The Scene from Indiana Public Radio

Series produced by WBST

Series image

Each week, we bring listeners an hour of live music performed in Hoosier venues catered by a team of human beings who simply love music.

The Scene is a weekly public radio show produced in Indiana that features music in performance from around the great Hoosier state. Each week, we bring listeners an hour of live music performed in local venues catered by a team of human beings who simply love music.

Our goal is to promote the Indiana music scene by focusing on the music itself. We want to tell the story of the music happening in our own backyards, to be a spark of conversation between fellow music-lovers, and to give listeners a bit of context about new and upcoming artists, sometimes through interviews with the musicians themselves.

The Scene is produced at Indiana Public Radio in collaboration with Ball State’s Music & Media Production department and is made possible in part by listeners (just like you!) and the Vice President for Information Technology at Ball State. Hide full description
