The Interstate

The Interstate

A St. Louis radio staple, ‘The Interstate’ plays the kind of Americana, folk-tinged rock, and alternative country that made this city a name in the mid 1990s and early 2000s. Pat Wolfe’s Top 10 list serves as an homage to the enduring appeal of those genres, with newer artists like First Aid Kit and Will Hoge comfortably occupying space alongside giants like Mark Knopfler and The Bottle Rockets.

The Bottle Rockets / Bit Logic / Bloodshot

Cody Canada and the Departed / ‘3’ / Underground
