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!

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.

Welcome to 2020, everyone. Wow, that sounds so futuristic… We’ll kick off the year with some uptempo cuts, spend 30 with our friend Colin Rayment, then knock a few items off the “must play” list hanging in the library. By the way, time to take off that New Year’s Eve party hat…
