Beyond a Song with host Rich Reardin. Rich hosts this extraordinary weekly radio series that features discussions with World Class musicians, producers, audio engineers, etc., about their lives and making music. Beyond a Song first appeared in 2005 with the original series "In Search of a Song" with host Jason Wilber (John Prine's longtime lead guitarist). Beyond a Song would like to mention here our profound sadness at the passing of John Prine, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Jason Wilber lent infinite support to the show theme, it's original production, and concept. His work with John Prine for a quarter of a century inspired the interest in talking with musical guests about the art of songwriting. Heretofore, our show is dedicated to John Prine, and continues to be inspired by his life and music. Specifically this show highlights the guest artist's early musical experiences and influences, their creative process, and the stories behind some of their songs. Beyond a Song also explores the lives of others who contribute to the making of music through recording, producing, or audio engineering. Most pieces in the series are "Evergreen" and can be played any time.
