"Led by bright fiddle and tight, interlocking harmony vocals, the (title) track is a wide-eyed tribute to the magic of discovering music over the airwaves, with sly references to other songs salted into the lyrics."
- The Wall Street Journal

Grammy-winning bluegrass band Steep Canyon Rangers has perhaps become best known for an ongoing collaboration with comedian and banjo player Steve Martin, who makes many guest appearances with the group. While Martin does not perform on RADIO, the album marks the first time the band has recorded as a six-piece outfit, joined by percussionist Mike Ashworth, who adds a new and novel voice to the group and diversifies the SCR sound.

"RADIO travels the dial from top to bottom. The album tunes into the rock channel for a little while, then the blues, then country, pop and, of course, bluegrass ... a bit of a tribute to all the music that we’ve fallen and will continue to fall in love with. We trace our lives through the songs that we sing, here’s what the last year sounds like for us."
- Graham Sharp, banjo player and singer

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
