FRH Radio was launched on the 4th January 2021 and is based in Essex in England.
The station was initially the idea of two UK country music artists, whose intention is to play the best country music they can find, with an emphasis on new and independent artists. They hope that FRH Radio will become the "go to" station for all country music lovers and everyone who is interested in listening to great country music artists from around the globe.
The driving force behind the station is Kay Cook-Abbott, a UK based independent country singer and songwriter who has a passion to help fellow independent artists get their music heard by a wider audience.
Kay is joined by Mick Hearn a fellow UK country music artist who has been playing guitar for more years than he cares to remember and is a steel guitar player of some repute in both the UK and USA.
The American connection comes in the form of Jerry Lee Willis, another long standing independent musician and DJ who hails from California
In November 2021, Mel Simmonds joined the team. Mel is a succesful country songwriter who lives in Canada and shares the station ethos of supporting independent artists and musicians.
Kay, Mick, Jerry and Mel hope that you will enjoy the music they play but please feel free to let us know what you think through the FRH Music Facebook page by clicking HERE.
We are always on the lookout for new music, so if you are an independent country music artist and would like to be added to our playlists, head over to our our Song Submissions page for more information.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO HELP US HELP INDEPENDENT ARTISTS?
FRH Radio is a labour of love for Kay and the team.
The station is run on a "not-for-profit" basis and none of the team receive any financial reward from their involvement with FRH Radio. However, broadcasting the best country music we can find, 24 hours a day does cost money and this is paid for out of the station founder's own pockets.
If you enjoy the music and programmes we broadcast, and would like to help support us, you can do so in one of three ways:-
All monies received will ONLY be used towards the 3rd party running costs of the station. Thank you.
