About This Show
Show Info: The US100 invites you to join an epic journey across the American musical landscape. In Winter last year, Jarek Zaba embarked on what he thought would simply be an extended holiday in the United States. Fast forward 9 months he has found his days transformed as he has become full time curator of the US100: 100 songs he has picked at the heart of America, based on the geography of the trip he made. Through these podcasts and his website, theus100.com, Jarek will explain why he has chosen the tracks in question and what they mean to him, as he will attempts to unearth the fascinating stories behind the artists and movements who made them happen. You will hear the tracks themselves, and Jarek is also ambitiously trying to contact each US100 artist: to bestow them with their official US100 membership certificate. Whether exploring country, soul, folk, metal, blues, jazz, or hip hop, Jarek will be joined by trusty Producer BD and lovable fall guy, Chris Kelly - specifically chosen for his lack of familiarity with the subject. Batches of songs will be released periodically through the website and podcast, so be sure to subscribe and follow on social media to get the latest US100 updates.
