David Pericone started Banjo Talk in 2007 with the idea of interviewing banjo players and people in the banjo industry, while allowing listeners the ability to call in during the live show to ask questions. The show quickly grew to an audience of thousands of listeners to the live show, with many more to the archived podcasts. David initially started with a shoestring budget, not really knowing if anyone would be interested in listening to a talk show about banjos. Within a short period of time Banjo Talk grew so big that it became synonymous with him. It has been his baby ever since. The show has now been heard around the world.
