Nu Country TV TV rose from the ashes of 1994 radio aspirant Nu Country FM that went to God on Beer Can Hill in Northcote on June 26, 2000. The station was resurrected at the Paris, Texas end of Collins St in Melbourne CBD in 2001. Veteran actor-DJ Peter Hosking and fellow volunteers created Nu Country TV in 2002 after failing to score a radio licence.
Now, it enjoys soirees in the C31 music mecca after it featured in an ABC-TV doco, screened at international film festivals in Nashville and Austin, Texas.
The beat and TV show goes on.
