Podwireless is an expanded version of fRoots Radio, a monthly folk, roots, ‘world music’ (though I try not to use that term any more) and loosely connected music podcast that began in 2002 as a service for the readers of fRoots magazine (RIP).
Q: Podwireless seems to be free. How is it funded?
A: It’s a labour of love and public service netcasting which runs entirely on donations of spare change from supporters – see the Tip Jar link at the top of the column on the right, or go to . Suitable CDs to play (see below), teacakes and coffee are also vital!
