FODfest just launched a new weekly radio show called the FODcast. Hosted by Todd Mack & Lynnette Najimy, it features live cuts from FODfest concerts and is an eclectic mix of music, ideas, and cultures.
If you haven’t heard about this great project, FODfest began in 2005 as a backyard jam honoring Daniel Pearl who believed in the power of music to connect people. It has since grown into an international concert tour bringing together musicians and audiences in concerts, events, and programs based on the resonating belief in music as a universal language. They just released their Spring 2011 schedule, so find out if there’ll be a jam near you.
