Episode 43: Joni Deutsch Works on Crafting the Perfect Mixtape on WV Public Radio

Whether working for NPR’s Mountain Stage, or hosting her radio show, A Change of Tune, through West Virginia Public Broadcasting, Joni Deutsch is forging a path in public radio. As she selects musicians to feature and puts together shows, Joni strives to craft the perfect mix tape. She also highlights people doing great things under the radar, like West Virginia musicians and women both on stage and in the broadcast booth.

On this episode of femchord we talk to Joni about her work, her love of West Virginia music, and how we can foster more recognition for women in public radio. We also feature music from artists who have performed on Mountain Stage or who have been featured on A Change of Tune.
