Series produced by Hwy. 61 Productions

Into the Music is a series of artist and event profiles which connect the currents of 20th century music evolution. The series is created by Hwy 61 Productions using the metaphor of the highway system to illustrate the junction points and crossroads of popular music's development.

Songs are connected with focused narration of :30-1:15 using tasteful ramp and fade for aesthetic continuity and time efficiency. The show is an advanced introduction and consumer guide intended to enhance enjoyment and awareness

Each of the over 150 hour-long episodes of the series include a :60 intro, 25-29 minute 1st segment, and a 25-29 minute 2nd segment. The total time of each episode is always between 53-56 minutes including the intro.

Depending on the impact of the artist (or record company or event etc.) and the length of the songs, the profiles are either 1-part, 2-parts or 3-parts. Stations can choose to air the parts in a unified block of programming or with the sequential parts broadcast separately on a weekly basis.

Classic Blues, R & B, Soul, Country, and Folk selections surround the central core of "Classic Rock". Available profiles range from historical figures like Robert Johnson and Hank Williams to Chuck Berry to Led Zeppelin to R.E.M. along with specialty features like Chess Records and the Woodstock Festival etc.
