Episode 302


Hold on, we’re heading into theme territory. Take a quick glance at the playlist–or, hey, just listen to the first 30 seconds of the show–and you’ll have the theme firmly in hand. Ain’t rocket science. Let’s go. Let’s go.

Episode 299


Music can’t cure the thing that’s currently ailing us collectively, but I hope this 90 minutes’ worth at least takes your mind off it for a bit. There are fresh tracks in front, delicious library cuts in the back, and in the middle we’ll stroll through a half hour of contemporary classical offerings from Bruno Sanfilippo. Take care of yourselves, and enjoy.

Episode 295


Well, I didn’t mean to make a show with lots of piano, but whither goest the flow, so go we. Max Corbacho escorts us through 30 too-short minutes in the Spotlight, and the last third keeps us nicely chilled, if I do say so myself.

Episode 288


All around the interwebtubenets, podcasts and blogs are ladling out their “Best of” lists for 2019. Yay, them. If that’s your year-end bag, you should listen to those, too. But I’ve decided to leave that to them and just give you some more Newish queue cuts to drop into. Enjoy, and thanks for being here this year.
