If there’s ever been a public radio success story, John Fullbright is perfect proof. The young singer-songwriter got his start gigging around his native Oklahoma, but his 2012 debut From The Ground Up broke in a big way. His local public radio station picked it up first: “It was the first time I ever heard myself on the radio,” he told a Studio 1A audience last week. A rave review from NPR’s Fresh Air soon led to national tours and a Grammy nomination. “It’s the only way we can get the good word out,” Fullbright says, “because we’re musicians and we don’t wake up early to do TV slots. Radio waits on us to wake up and sober up and get to the station on time.”
