In Port Credit, Ontario, Canada, Blues & Roots Radio ( BRR ) personnel sat back to look at their listenership and came to the quick conclusion that a vast number of listeners were tuning in from the UK. With the Canadian stations' numbers and acquisitions more than doubled since its launch and a growing number of hosts based there it became very obvious to owners Stevie & Anne Connor that the next step was to launch Blues & Roots Radio UK www.BluesandRootsRadio.co.uk and the face and voice to do it with was that of Michael Williams.
Michael will take on the role of solidifying BRR's growing reputation within the UK and Europe, he has a background in media, music and corporate team building. Michael has been hosting the " Teller & the Tale " on BRR for nearly two years and was quoted as saying, " The success of Blues & Roots Radio can be attributed to its mandate to support the artist first. Without them, we have nothing. I believe in the station's philosophy to support independent artists across the globe and to provide our listeners with the best music and story emerging from grass roots."
As part of the stations objective to stream 24/7 globally with current offices in Port Credit, ON, Canada and Melbourne, Australia its become clear that listeners wanted and needed more in the UK and Europe with a growing listener base and musical offerings it was time to offer hub pages with targeted time zone based landing pages, schedule pages as well as local up to date news.
Stevie Connor, CEO Global Operations is truly excited by this next step for Blues and Roots Radio and after repeatedly saying " Can we launch yet? ", was quoted as saying, " This cements our growing reputation, since the 4th quarter of 2014 and the beginning of 2015 we have gained a tremendous amount of listeners from the UK, its time to grow together and the launch of a global website with localised sites inside will benefit the listeners and more importantly the artists who will have a global platform."
