We are delighted to announce that Kay Cook-Abbott has received nomination for 10 catagories in these forthcoming awards.
Most of the nominations are for Kay's contributions as an independent country music artist, but here at FRH Radio, we are particulally pleased that she has been nominated for the catagory of "Radio Host".
Updates will be available on this page when more information is available.

FRH Radio is ONE YEAR OLD on the 4th January 2022...
FRH Radio sprang from the germ of an idea between Kay and Mick during the UK lockdown in late 2020 and after a lot of hard work over the 2020 Christmas period, the first broadcast was aired on the 4th January 2021.
The success of the station has exceeded all expectations and this can only be put down to the support we have received from all the independent artists, songwriters, record companies and promoters in the country music community, many of whom have become friends and colleagues, who have shared their invaluable experience and knowledge with us. We must also thank our many loyal listeners without whom we would have no purpose.
We look forward to our second year of broadcasing and adding even more great independent music to our play lists.
