Due to a family emergency we have had to cancel the last Radio Venice show for Season 4 which was due to air on Sunday November 27.
It’s been another fantastic season and we are incredibly thankful for all the fantastic musicians who have performed for us … and for all of you out there … tuning in every week from all over the world!
We will take a break now and return in January 2017 … stay tuned for updates and don’t forget to check out the archives on YouTube or on our website.
Thanks for being a part of Radio Venice – with love from Michael Jost, Tonan Ruiz, Rae Stanton, Roy Edwards and everyone else who has helped us to make this show a reality.

Bill Burnett is one of LA’s most respected singer-songwriters. He has written songs and special material for Bette Midler, Patti Lupone, Tim Curry, Dean Stevens, Pebbles Flintstone, Bamm Bamm Rubble and Casper the Friendly Ghost, to name but a few. Like everyone else, Bill was deeply inspired by the celestial songwriting of Leonard Cohen and is honored to be included in this special tribute radio broadcast.
