Object of Sound: This Summer of Live Music

 Join host Hanif Abdurraqib for a special episode of Object of Sound from PRX and Sonos exploring the complex and exciting promise that is the return of live music after a long year apart.

We’re in an unprecedented moment: after a long pandemic year, people are starting to venture out again, and long-shuttered music venues are re-opening. Whether you’ve already been catching tons of shows this summer or are not yet ready to see concerts at all, we’ll be spending this hour looking at the evolving landscape of live music.

Guests include music industry journalist Cherie Hu, and GRAMMY award winning artist Esperanza Spalding. Plus we hear from listeners across the country who’ve called in to share their most cherished festival memories.

This special will air on Friday July 2nd and 10 AM and 8 PM here on 88.3 FM KCPW.
