In 2009, Ralph's Back Porch was named the Best Western Radio Station by the Western Music Association.

From co-host Ralph Hampton:

Broadcast from their office in San Augustine Texas, Ralph Hampton and Tamara Boatright give western music, and cowboy poetry a new spin, burning up the worldwide web airwaves. Featuring and interviewing the artists and poets who are keeping our western heritage alive, they are winning a worldwide audience.

More than that, Ralph and Tam truly love bringing folks in all fifty states as well as nine foreign countries the heart and soul of the west through the songs and cowboy poetry of some of the finest artists in the business today!

Ralph's Back Porch is a step back in time where western singers and cowboy poets from all over America and beyond come to sit, have a laugh or two, talk about western singing and cowboy poetry and generally have a wonderful time.

We sure do hope you will join us, me and Tamara, for a good, old-fashioned evening of fun on Monday & Thursday nights 7 until 9 PM TEXAS time and remember…anything can happen on the Back Porch! Drop by and see for yourselves!
