This coming week marks the season 1 finale of Radio Film School. In honor of our first season, here are the five most played tunes on the show.
Help Us Find Emerging Musicians
Free Music Archive is a great resource for finding creative commons music. But I would love for the show to be a place where emerging musicians can display their music. If you, or someone you know, is a musician who has the kind of music that you think would be a great fit for the podcast, and if you’re looking to get some exposure for your tunes, shoot us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now, on with today’s picks.

Please Listen Carefully by Jahzzar (CC BY-SA). This is sort of the official theme song for the show. If I were to have a weekly theme, this would be it. I frequently use it during the pre-roll segments and sponsor spots. By far, the song most used on the show.
Boulevard St. Germaine by Jahzzar (CC BY-SA). I love using this piece for comedic segments on the show. Technically, if you don’t include the season 1 preview, this was the first song used on the very first episode that was posted, “What the Hell Are You.”
Gettin’ Paid Part II by Alec’s Band (CC BY). This was the theme song I used for my short lived podcast “The Solo Creative.” It was a more traditional 1-on-1 conversation style podcast. I now use this little ditty when I have Ron-on-1 bonus Radio Film School episodes.
Cylinder Six by Chris Zabriskie (CC BY). Zabriskie is easily one of the top 3 most utilized musicians on the show. His ambient music is tailor-made for pensive, thought-provoking podcasts about existential issues of creativity.
Man With a Golden Soul by Cullah (CC BY-SA). I don’t know for certain if this is one of the most used songs. I know for sure I’ve used it at least three times (the season 1 preview, Of Fathers and Filmmaking Pt. 1 and the Tarantino episode). This is one of my favorite songs ever used on the show. It may actually be my favorite. I feel it, more than any other song invokes the tone I most envision for the show. I originally found it when searching Free Music Archive for a Tarantino-esque vibe. I hit pay dirt when I found this baby. In fact, Cullah (along with Jahzzar and Chris Zabriskie) are the three MVPs of musicians on Radio Film School.
