About This Section
SONGMINE is a show for the pop/alternative music geek. The show’s mission is to give deserved and more in-depth conversation to “good” songs. Riding the edge between pop success and “deep cuts,” SONGMINE digs deeper for less mainstream but very deserving music based on the background and knowledge of the three hosts: Dr. Roberto Avant-MierAndy Rosalesand Christopher Telles.

Sometimes heated but always authentic, discussion dictates the theme of the selections of songs played during each episode. SONGMINE invites the audience to dig just a bit deeper to keep up with lively conversation about music, and music matters, as well as to enjoy a gold mine of special thematic songs.
