Three Song Stories: Bill Metts

Mike Kiniry / WGCU

Normally on Thursdays we focus on the local arts scene, but with most of it on hold, and with the entire WGCU radio team working from home, for now we’re broadcasting episodes of the WGCU podcast Three Song Stories. This week we're listening back to episode 46 with Bill Metts.

Bill is a local sing-songwriter who, when not social distancing, is the driving force behind the not for profit Hope by Song, which helps people whose stories of abuse, addiction, homelessness or PTSD have not yet been heard by inspiring them to tell their stories through song.

Mike Kiniry is producer of Gulf Coast Live, and co-creator and host of the WGCU podcast Three Song Stories: Biography Through Music. He first joined the WGCU team in the summer of 2003 as an intern while studying Communication at Florida Gulf Coast University.
Richard Chin Quee has been WGCU’s technical producer on many of our programs, including With the Wild Things, Florida Book Reviews, and our own live call-in show, Gulf Coast Live! since 2006.
