Hosts/nerds Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton are your friendly music buddies with the week's best new music discoveries, including conversations with emerging artists, icons and more. Hear songs that can completely change your day, with humor, heart and (sometimes) a whole lot of noise. Directions for use: Morning commute, the gym, or alone time. (If rash persists, discontinue use.)
Every week, comedians/best friends Miel Bredouw and Demi Adejuyigbe attempt to fix a popular song despite absolutely no qualifications. PUNCH UP THE JAM is a show cataloging their descent into madness as they review, rewrite, and remix all the hits you love to hate, or just love (until they ruin it for you.)
Song Exploder is a podcast where musicians take apart their songs, and piece by piece, tell the story of how they were made. Each episode features an artist discussing a song of theirs, breaking down the sounds and ideas that went into the writing and recording. Hosted and produced by Hrishikesh Hirway.
From Rick Rubin, Malcolm Gladwell, and Bruce Headlam. The musicians you love talk about their life, inspiration, and craft. Then play.
Brendan, Dylan, and Payton take a deep dive through different albums of different genres. They list in detail the triumphs and the shortcomings of various artists every week. Amidst the discussion there is laughter, sorrow, anger, peace, and lots of strong convictions. Join us so you can tell us how wrong we are; we enjoy it!
