Bigger audiences are back seeing live music in person, and with this winter's omicron surge in the rearview mirror, local music venues are hopeful this summer will be one for the record books.

But that doesn't mean they've thrown out what they learned during the pandemic. What worked during the depths of our isolation can still be an important part of the offering now.

We take your calls and talk about the future of the local music scene with Matt Smith, managing director of Club Passim, and JJ Gonson, owner of ONCE Lounge, formerly in Somerville.

This segment aired on March 30, 2022.
