Let’s move into the new year with some new (more or less) music. There’s a spot about a half-hour in where I hand it all off to some piano players for a bit. They seem like nice people. The last 45 or so is a nice, deep drift that will send you places.

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.

Episode 304


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.

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.
