The channel will feature the weekly show Greater Bakersfield, co-hosted by Dwight Yoakam and James Austin along with special guests who explore the influence and reaches that the Bakersfield Sound has across musical genres. Scheduled guests include Chris Hillman, Jakob Dylan, Post Malone, Mike Nesmith and Micky Dolenz, Dave Alvin and Jackie DeShannon.
A special event occurred on June 28, 1989 when all four Monkees were guests on The Mark & Brian Show on KLOS-FM in Los Angeles, California. The quartet sang "Papa Gene's Blues" and "Daydream Believer" live on the air with Peter playing acoustic guitar. Michael was present to hype his concert appearance with Micky, Davy, and Peter at the Universal Amphitheatre on July 9, an event that would coincide with The Monkees receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame the next day.
