Hanuman Welch has been Apple Music’s leading editorial news anchor since Apple Music’s launch. In 2020, he became the face and voice of ALT CTRL With Hanuman, shining a light on forward-leaning, boundary-pushing music from around the world, as featured on Apple Music’s popular ALT CTRL playlist. ALT CTRL is a home for artists (and like-minded listeners) who see the world a bit differently, whether they gravitate towards guitars, electronics, or a modern collision of the two. On the show, Hanuman provides unique context around the playlist and its eclectic range of music, speaking to artists as disparate as The 1975, Billie Eilish, and White Reaper—always helping listeners to connect the dots between them. It airs weekly on Apple Music 1 Fridays at 7 a.m. PT.
