Music Life Radio – Stories at the Intersection of Music and Life
About Music Life Radio
Music Life Radio is an Internet audio program (aka podcast) focusing on stories and interviews about and/or related to music, featuring all sorts of people including musicians, music industry insiders, and fans. We’ve featured interviews with punk rockers, folk and jazz musicians, movie producers, hip hop artists, pop music fans, comedians, authors, actors, pinball game designers, music magazine editors, and even a WWII survivor who talked about what it was like growing up without music during the war because the Nazi’s took all the radios away. Based out of Jack London Square in Oakland CA, the Music Life Radio show was launched in April 2009.
Music Life Radio episodes range in length from 30 to 90 minutes, and are released one or two times a month to a growing audience.
Music Life Radio continues in the tradition of popular radio shows like NPR’s Fresh Air, and This American Life, capturing stories at the intersection of music and life.
Music Life Radio is available for free on iTunes, as an RSS Feed directly from the site, and can be streamed live from each episode post.
