Royalty Free Music for Podcasts

My friend Stevie Puckett interviewed me about podcasting a few weeks back.  Though the interview is just for her subscribers at  Tech Savvy Career Coach , I’ll share one of the deliverables.   I did a bit of research and updated the list of royalty free music for podcasting. I can’t guarantee that all music found at these sites is all royalty free, but each site on the list does have at least some royalty free offerings. Remember royalty free does not mean free of charge, but free of royalty charges per play.   Yet I was able to find some completely free sources of music as well.  Also, many do not charge the even the flat fee up front fee for non-commercial uses only for commercial users. I’ve marked the sites charging fees with a dollar sign.

So check out the fine print at each site and add some life to your podcasts! And if you find some additional sources, please add them in your feedback to this blog.
