Songs We Love is a series and a podcast that looks at the stories behind some of the songs we're playing on our new music discovery stream, WUNC Music.

Right now we are in the middle of a series featuring artists from Yep Roc Records. The label, headquartered in Hillsborough, NC, continues to celebrate its 20th anniversary. We're commemorating by highlighting some of their artists.

On this episode, Eric Hodge chats with Kim Richey and Chuck Prophet about their collaboration 'Whistle On Occasion' from Richey's new album Edgeland.

Richey recalls the first time the two worked together on song. It was the first time she had used a beat machine and she couldn't get enough of it. Prophet felt it was best to wait until they had fleshed the song out to add a beat, but Richey was impatient.

"When do we get the beats?!"
