WAMU/Capital Soundtrack


WAMU debuted Capital Soundtrack in 2016, a project that creates a daily music playlist with tracks from local musicians that is played as interstitial material throughout the day. Each day, a WAMU staffer makes a playlist of 20 musical segments of varying lengths and stocks it with a variety of musical genres to accommodate varying moods following stories. The station tries to limit previously played material to 1/3 of the list and posts the playlist to the website.
