Hometown Sounds is devoted to showing the world how DC rocks. We produce a biweekly podcast and blog to share the songs and videos that we love, made by residents of the DMV, to their neighbors and potential fans.
Hometown Sounds began as a monthly DJ night at the Argonaut on H St. NE in 2008, focusing on a diverse mix of local music. Paul Vodra spun the tunes for a year before a kitchen fire temporarily shut down the Argonaut and canceled their weekend DJ nights. Vodra regrouped and changed Hometown Sounds into a 24/7 internet music station. With the addition of producer Tony Porreco, the station changed to a podcast that has gone strong since 2012.
