Public Radio Music Day is the brainchild of the noncomMUSIC Alliance. It celebrates public radio's role in connecting musicians, performers and artists with the public radio audiences who enjoy and support their music. The alliance says they are dedicated to boosting the work of noncommercial public radio as an essential component of music discovery, curation, preservation, performance, and community.
