13 SONG EXPLODER

WHAT IS IT?

“Ex­plain­ing a joke is like dis­sect­ing a frog,” said E B White and Kather­ine S White. “You un­der­stand it bet­ter, but the frog dies in the process.” For­tu­nately, dis­sect­ing a piece of music works far bet­ter, and here artists come on the show to ex­plain how they made a song, and how it lay­ers to­gether to be­come the piece you lis­ten to at the end.

WHY SHOULD I LIS­TEN?

Be­cause it’s rare to hear mu­si­cians fo­cus­ing so in­tently on their craft, and even songs you know well can hold fas­ci­nat­ing se­crets. The episodes that will pique your in­ter­est will de­pend on your music taste, but there’s bound to be one or two in the ar­chive to meet your needs.

HOW LONG AND HOW OF­TEN?

Be­tween ten min­utes and half an hour, de­pend­ing on what the artist has to say. You get a hand­ful of episodes ev­ery month.
