Steam Radio Syndicate is happy to announce it’s second broadcast! LIVE from it’s home on the tug boat, SRS has put together another great hour of story telling with musicians, authors, and poets creating songs and stories inspired by an old American folk song. This hour will be based in “Big Rock Candy Mountain”.



Steam Radio Syndicate is the name we’re giving the space itself as it is built out towards being a broadcast studio and venue.  At the moment, the Great American Myth concept is the only project on the table.  In the future the space may be host to many other audio-based projects, podcasts, music, readings.  Partnering in this project are Mark Fisher and Matt Stein, who run Green Anchors the old shipbuilding yard that is the current homebase of the Tugboat (more info on their project at   The venue and broadcast spaces on the boat will remain as the forward sections of the boat are developed into a hostal run by the non-profit Green Anchors.  Eventually when the hostal and the venue/studio spaces are complete they will compliment each other; Green Anchors providing comfortable lodging for visiting artists and Steam Radio Syndicate’s venue as a place to host concerts open to travelers at the hostal and visitors of the Green Anchors project.
