As of January 1, 2017 we are no longer producing new episodes of In Search of a Song, the syndicated radio show that I hosted from about 2006 to 2016. It was an honor and a thrill to explore the mysteries of songwriting and creativity in conversations with so many wonderful songwriters, producers, and musicians (many of whom were personal heroes of mine). The lessons I learned, and the many amazing memories and experiences I had while hosting this show are things I will cherish for the rest of my life.
I want to say a big thank you to Rich Reardin, the tireless Executive Producer and Chief Engineer on In Search of a Song for all those years. Rich is really the one who made it all happen week in and week out. I mostly just did the fun part! So thank you Rich.
I’d also like to thank all the fantastic folks at WFHB in Bloomington, Indiana and all of our other affiliate radio stations who broadcast In Search of a Song throughout the years. Most of these stations are community and college stations run by volunteers who just love music. It’s a ton of work to deliver all that programming every week, and we are fortunate that there are so many great and talented people in our communities who devote their much time to creating something so cool for the rest of us to enjoy.
If you listened to and enjoyed In Search of a Song, I want to say “thank you” to you as well. I truly appreciate your support and your interest in the creative process behind great music. The show has ended but the journey has not. I’m sure our paths will cross again. I hope you’ll come say hello at a concert sometime.
And last but not least, be sure to check out Rich Reardin’s new radio show Beyond A Song!
