Art of the Song is a weekly one-hour radio program (1/2 talk, 1/2 music) exploring creativity through the lens of songwriting and music performance.

Now celebrating 17 years on the air, the music and interview show is heard on over 100 public and community stations across North America. We interview legendary as well as up-and-coming artists. Past interviews have included Smokey Robinson, Glenn Frey, Gretchen Peters, Jorma Kaukonen, Loreena McKennitt, Leon Russell, Judy Collins, Roger Daltrey and Joan Osborne. Art of the Song’s mission is to educate listeners on the creative process through discussions of songwriting and performing.
