I WANT MY Americana Channel (Back)

Good news and bad news for fans of the Americana music channel on the “Music Choice” cable service.

Good news: After being discontinued in July due to low ratings, Music Choice revived the Americana Channel after receiving “over 500 emails and phone calls” according to the Sep. – Oct. issue of “No Depression” magazine.

Bad news: Even though Americana’s back, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re getting it. Your local cable company decides what Music Channel programming is in their lineup. For example, neither Adelphia in Merrimack nor my buddy Jill’s cable company, Cox, in Tyler has put Americana back in their lineup. Yet.

So, it’s time for another strongly worded letter, this time to our cable providers and request that we get our Americana channel back.
