Episode 335: The Sounds of Washington, DC - Part 1

Known to most of the world as a political playground, Washington, D.C. is a city where decisions that shape the course of, not just American, but HUMAN history, are made every day. More than that though, D.C. is a city where cultures collide resulting in a creative class that produces some of the most compelling and diverse art in the world. Built on the legacy of jazz and go-go, D.C. is on the cusp of a creative explosion and bringing everything from hip-hop to indie rock into the fold.

On our latest podcast, we're kicking off a twelve-part series exploring the sounds of our home, where they come from, and where they may be going. Joining us for this inaugural installment of Sounds Of Washington, D.C. are Hometown Sounds host Paul Vodra, and Philip Basnight, one-half of D.C. folk-pop powerhouses Broke Royals.

Episode 92: Hometown Sounds

This week we’re delivering a double-stuffed podcast just in time for Thanksgiving! It’s no secret that the DC music scene has been blowing up, and for the past three years one of the scene’s biggest supporters has been Hometown Sounds. Part internet radio, part blog, and part podcast, Paul Vodra and Tony Porreco have been working overtime to make sure the best and brightest sounds DC has to offer makes it to the place that’s most important: Your Ears.

Recently the pair paid a visit to the basement to chat with Kevin about the scene, podcasting, the ins-and-outs of music licensing and much, much more. So tune in, kick back, and loosen your belt as we serve up our latest episode of ChunkyGlasses: The Podcast with the good gentleman of DC’s one and only Hometown Sounds.
