*Probably out of print. You can find copies online, but they’re pricey. And since that money would not go to the artists, I won’t link them here. The link used goes to Tim Story’s site, but it appears he’s not selling this from there, either. So it goes in the library.
It’s the last show of 2022, but we’re not going to look back. Oh no, my friend. We are going to stare straight down the barrel of a fully loaded Holding Tanks and say, with an appropriately unnerving grin, “Let’s see what you’ve got.” Seventeen cuts of goodness, that’s what. As ever, thank you for being here, whether it’s been the whole year or you’re just figuring out that this is a thing. And for the long-timers…you da best.
Whither shall we wander this time around? To groves of musical grooviness and gardens of unearthly aural delight? Sure, you could put it that way. Or we could just call it 90 in the Holding Tank, drenching ourselves in good new music.
*You will hear me pronounce this as “reeds” because I am a monolingual numbskull who often can’t be bothered to do some reading about the things I play on my show. It is “ray-days,” essentially, and is Spanish for “networks.” In my defense, “rede” is an archaic English word meaning counsel or story. So maybe it was just my limited readings of Chaucer sneaking up on me and not the fact that I am myself somewhat archaic.
Oh, nothing much. Just 90 more minutes of really tasty musical treats. Things get a bit droney for a while, and we spend a good bit of time with contemporary composers. Definitely an episode for those with eclectic tastes. We’re all over the map here. Settle in, open mind.

Resisting the urge to do the obvious theme show, I instead opted to take you deep into the Holding Tank again. We kick off with some beats, wind down to drifts, and get a bit acoustic on the back half. There’s a quick stop in the middle, just to irk some listeners and see who sticks around. ;-)
Took a look at the Holding Tanks and the download queue and made an Executive Decision: time to go back to focusing on all the good new stuff I’ve had coming in over the last few months. You haven’t seen the last of the library, but we’ll close those doors for a bit. I promise you won’t mind much.
