WUCF on Thursday announced the launch of a new podcast, "Pivoted," that will feature conversations with local musicians as they adjust to the strange and difficult reality of being a working musician during the coronavirus pandemic.

Kendra Weaver is the producer and host of the podcast, and the guest list is a pretty eclectic group of music lifers, including Jeff Rupert, Carol Stein, Benoit Glazer, and Sisaundra Lewis.

Local musicians are in a tough spot right now. Live music is basically over for the foreseeable future, studio recording is a logistical nightmare, music lessons and instruction are transitioning to the virtual realm … there will certainly be a lot of ground to cover in these conversations.

WUCF has already posted up two episodes of "Pivoted" online with Carol Stein and Jeff Rupert for immediate listening, and a new episode will be made available every Thursday running for the next six weeks.
