His performances have been broadcast on radio throughout the United States, as well as in Australia, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Holland, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. For Naxos he has recorded two CDs of the piano music of Dave Brubeck (8.559212 and 8.559301). Since 1989, John Salmon has been on the faculty of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
