If you’re looking for a podcast that practically gives you a backstage pass to candid conversations with musicians and producers from the Boston area, you’re in luck! Chuck Clough and Ronnie Hirschberg, hosts of Above the Basement, give listeners a rare opportunity to get a fly-on-the-wall perspective of the featured guests’ lives and stories.
Named “Podcast of the Year” at the 2020 Boston Music Awards, this show reveals why Boston’s music scene is just as unique as its history, and listeners learn what it takes to make great music.
I am grateful for the access the hosts give us to the stories only musicians can tell. Guests share the hardships they have faced and why they love what they do.
From episode to episode, there’s never a dull moment. The passion that drives those who are shaping Boston’s music community is contagious. I am constantly amazed at the caliber of guests they interview week after week, and I love finding out what gets them fired up.
The insight we get into the personalities of various talented artists is priceless. How often do music fans get a look behind the curtain to understand what celebrities think and feel, both on- and off-stage?
I’m already eagerly anticipating their next guest, whoever that might be. This podcast is definitely worth a listen!
