Live Bands! // Underground Sounds

US logo

Part of what makes radio wicked is the studio sessions, when artists visit the station and perform their music live on air. In a two-hour program, this means loading and prepping all the gear: the drum-set, guitars and amps, microphones and cables; then, wiring everything up, setting the levels, correcting issues, and before you know it, the band is ready to play!

Since these musical moments are fleeting on-air, here are some recent live in-studio jams from Underground Sounds, extracted for long-term listening pleasure. You can find more performances and interviews on the show blog, or just tune in each week, Mondays 8-10pm.
