Music in America would sound very different without public radio.

Local public radio stations take creative risks, nurture new talent, and give emerging artists a chance to be heard. They celebrate traditional music genres like classical and jazz, and partner with local music organizations to take these art forms to the next level. And they play a key role in their local music economies, sustaining and growing the careers of musicians by connecting them to local listeners.

Say #thankspublicradio to your favorite local station during Public Radio Music Month this April for playing the music you love.
