Country Music Controller
Hello, I’m Alex Krupa.
I’m a singer songwriter from right here in Andover and I’m a huge fan of country music. Specifically modern American country music.
I am on Andover Radio Wednesday evenings, often with Samantha Melrose.
I play live music in and around Andover and run an open mic night once a month at the Malt House in Andover. Apart from the 3 years I spent at university I’ve spent most of my life living here.
I’ve grown to love this town. After moving away and come back (with regular visits) I believe it’s the people that make a place and the people here are some of the best!
Since coming back I’ve been passionate about helping where I can in Andover, whether it’s to organise gigs, supporting fellow musicians, giving upcoming musicians a shot at performing or trying to revamp the scene itself.
I believe the radio station will give people with a passion a stage to project their thoughts and ideas and will help with deciding what direction we want to go as a town!
The people make the place. If we support the people, the place will follow.
On top of that I will be running a country show on Wednesdays from 8pm – 10pm to give people an idea of why I love it and why it’s becoming a fast growing music genre in the UK with artists like Luke Bryan, Sam Hunt, Jake Owen, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Kelsea Ballerini, Garth Brooks and many others.
This is the kind of flavour I want to bring to Andover as well as this I hope to showcase local artist on the show!
