Episode 333

Having resisted the urge to do a 3-themed show, I instead decided to kick us off with a number of tracks in the what you call your New Age kinda sorta category. Lots of piano…which I’ll mention. When the urge passes we’ll head into somewhat driftier and less piano-y zones. It’s all good, if I do say so m’self.

If I may be so bold as to say so myself, this is one of those episodes that, I feel, exemplifies what makes this show different from many others. There is a range of soundworlds on display here, light and dark, sacred and secular, each unique but for subtle sonic connections that helped guide me through the flow. Close your eyes for this one.

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.
