O’Shea launch nationally syndicated radio show on KIX Country

Tuesday 19 January, 2016

With their own TV show O’SHEA USA on Foxtel’s Country Music Channel in it’s fifth  season and their tenure as hosts of QANTAS’ “Big Country” approaching it's third year, Gold Guitar winning musical duo O’Shea are no strangers to stepping behind the camera.

Now, with the launch of their new nationally syndicated radio show, the pair can add another string to their already impressive bow.

The Nashville Hour with Mark & Jay O’Shea premieres Friday, Jan 29 at 4pm, just in time for the Tamworth Country Music Festival.  

The show will broadcast nationally across over 40 markets on Australia’s largest Country music network, KIX Country. Operated by Grant Broadcasters, KIX Country Radio  network has a potential reach in excess of 4 Million listeners.

“My brothers always said I had a great face for radio,” says Mark O’Shea.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun and an extension of what we do at our shows”.

Except now, we’ll be joking around with some of the biggest Country stars on the planet, instead of just ourselves!” adds Jay.

"2016 is going to be a huge year for KIX and we are very excited to be welcoming Mark and Jay O'Shea to the network. O’SHEA are very well known and loved by Australian country fans, their excitable personalities and connections to American country stars will be an asset to the KIX family,” says Justin Thomson, Content Director for KIX.

The show will feature interviews with the stars of American Country Music and will cover all the latest happenings straight from Music City, USA.

For one segment of the show, O’SHEA have secured US Country artists to give their very best “G’Day” in an Australian accent. Listeners will be able to “Guess The G’Day” for a chance to win prizes sent all the way from Nashville.

The show will air weekly every Friday at 4pm and will repeat Sunday’s at 5pm.
