The Songbirds Radio Hour

"The Songbirds Radio Hour" is a music-and-interview show recorded in front of a live audience at the Songbirds Guitar & Pop Culture Museum in downtown Chattanooga.

Each episode covers a different theme — and how it intertwines with music, from racism and civil rights to the legacy of Southern rock, women in punk, regional music history, gender identity and much more.

The show features regional and national celebrities — from authors and journalists to musicians, producers and others involved in the music industry — in a Q&A-style format, along with music from a regional or national band.

Free tickets for recordings of "The Songbirds Radio Hour" are available online only at the Songbirds website: songbirdsfoundation.org. Space is limited to 75 guests.

Proceeds from beverages served support Songbirds’ Guitars for Kids program - which gives free guitars, lessons, and music therapy to children throughout the South.
