Now in its 21st year, Beale Street Caravan is a recent recipient of the ASCAP Deem Taylor Award for Radio Broadcast.

Forty original programs are produced each year.

Beale Street Caravan is also distributed via Content Depot, NPR Worldwide, Australia's CBAA, Soundcloud, and available as a podcast.
