Co-Hosted by Pat Mitchell and Kevin Cubbins, the weekly program includes live musical performance, commentary and interviews, and educational series programmed by artists, scholars, and music industry insiders.

Now in its 21st year, Beale Street Caravan is a recent recipient of the ASCAP Deem Taylor Award for Radio Broadcast.

Forty original programs are produced each year.

Beale Street Caravan is also distributed via Content Depot, NPR Worldwide, Australia's CBAA, Soundcloud, and available as a podcast.
