I’ve hosted a radio show, The Audio Tourist, every Sunday from 8-9p ET for the past 3 years. Each week, I travel to a place in space and/or time, playing great music from around the world. You can tune in live worldwide at https://wayofm.org/listen-live, or peruse the archives below. I’ll be adding all of my shows over time, so please check back regularly!
