Singer and songwriter Joy Oladokun launches "Light on Radio," a new bi-weekly radio series airing on Apple Music's live-streaming radio station Apple Music Country. On the program, Oladokun celebrates music's power to bring people together and shines a light on her favorite artists, songwriters and storytellers.

"This is a radio show about life, love, mental health, and good tunes. I'm really excited to share songs that I love and songs that I've forgotten about and also to talk about things that really matter to me. I think that music is this great medium that we have to say things that really mean a lot in ways that aren't as offensive to the palate, so let's have some hard but good discussions," said Oladokun in the premiere episode.

She addsed, "I really do believe with my whole heart that music is one of the means that we have to help each other and heal each other and it's this really spiritual cosmic force that can be used for great good if you're paying attention. I'm gonna play songs that I love and play songs that have helped me through hard times or play songs that have asked hard questions of me or the people who wrote them."

In the inaugural episode, Oladokun talks mental health, current events, the importance of self care and being influenced by the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Maren Morris and Aretha Franklin. She also plays an eclectic mix of tracks from Brittany Howard, Bob Dylan, Nirvana, The Chicks, Michael Kiwanuka and more.

With Light on Radio, Oladokun joins the ranks of Tim McGraw, Fancy Hagood, Rissi Palmer, Dave Cobb, Morgan Evans, Dierks Bentley and Maren Morris, all of whom have helmed original radio shows on Apple Music Country.
