MUSIC OF AMERICA PODCAST

Share your art with the rest of the country

MISSION image
The mission is simple; to support the podcast Music of America,  to provide exposure to up and coming musical talent in America. In some cases, we hope to expand and include existing acts. But primarily it’s our desire to help undiscovered acts get "found".

Each week, we will play one interview per day of 5 different musicians from each state in the country. Week one will feature artists from Alabama and will conclude in week 50 with artists from Wyoming. Each interview will have music from a CD or album or 8-track or whatever your medium is of the day. Since the interviews will be canned (pre-recorded) changes may occur before broadcast and we will be in touch with you to see if there is anything we need to adjust on the podcast before air date. Maybe new album, a new addition or subtraction from a band, a new label or signing or maybe nothing at all.

Let us know if you are interested and what state you prefer to represent (some musicians have dual residences or band mates in other states)

Thanks and we look forward to interviewing you!

Tom Pollard is the creator and host of Music of America.  He spent 10 years as a broadcaster in Missouri, Kansas and Colorado.  His first stint was hosting a late night talk show and Sunday morning guest show.  He has interviewed musicians all across the country.

Tom has always had a passion for music. He began playing guitar at an open mic night at the age of 15, with a very warped necked Lyle 12-string. He worked sound with a local band in Missouri while he was also programming a daytime country radio station. He was front man and 2nd guitar for a local cover band in St. Louis.

Tom retired from the working world in April of 2022, bought a house outside St. Louis where his grandkids live and still plays music with his buddies. He decided to build a studio for the guys to use to record some of their stuff for fun then one day it hit him. This podcast idea called Music Of America.

And he hit the ground running, gathering guests and building the studio.
