Celebrating 21 years of music, ideas and community!
eTown is an exciting weekly radio show that’s been on the air from coast to coast for 21 years. Unlike any other program, eTown mixes live music from top performers in a wide variety of styles with conversation and information about our communities, our environment and common sense stewardship. Every eTown show is full of great music, and the musicians get a chance to open up during interviews with host, Nick Forster. The weekly presentation of the E-chievement Award highlights hometown heroes from around the country, each one taking small steps towards solving big problems. It all comes together with the grand finale with all musicians joining together in one last song.
eTown’s mission is to educate, entertain and inspire a diverse audience, through music and conversation, to create a socially responsible and environmentally sustainable world.

This week, noted New Orleans resident (originally born in Sweden) and performer extraordinaire Anders Osborne returns to the eTown stage after several years absence, to share his soulful vocals, rich songwriting, and tasteful guitar work. And Nick sits down for a conversation with our award winner who started an organization that provides books, education, and learning programs as a lifeline of hope for incarcerated adults. We’ll also have a taste of North Carolina based bluegrass quartet Chatham County Line who make their first visit to eTown.
