Carlos Garcia's Sound Theory Live Canceled by WDNA, Only Days After Fourth Anniversary
|Thomas Wynn & the Believers in the studio for Sound Theory Live.|
Only days after celebrating its fourth anniversary, Sound Theory Live has been canceled by public radio station WDNA.
Hosted by Carlos Garcia, owner of The Stage and Miami New Times' Best FM Personality of 2010, this weekly show "geared towards promoting the great local musicians by showcasing their talents live on the radio" will be missed by many Miami music scene veterans, neophytes, and fans.
Just ask Dr. Ed Calle, Palo!, or Locos Por Juana.

"I am saddened to hear that Sound Theory Live will be looking for a new home," Miami jazz man and three-time Latin Grammy nominee Dr. Ed Calle laments.
"With Sound Theory Live," he says, "Carlos provides listeners unique artistic and personal insights into the musicians who shape, define, and transform the dynamic Miami sound."
Palo!'s Steve Roitstein is just as bummed by the show's cancelation.
"The Sound Theory Live radio show met an important need in the South Florida music scene," he points out. "It gave bands like Palo! a chance to perform live on the radio and to answer pertinent questions from knowledgeable interviewers.
"This kind of platform is very rare for independent artists, even when traveling to major U.S. cities. The unfortunate cancellation of Sound Theory Live leaves a huge void in our musical landscape. I hope to hear the show on the air again very soon."
