Episode 310

This episode does two things. One, it weaves it way between the Newish queue and the library–and by that I mean, track by track. And two, it goes all over the dang place, musically speaking. Buckle up. It’s a pretty wild ride, and I’m not getting in the way. We’ll talk in 90.

*A fun story about your clueless host–but let it be said that I do get some unusual album titles here, so bear that in mind. You will hear me say that this album is called “s/t”–because that’s the way it imported in when I downloaded it, and who am I to question such things? It wasn’t until I looked for the link to the album (weeks later) that I understood that “s/t” was not the actual title but meant…yup…”self-titled.”

Episode 307

Rhythm, a word I just had to type five times to spell it correctly, kicks off this episode. In the soft, pillowy center we’ll coast along with Mr Tom Eaton. The last stretch curves over toward neo-classical land a bit. Hang on.

Sometimes you just need to drift a while. We’ll kick off doing exactly that, then very gently ease the throttle upward. I think you’re going to like how this one ends. (No, not the bit where I get talky…just the stuff before that.) We’ve got peace…and we’ve got power.

Episode 303


From a deep world-music groove to get things started, we’ll course through some shadowy spots, spend 30 minutes with Robert Scott Thompson, then find our way eventually to some jazz influences and modern classical. Quite a mix, gotta say. It’s just how we do.

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.

**I got this via snail mail, and when I went to look for a link, it appears Mr St Hugh has pulled down most of his online musical presences. You can find this album on Spotify. On principle, I won’t link there.

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.
