Capital Soundtrack Is On Hiatus

By WAMU Staff

We’re plotting the next phase of our local music initiative Capital Soundtrack. During this brainstorming period, we are putting the project on hold.

What D.C.-area music would you like to hear on WAMU 88.5? Send us an email or fill out our song submission form.

We thank you, Washingtonians, for supporting public radio and your local music community. Capital Soundtrack will return in the coming months.

What does Washington sound like? Capital Soundtrack, a new music project from WAMU 88.5, explores that question. This summer, we’re turning over our airwaves to musicians from D.C., Maryland and Virginia. We’re doing that by overhauling the sounds you hear during our talk shows and news breaks, and dedicating all of our interlude music to local artists. So while you take in the news that matters to you — whether during Morning Edition with Matt McCleskey or The Kojo Nnamdi Show — the atmosphere of the day's events will be shaped by sounds from our region. Capital Soundtrack is our way of amplifying our local musicians and tapping into the rich and diverse sounds of this place we call home. Let WAMU connect you with the sounds of Washington.
