Steve Warren talks radio beginnings and Chinamerica in NYC Newspaper

(February 2018) – Steve Warren, host of Envision Networks® The Country Oldies Show, is quite a character and has aptly been featured in the New York City local newspaper, the Long Island City/Astoria Journal. The feature, called “Astoria Characters,” is written by Nancy Ruhling and highlights “insanely interesting people in New York City’s most diverse neighborhood.”

In their latest feature, “Astoria Characters” focused on the one and only host of America’s longest running country weekly radio program, The Country Oldies Show. The show features a half-century of the greatest country hits from the 1950s to the 1990s.

In the interview, Warren talks about his father’s career in the music business and how he made his on-air debut in the third grade. “My dad didn’t stay in radio,” Steve said, “but he managed regional country music stars and later distributed music for Decca Records.”

Warren also speaks about his work with Chinamerica Radio, a Chinese pop internet radio station that was born after Warren was introduced to Chinese pop music by a friend in the Chinese Consulate in New York City ten years ago. “Learning new music, a new language and a new culture has extended my lifetime. I’ve got something to wake up for every morning,” says Warren.
