Songspeak - the Art and Craft of Songwriting - Jim Foglesong

Songspeak - Conversations on the Art and Craft of Songwriting - Jim Foglesong.

Tennessee MTSU Recording Industry professor Hal Newman, and occasional guest hosts, interview ASCAP songwriters.

Topics include the process of writing songs, how one becomes a songwriter, tips for being a successful songwriter in the music industry. Songwriters also perform a few of their songs. The programs are recorded in front of MTSU students enrolled in Recording Industry courses. A question and answer session follows each discussion.

Legendary Record Executive Jim Fogleson seriously considered a career in baseball as opposed to music, but baseball's loss is our gain. Coming up from the ranks as a singer, Jim shares stories and insights gleamed over many years as one of the leading lights in the Recording Industry. Guest Host is our own Executive Producer John Briggs, who brings his insightful interview style and a grand sense of Music History to the show.
