Rogue Sounds: Public Support For Music To Return


The music scene is mostly hit-and-miss these days. VERY few opportunities exist to hit a live show in person. And so musicians and music lovers mostly miss, listening to recording music or watching performances online.

Josh Gross, music creator and critic, visits with a new edition of Rogue Sounds. Josh made a case recently for busking--street music--as a safe and productive way to get live music going again.

In some communities, it would require changes in ordinances or at least police procedures. Josh returns with further thoughts on community support for live music—beyond busking—as we emerge (we hope) from the pandemic.
