Join MPB on a voyage of musical discovery as we seek out out new, unknown acts to share. Unlike many of the shows you might find on commercial television, we don't present music as a competition. We know that it's a community steeped in collaboration as a means of survival. We give performers the opportunity to present their original songs in a way that fits their own musical vision.
Authors, athletes, entertainers. They are people we admire. Politicians, civic leaders, inventors. They are people who influence our daily lives and our futures. Join MPB as we engage these fascinating people for in-depth conversation about their lives, their efforts, and their visions. Whether they call Mississippi home or are just passing through, these icons offer insight into our world. From businessmen to benefactors, you’ll get to know them all on Conversations.
