Public radio and independent music have always gone hand in hand. From All Songs Considered to Morning Becomes Eclectic to This American Life, Public Radio has long championed and sustained independent musicians, exposing their music—and the incredible stories behind it. Join us as musicians show non-commercial radio some love.
Special guest musicians Thao Nguyen (Thao with The Get Down Stay Down), Zach Rogue, John Vanderslice, Kevin Johnson (Weekend), Zoe Keating, Quinn DeVeaux (The Blue Beat Review), Sean Hayes and Jhameel come together with radio producer Stephanie Foo (NPR's Snap Judgment) to converse about the importance of public radio as a vital platform for independent music!
TThe show will be recorded before you, the live audience, to be rebroadcast on local public radio stations. Come and applaud so distinctly, your friends will know it's you when the show is aired. Live stories, pre-recorded ones, jokes, serious faces, KQED, KALW, and yes of course, live music, will all gather to love and support public radio.
