Description

A fun, loose, free-wheeling weekly radio show for songwriters. It is not a singer/songwriter showcase or an interview show, but a way for songwriters to talk about all the technical aspects of writing songs, sharing what they've learned along the way and how we can all get better at writing songs. The show talks about every genre you can think of: pop, rock, folk, jazz, punk, electronica, dance, and Rap. We have special theme shows where we talk about Bridges, Chord substitutions and the odd Movie show. Think of it like one of those talking head sports shows – ‘cept with less yelling.
