'Maron' Theme Song Widget and Original Soundtrack Songlist (PopMatters Premiere)

PopMatters Staff

PopMatters is pleased to share the theme song to the IFC series Maron.

If any claim to being the king of comedy in the social networking era means mastering multiple media platforms, then Marc Maron might just have the last laugh. In a career that has cut across various formats, from being a stand-up veteran to a gadfly talk-radio personality to the host of one of the most downloaded comedy podcasts around, WTF, Maron is now tackling TV with his own eponymous sitcom on IFC. Adding to his multimedia mini-empire is the original soundtrack to Maron, which features the likes of Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Hospitality, and Obits.

PopMatters is pleased to share Maron’s theme song, which is available via the widget posted here. The Maron original soundtrack is out on June 18 via L.A. label White Iris. Maron airs Fridays at 10 PM/9 PM Central on IFC.
