Why, what do we have here? It’s a new radio hour! This one only took 3 months to assemble. Hey, we’re up to #18. Only 6 more to go in this finite series of 24 podcasts.

What is this one good for? I’d say this one is good accompaniment for:

  • embarking on an all-night train ride
  • reading Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  • curing leather
  • riding bicycles at night at the same exact speed
  • synchronizing with the film L’ascenseur pour L’echafaud
  • eating rum balls
  • dreaming of galloping horses
  • smeary scribbling in pen & ink
  • marow-warming hot toddies
  • restless nights

Selections include: a neo-folk mash-up cover of an iconic disco track, a chamber-pop cover of a classic Genesis single, Greek rebetika, new new age, Pacific Northwest drone, needle-in-the-arm country, slow-burn Icelandic chamber-pop, Argentinian experimental, Krautrock, Japanese new classical, summertime songs from Isle of Wight, African mass, Mbira music from Oregon inspired by Bolivian melodies, Field recordings made in a studio.

    Enjoyed in a woke-up-to early while girlfriend leaves for Yoga living in India with no electricity brownout kind of morning. It worked as advertised!

    I have the hardest time coming up with words to describe how exquisitely happy your radio hours make me, but they do. For the music I would have never heard…muchas gracias.
