MandoScapes, a 90-minute all-mandolin community radio program broadcasting from KRFC (88.9 FM) in Fort Collins, Colorado announces the Mandolin Cafe has signed a one-year contract to provide underwriting for the program.

KRFC is a homegrown community radio station serving the needs of the northern Colorado region. MandoScapes is hosted by area mandolinists Ellen Audley and Brent Hawley and is broadcast both on the air and over the internet via streaming media. Show time is Monday mornings between 6:00 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. Mountain Daylight Time (GMT minus 7 hours). Listeners and fans of mandolin music from around the world are welcome and appreciated!

The program explores the musical landscapes of the world of mandolin--classical, jazz, choro, swing, new acoustic, bluegrass, blues, Cajun, contra dance, celtic, old-timey, and gypsy. The show features music from the mandolin family and related instruments (domra, oud, bandolim, and more) from every continent, particularly America, Europe, India, Russia and Brazil, from the turn of the century, to music just released (or about to be)!

The hosts of MandoScapes welcome submissions of mandolin recordings (CD only please) for possible airplay. To submit a recording, mail a copy to:
