Flap Jones

Host, Not Necessarily Nashville

Pat “Flap” Jones has hosted Not Necessarily Nashville since 1987.  The program is dedicated to country music ignored by mainstream radio. Some call it Americana, but if you ask Flap, “It’s country, folk, bluegrass, rock and blues. I’m a child of the 1950s and '60s and was fortunate enough to grow up in family of music lovers. Our little record player played everything from Hank Williams and Tommy Dorsey to Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, The Beatles and The Stones.”

As a result, on Not Necessarily Nashville you’re likely to hear classics by Hank Williams or Jimmie Rodgers alongside laments from Hayes Carll, Townes Van Zandt or Guy Clark. You’ll hear newgrass from The Greencards and jam band music from The Waybacks followed by the old time bluegrass of Bill Monroe. Mix it all up with country legends like Merle Haggard, Tom T. Hall and Johnny Cash and the countless new artists that refuse to play along with the new country mainstream and you’ve got the best of the rest of country music. It’s the old and the new and hopefully you'll hear something you like.
