NORMA & SLIM - IN TAMWORTH! -Slim's music  is a favourite on Bony Mountain Radio. 


We have an overload of talent in this Country-but so many artists get no Airplay- get very little exposure-our Country still has a cringe factor in regard to our grass roots Bush Ballads-and most artists unless they can afford to tour-never really get the exposure- on mainstream. We do boast a few Gold Guitar winners (regular artists) on the Festival-and on Bony Mountain Radio- guess I am one of those- But outside that Tamworth bubble- quite a few artists have carved out their own niche!  Eight Ball has done very well with exposure-in the mainstream -but a lot of Bands/Artists are not prepared to pursue all that? I can relate to that-it is a huge thing to tour Overseas- do the travel-uproot yourself -it is a life changer- but I admire anyone who can make the transistion- but in the meantime Bony Mountain Radio are proud to promote and support all . Please send your latest releases to our Programmer- Phil- Bony Mountain Music -30 Duff RD. Bony Mountain Qld 4370 -  email - Phil's phone- 0492 863 964 PICTURED (right) DUBBO TURNER- BUSH POET/LOCAL CHARACTER! playing Dubbos poetry- on my Program! 



    A VERY TALENTED AUSSIE DOIN' IT IN THE USA! New release coming soon-Eight Ball is doin' us proud in the USA- working-recording in Nashville! We will feature his music as it comes in
