reported by Ted Lehmann's blog, it appears that an individual pawned a martin guitar at a local pawn shop in efforts to feed a drug addiction and told the clerk that he would be coming back with more band instruments. The clerk alerted the police who then arrested the individual when he returned. A search warrant was served and the majority of the bands stolen equipment was recovered.

Good police work, a sharp pawn shop clerk (I'd like to that THAT person!) brought a devasting story to a happen ending.

Monday Night - Mike But No Michael

Hey there Mix listeners,

I just visited with Mike Hartman on the phone and he said that because he is getting off work early today.... he WILL be doing his show tonight @ 8pm Eastern.

However, I'm still unable to do my show tonight because of too much "day job."

So tonight, you will have "Mike but no Michael".

Hopefully I can get back on schedule for next week.

Thanks for listening,

Deep Cut Bluegrass - Not This Week


I will need to fore go my show this week as I have too much "day job" work to do.

Here it is a Sunday morning ( beautiful by the way here in Iowa.... 56 degrees) so I don't know yet if Mike Hartman will make his show either.

Mike won't know until sometime Monday afternoon if he can make his show.

So, it's possible that this coming Monday night will be "Mike-less".

Mike Hartman Is Working Late Tonight - No Show

Hey there Bluegrass Mix Listeners,

I just received a phone call from DJ Mike Hartman.... he was still in his big truck and working hard. He's been at it since 5am today.

His workday is not going to finish up in time for him to do his show, "National Crossroads Bluegrass".

Mike offers his sincere apology to all of his fans and hopes you will be able to tune in next Monday night for his next show!

Monday June 15th - June Is Half Gone

Hello Bluegrass Mix Listeners,

Hope you can join me tonight @ 10pm Eastern for my show, Deep Cut Bluegrass!

I have several new songs on my play list tonight from Rhonda Vincent, Randy Kohrs (originally from my state... IOWA!), Kenny Ray Horton and many more!

As I'm typing this, there's been no word of confirmation from either Terri Ann or Mike Hartman being able to make their shows tonight. Summer time can get very busy and since we (DJs) here on The Mix volunteer our time... once in awhile our "day jobs" spill over into the evenings.

Tune in @ 6pm Eastern for Teri Ann just in case she's able to make it.... then Mike Hartman should be here @ 8pm Eastern unless his trucking job runs late tonight.

Anyway, you will always hear great Bluegrass music here on The Bluegrass Mix!

Memorial Day - Monday Night

Hello there Mix Listeners,

I trust your Memorial Day is going well.

For me it's been mostly a day of relaxation but with mixed emotions as I remember family members and friends who have passed on.

Most importantly... remembering and honoring all who served in our military, giving their lives to defend this country.

As I'm writing this blog post, I don't believe Teri Ann will be broadcasting tonight.... but Mike Hartman and I will be.

However, you might still want to check in at 6pm in case Teri Ann is doing her show.

Mike has a special Memorial Day play list all set to go so be sure to join him at 8pm Eastern.

I will follow Mike at 10pm Eastern.... hope you can join us!

God Bless,

The “No-Talk” stream is gaining popularity

For those of you who have been visiting our website regularly know that The Bluegrass Mix now has a 3rd 128k “No-Talk” stream where you can hear bluegrass music non-stop and uninterrupted by dj-hosted shows.  This stream is slowly gaining popularity and is actually exceeding my expectations on the number of listeners at this point of a little over a month online.

I wish to thank ALL listeners who choose The Bluegrass Mix for their bluegrass music programming no matter what stream is chosen.

Bluegrass music fans are THE BEST!!!

Hey there Bluegrass Mix listeners,

I won't be able to do my show tonight. One of my wife's dear uncles passed away on Saturday so we have a funeral visitation to go to this evening. Along with that, my "day job" is spilling over into the evening hours all this week.

There may be another DJ sitting in for me this evening but not yet sure.

Thanks for listening!

Almost Back To Normal

Bluegrass Mix Listeners,

We may be getting back to our normal Monday Night Bluegrass Mix Blockbuster lineup. Today, I received an email from Teri Ann indicating she will be returning to Monday nights in the near future! I don't think she will be with us tonight but maybe next week.

Last week I visited with Mike Hartman on the phone and his schedule has been busy but he should be here tonight.

Hope you can join us tonight on The Bluegrass Mix.

Mike Hartman will be on @ 8pm Eastern, I will follow @ 10pm Eastern.

Good Lord Willin' And The Creek Don't Rise...

Bluegrass Mix Fans,

Well, after missing the past two Monday nights... I should be back this evening!

My play list is ready to go and at this moment, the day is going well. However, at around 11am here, we lost all power. My wife and I live above our business here on the Centerville, Iowa town square... the entire town square was without power. We finally had power back about an hour and a half later.

At this moment, I've not yet heard if Mike Hartman will make it or not.

Hope you can join me tonight @ 10pm Eastern Time!

Once Again, I Will Miss My Show

Hello Bluegrass Mix Listeners,

Due to my business building having the front door rammed in during an attempted robbery at 11 AM yesterday, I won't be broadcasting my show tonight.

There is much to do... working with the insurance adjuster and contractors to be able to have my business open later this week. Right now the front entrance is boarded over because the perpetrator destroyed the front door with his Toyota Prius to gain access to the building. What makes this story more alarming is that my wife and I live on the second floor.

There is much more to the story but I would rather not share it here.

As I mentioned last week here on the blog, I hope to be back next Monday night.
