Episode 375

Time to get our hush on with 90 minutes of nice, quiet music. No bumps, no surprises, no stops. One might go so far as to say you could meditate to this one. Don’t get used to it, though…

Let’s head down to the library, dust off some albums and see how they sound. (Spoiler alert: pretty darn good!)

*Probably out of print. You can find copies online, but they’re pricey. And since that money would not go to the artists, I won’t link them here. The link used goes to Tim Story’s site, but it appears he’s not selling this from there, either. So it goes in the library.

Episode 372

It’s the last show of 2022, but we’re not going to look back. Oh no, my friend. We are going to stare straight down the barrel of a fully loaded Holding Tanks and say, with an appropriately unnerving grin, “Let’s see what you’ve got.” Seventeen cuts of goodness, that’s what.
As ever, thank you for being here, whether it’s been the whole year or you’re just figuring out that this is a thing. And for the long-timers…you da best.

Episode 369

Oh, nothing much. Just 90 more minutes of really tasty musical treats. Things get a bit droney for a while, and we spend a good bit of time with contemporary composers. Definitely an episode for those with eclectic tastes. We’re all over the map here. Settle in, open mind.

There are a lot of drone textures in this episode, designed to take you to a deeper place. Okay, some of this gets down into some darkness, but I’ll energize the ride as we get toward the end. Enjoy.

Episode 364

Took a look at the Holding Tanks and the download queue and made an Executive Decision: time to go back to focusing on all the good new stuff I’ve had coming in over the last few months. You haven’t seen the last of the library, but we’ll close those doors for a bit. I promise you won’t mind much.

Episode 361

Maybe you’ve been here for a lazy podcast before–but you’ve never been here for one this lazy. Nothing’s under 25 minutes. Four cuts that run mighty, mighty deep. Drift on, my friends, and I’ll chat with you in about 103 minutes.

Same length as usual but wow, are there a lot of tracks here. This one stays fairly firmly in New Age/contemporary instrumental territory (so, yes, ample amount of piano because that’s what gets sent my way). Clear out the full 90 for this and treat yourself.
