Live, local music!
Local Motives is WMPG’s long-running live, local music show. Since 1990 we have been broadcasting and recording Maine’s music history! It airs every Friday night from 7:30pm to 9:00pm.

From vaudeville to punk, soul to country, folk to electronic, nearly every type of music has been represented on the show.

WMPG’s music library features almost 1000 of these shows and probably represents the largest collection of local Maine bands available.

Jamie Lebish-Ocean Sol Jazz

Hi Josh and Matt,
It’s Jamie Lebish -writing you on behalf of Ocean Sol Jazz; regarding our appearance on The Local Motives show on December 29th. I wanted to ask if there is an awesome engineer working the live board on the 29th of December? We wanted to opt in for the multi-Track copy for $25.00 as we definitely have had fun, and came out with great recordings. We are very happy to be back on your show! I know load in is at 5:30pm and Sound is 7PM. Start live at 7:30-8:30PM? 1 hour of music or 90 minutes? Also we are a larger band now. Guitar, Bass, Drums, Piano, percussion and female singer. 7 of us. Shannon O’Connor would sing in the broadcast booth? Let me know, Thanks, Jamie and Ocean Sol Jazz.

Hi Josh, I was listening to John Cross’s performance from this past December and found out he had his bassist with him. Something I wasn’t aware of as I couldn’t hear a bass in the podcast’s mix. When I mentioned this the bassist said he could hear the bass in the live mix but somehow it didn’t come through on the broadcast? Would you be ok with looking into this by listening to John Cross’s performance and see if the bass is indeed not there, or so low it’s not that audible? Thanks
