As promised, this time around I went into the playlist spreadsheet and found a group of fine musicians who have only been played once on the show. And believe me, there are plenty more available for another show like this. In the meantime, enjoy.

Episode 139

August 14, 2014

A two-part voyage for you this time out. We’ll start in somewhat experimental territory, eventually making our way into piano-based atmospheres. A short talky break and then we’re off again, borne on analog synth…to start.

Ever notice that there are differing levels of “quiet”? This fairly quiet podcast sets a pretty good example of the idea, I think….

Episode 137

July 17, 2014

I usually put together podcasts over the course of several days–especially in summer, when my office/studio becomes oppressively hot. Now and then, however, the mood strikes to lay out a long stretch in one sitting, finding just the right pieces and hearing nice connections in the flow. For this episode, that was the case starting from the Peter DiPhillips track on. The lights were low, there was wine on hand, and the music took its own direction. Enjoy.

Episode 136

June 25, 2014

I decided to do a “show-by-shuffle” and play whatever was coming out of the speakers whenever I came back into my office over the course of a couple of days. I made one or two executive decisions to skip a track here and there. Overall, though, you end up with 20 delicious tunes and plenty of variety. Dig in! No interruptions!

Episode 135

June 11, 2014

Well, happy birthday to me! The podcast starts its sixth year in production with three sets of some hand-picked favorites. As always, pulling a dozen “favorites” out of a library of nearly 10,000 tracks isn’t easy. I hope you enjoy the ride, even if I am a bit overly talky in this one. (No interruptions next time, promise!)

I got so soft-brained from the last set that when listing track names at the end I mistakenly kept saying “after” rather than “before.” But you’re smart enough to have figured out what I meant, right? And if not–hey, look! A playlist!

And here’s the complete version of “Hypny Birthdrone,” if you’re interested.
