Dear Awesome Foundation,
There's a music podcast I've always wanted to listen to - each episode is a primer for a different genre of music. The knowledgeable and interested host has a different expert co-host (or three) each episode, and this co-host plays records and the host asks questions and they talk about what the music is, its history and major players, its culture and stories, how to listen with informed ears, and how to find more of it.
After many years of searching, I have come to the conclusion that if I want to listen to this podcast, I will have to make it. I have heard the call and I am ready.
Sometimes you want to get out of your bubble and explore other cultures and unfamiliar sounds and you just don't know how to start. This show will be an invitation, a road map, a field guide - an extended hand, beckoning you to dive into the warm unknown. There are friends in there, and they have some pretty sweet jams.
