If it’s made in Baltimore, you’ll hear it on Baltimore Hit Parade — every Tuesday at 9 p.m. and Sunday at 4 p.m.
Baltimore Hit Parade showcases the best of the Baltimore music scene through album cuts, live performances and interviews. Hosted by Sam Sessa, formerly The Baltimore Sun’s entertainment editor, the show is a weekly tour through Charm City’s music scene. Anything is fair game, including rock, pop, blues, bluegrass and experimental music.
With features like the Baltimore Backtrack, Sessa digs into the city’s music history to profile bands from decades past. And Baltimore musicians often select their favorite songs from fellow Baltimore musicians with Players’ Picks.
But WTMD’s commitment to Baltimore music goes beyond Baltimore Hit Parade. The station plays Baltimore bands every day, side-by-side with national artists. We believe quality music should be heard by all – no matter where it comes from.
Since he began hosting the show in 2006, Sam Sessa has interviewed hundreds of Baltimore bands, covered events such as South by Southwest and the Virgin Mobile Festival and contributed music news stories to the station’s daily shows.
