Light On Radio With Joy Oladokun

There are good songs, and then there are great songs. But what makes a song transcend the ordinary into something inspiring, something life-changing? Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Joy Oladokun explores this very phenomenon on Light On Radio, a show dedicated to the ins and outs of songcraft. On each episode, Oladokun will highlight songs of all shapes and sizes—new and old, popular and obscure, hits and B-sides—across intimate, contemplative conversations that also give listeners useful and thought-provoking tools to dig into what makes their own favorite songs tick. Oladokun couldn’t be better qualified to lead such an exploration, as the Arizona-raised artist has earned acclaim far and wide for her own music—particularly her 2021 major-label debut album in defense of my own happiness, which landed on a number of year-end “best of” lists. She’s been a musician since age 10, drawing early inspiration from Tracy Chapman, Bob Marley, and Lauryn Hill, and currently counts Maren Morris and Penny & Sparrow among her collaborators and admirers.
