Your Americana Radio

Well, hey there friends! Your Americana with Jennifer Westwood has been welcomed to the WAKT FM family in Toledo, OH and streaming everywhere at!

You can tune in every Friday at 7pm EST to listen to great music you don't hear on many corporate airwaves. If you are hungry for something fresh and tired of hearing the same 12 artists dominating the airwaves decade after decade, join my family. Discover regional and national acts making great music today and hear some classics that shaped our culture.

Your Americana encompasses the entire family tree of Americana - Alt-Country, Soul, Zydeco, Gospel, Funk, Bluegrass, Blues, Southern Rock and more.

Yep. I'm here to preach the good news about good music and share with you, learn along the way and get some good stuff into your earballs. I hope you learn about artists to love, get out to their shows when they are visiting the region and if you hear something you don't like, It sure beats a mayonnaise sandwich.

If you want to chime in on some of my playlist themes or chat over music you can follow on Facebook for now at YOUR AMERICANA RADIO

I look forward to sharing music, stories and bonding over music... Watch for a podcast spin off later this year with extended interviews from artists, music industry pros and interesting people!

Your Americana is available for broadcast on other stations. For info please contact
