ArtBeat Radio

ArtBeat Radio is a potpourri of short podcasts featuring the ideas, thoughts, and creativity of adults with disabilities. ABR is produced and distributed by the students of Arts & Services for Disabled in the greater Los Angeles area. Visit to view art, learn more about upcoming events, or to download podcasts.

ArtBeat Radio Covers a song by Ryan Gosling’s ghoulish band, Dead Man’s Bones.  Because we are just. So. Hip.

Jamond is back with his take on the song that made Coldplay the biggest British band since…well, since that other big British band.

New Episode: The Love Song Radio Program

Cuddle up with someone special this Valentine’s Day and enjoy the Love Song Radio Program from ArtBeat Radio, where callers dedicate their favorite love songs to the ones they love.

New Episode: Hopes and Dreams

In this episode, we examine the mysterious connection between sleeping, dreaming, hoping, and wishing.
Through song, poetry, interviews, and listener submissions, we take a look at what it means to dream, and why dreaming is important

Call for Collaboration!!

ArtBeat Radio is busily working on a new episode all about hopes and dreams, and we need your help!  This is your chance to be a part of our podcast!  Please roll tape while you fill in the blanks of these three statements: 

In the future, I hope I _____________ .

In the future, I hope we ___________ .

In the future, I hope the world _____________ . 

We are looking for a variety of short, honest, engaging answers that need not conform to any specific idea or theme.  No answer is wrong! (Unless it is riddled with profanity or offensive language.)

Content does not need to be professional, or even thoroughly edited.  We love the organic sounds that come from your phone’s Voice Memos or your computer’s webcam.  We only ask that files be audio only.  

Submissions can be  emailed through September 3 to

Thanks, and have fun!

Nature in the City

Our summer intern, Rebecca, put this podcast together over the last two months. She travelled with some students to the Madrona Marsh Preserve in Torrance, in order to spend some time enjoying nature and interacting with the community.  They recorded their time together, and this podcast is the result!  Thanks for all your hard work, Rebecca!

—Crave the Wave

We’ve been experimenting GarageBand lately, exploring all the sonic options available through the program.  The ArtBeat Radio staff has been having lots of fun exploring their inner DJ’s.  Here’s our first attempt at electronic music—with a little bit of live thrown in.  Ride the sonic wave, and hang ten! 

Here’s a preview for a new Friday project we’re calling: ‘Jamond Pearson sings the Indie Hits,’ where you’ll get to hear Jamond’s take on the latest, hippest music that all the young whippersnappers are listening to.
