WUNC's Songs We Love - a podcast from WUNC Music

Today we launch WUNC's Songs We Love Podcast. It's where we look at the stories behind some of the songs in rotation on our 24-hour music discovery stream, WUNC Music.  

One song that's in the WUNC Music mix right now is "Black Leaf" by John Paul White.  

White used to be in the band The Civil Wars but has since branched out on his own. His song "Black Leaf" is one recorded for his solo album "Beulah."

In this first podcast, Eric and John Paul talk about music inspiration, song writing and more.

Make sure to subscribe to our podcast to hear more stories as we release new ones over the coming months.

'Ice water...I saw her... I just liked the way [these words] sounded together and I just started thinking what did I see her do?' - John Paul White on writing 'Black Leaf'
