In January 2013, 30 Minute Music Hour host/producer Andy Moore announced that PHOX, an emerging musical group with roots in Baraboo, would perform for our little half-hour music program. His memo to WPT staff read, “Our show has also featured acts that will soon “break out” to national and international audiences. PHOX, a vocal-centric pop band from Madison, is surely one.”

By debuting their album on “First Listen,” PHOX joins the company of Willie Nelson, Bon Iver, Mavis Staples, David Byrne and plenty more established artists who have launched albums via NPR.
