Podwireless is an expanded version of ye olde fRoots Radio (RIP), 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) and since the magazine's demise in 2019 has continued in much-expanded form. It's now often to be found in the top 5 folk, roots, acoustic and world music podcasts.
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!
