Who wouldn’t want to live in a world of beautiful music? Well, many of us have a soundtrack playing in our heads all day long. A song you remember when you think of something - like the one you heard over and over as you drove to the beach way back when. Or the one that reminds you of someone or some place special.
Tagwhat’s music channel puts a new spin on our love of music, by placing stories about music, musicians, and anything else music at places - they places where we think those stories will make the most impact. Like all stories in Tagwhat, these stories are told in words, photos, videos, and, of course, audio. Here’s what we mean:
A unique postcard comes with every story. Here’s one from the Portland, Oregon high school that Elliott Smith went to.
We love the music channel in Tagwhat and hope you will too. Why not spend today exploring the places around you through some music colored glasses?
