The Alan Moberg Show

South Vancouver Island

Wed. April 21st, 2010 – Wed. March 30th, 2011 12:00pm - 1:00pm

These days he is wearing more than his cowboy hat. After decades making music from vinyl to downloads, Alan Moberg becomes a radio host. The Alan Moberg Show broadcasts Wednesdays from Salt Spring Island, BC (107.9 fm), and is heard worldwide at, noon to one, Pacific Time.

The Alan Moberg Show is a fascinating mix of his many recordings (sixteen albums in total) as well as songs and singers he loves well and who have influenced his music—such as Johnny Cash, Guy Clark, Rodney Crowell, Townes Van Zandt, Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison Stuart Hamlin, T Texas Tyler, Paul Robeson, Hank Snow, and yodeling mentors such as Roy Rogers.

Listen to Alan Moberg as he weaves a magical musical radio spell, Wednesdays, with songs and stories to dream by and to delight in. Let Alan know you're listening, and get CDs at

Songs to Dream by, Delight in, of the Coast, of the Country and of the Heart
He is country. He is folk. He is early rock. He is gospel. He is Western Roots. He is known as The Saltwater Cowboy. Inducted into the BC Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008 for his extensive body of original and moving songs, with traditional western themes like bravery, innocence, survival and the cross-cultural friendships we share with First Nations people, his songs celebrate the lives of ordinary men and women, giving them identity & dignity. He has known what it's like to walk the long rocky road of life and ask for a helping hand, from a friend or from a greater power. He is a BC Troubadour as well for his extensive repertoire of songs about the province he so loves. He has the ability to put smiles on people's faces and in their hearts.
