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 294


A big bolt of energy kicks off this episode. I’ll layer in some analog thrills, and tie it together with a touch or two of quiet. Variety is the spice of podcast life, I say!

Let’s start this one in the library as I continue to dig through those tasty tracks that caught my ear during some casual listening. We’ve set aside 30 minutes for a deep dive into the Mingosphere, then we’ll nab a a couple from the newer stuff to ease it all to a close.

Episode 292


I get some pretty weird music around here sometimes, and it needs to be heard, too. So we start there and journey forth. If it’s not particular your cup of joy, stick around–we’ll pay a visit to our old friend analog around the middle part, and close off with some long drifts. No stops on this one.
