The podcast Every Little Thing from Gimlet Media did an episode on news music this week. I can really recommend it. The show’s premise is that it takes a trip down the rabbit hole to look closer at things that may seem mundane or simple but are actually extraordinary. Aside from lots of interesting facts about news music, host Flora Lichtman gets into the history of news music and discusses some of the potential downsides (how it helps ‘sell’ the news).
For the episode they interviewed me. In fact, I’m featured pretty prominently. Thanks to Flora and the great team at Gimlet for doing that! You’ll also hear from DreamArtists Music‘s Matthew Kajcienski and David Lowe, the genius behind the BBC News theme.
Listen to the episode on Gimlet’s site, on iTunes or wherever you get your podcasts.
Thoroughly enjoyed hearing your feature on Every Little Thing! Do you have your marathon playlist posted on your site or a Spotify playlist created? Would love to listen to it!
The show actually posted my playlist on their Twitter account. Here it is: https://twitter.com/eltshow/status/923314838327132160
I really enjoyed the podcast, learning more about how news music is created and the history behind it, plus I also keep a playlist…. a lot of which I like to listen to from this site! Keep it up!
