Echoes is a daily two-hour music soundscape, distributed by Public Radio International and broadcast on 120 radio stations from Maine to Hawaii. With host John Diliberto, a writer for BillboardPulse and other magazines, Echoes brings together a wide array of styles, from acoustic to electronic, jazz to space music, the avant-garde to rock.  Echoes is a sound that is cross-cultural and trans-millennial, merging cultures and forms, technology and tradition, the ancient past and the possible future.

In addition to the many recordings heard on  Echoes, we also produce interview features with popular modern music figures such as Brian Eno,  Moby,  Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush and Enya, as well as less well-known known composers such as  Laurie Anderson,  Steve Roach, and  The Orb. Echoes also produces Living Room Concerts, live performances recorded in musician’s homes or studios and broadcast on Echoes. Concerts have included  Pat Metheny,  Yo-Yo Ma, Dead Can Dance, Ólafur  Arnalds,  Air,  Loreena McKennitt  and many more.
