“Songcraft: Spotlight on Songwriters,” a new podcast highlighting in-depth conversations with successful songwriters, launched in January.

“Songcraft” is hosted by Paul Duncan and Scott B. Bomar. Duncan is a producer and ASCAP award-winning songwriter. Bomar is a Grammy-nominated writer, researcher and music historian. The show is aimed at not only songwriters, but pop culture enthusiasts, or as Duncan and Bomar describe them, “fellow music nerds.”

The inaugural episode featured Jim Peterik, founding member of Ides of March and Survivor. He has written or co-written 35 singles that landed on Billboard’s pop chart, including “Hold on Loosely” and “Eye of the Tiger.”

Other songwriters highlighted include current Grammy nominee Brandy Clark, Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member Dallas Frazier, and Spooner Oldham, the keyboardist behind songs including “When A Man Loves A Woman” and “Mustang Sally,” and a writer on “Cry Like A Baby” and “I’m Your Puppet.”

Upcoming podcasts will feature Bill Anderson, Bobby Braddock, Buzz Cason, Jeff Cohen, Jeff Silbar, and more.

Streaming episodes can be heard at The free podcast can also be accessed through the iTunes store. New episodes are released every three weeks.
