Dave’s Lounge On The Radio #60: This Event Will Not Be Silent

Dave’s Lounge On The Radio #59: Falling Back Again

I’m not a fan of Daylight Standard Time. It gets dark far too soon during these cold months, and it disrupts everyone’s sleep schedule. I would like the governments of this planet to pick a time zone and leave it … Continue reading →


Dave’s Lounge On The Radio #58: Works and Reworks

This week’s show features a lot of great new music from a number of familiar faces, an hour of remixes from the early days of the podcast, and a set of tunes from the new Soulection compilation Unite, which benefits … Continue reading →


Dave’s Lounge On The Radio #57: More Free Beats

Last year, I did a show that was two hours of free music from Cold Busted Records. This time around, I’m splitting up the free music between two labels. I’ve got another hour of music from the Bust Free series, … Continue reading →


Dave’s Lounge On The Radio #56: Across The Spectrum

The October 1 broadcast of Dave’s Lounge naturally divided itself into four-song sets of different styles — one alt-pop set, one chill instrumental set, and one slightly more eclectic beat-oriented set, bookended by a couple of very chill tunes. If … Continue reading →


Dave’s Lounge On The Radio #55: No One Has To Know

The September 24 edition of Dave’s Lounge was my first show back in the studio in about a month. So naturally, things got a little rough during the live broadcast. The great thing about podcasts, though, is that if you … Continue reading →


Dave’s Lounge On The Radio #54: Different Ways To Chill

It was a bit of a mad scramble to gather all the music for this week’s show, but I managed, and it turned out pretty good. This playlist focuses more on instrumentals as it goes, and it showcases many different … Continue reading →


Dave’s Lounge On The Radio #53: What You Give Is Coming Back To You

Dave’s Lounge has always been a show about getting away from the struggles of everyday life for a while and just enjoying some music. This week, though, I found it pretty hard to get away from current events, especially since … Continue reading →


Dave’s Lounge On The Radio #52: Living On The Edge

The August 6 broadcast of Dave’s Lounge has some harder edges on it than most episodes, but it still contains a solid amount of chill to help you through your work day. I suspect the coders out there will appreciate … Continue reading →


Dave’s Lounge On The Radio #51: Chill Trap And More

The amount of chill trap I’ve played on Dave’s Lounge has grown over the last few years, so perhaps it’s time I acknowledged it a bit more. The July 30 broadcast of Dave’s Lounge on WHUP opens with a set … Continue reading →


Dave’s Lounge On The Radio #50: Playing Favorites

Some weeks, I look through my inbox and don’t find enough good music to fill the first hour of a radio show. When that happened this week, I decided it was okay to repeat some tunes again, for both the … Continue reading →


Dave’s Lounge On The Radio #49: Cross Section

The July 9 broadcast of Dave’s Lounge on WHUP touches on a wide spectrum of downtempo styles — smooth chilled downtempo, instrumental hip hop-styled beats, and even some reggae and R&B-flavored tunes. Chances are there’s something in here you’ll enjoy, … Continue reading →


Dave’s Lounge On The Radio #48: Independent’s Day 2017

As was the case last year, this year’s Independence Day weekend show celebrates musicians who release their music independently, with no backing from a record label, major or otherwise. The internet has allowed musicians the opportunity to connect with fans … Continue reading →


Dave’s Lounge On The Radio #47: Give Yourself A Present

The June 25 broadcast on Dave’s Lounge on WHUP was, with a few exceptions, heavy on instrumental tracks. It’s heavy on sampled music as well, thanks in no small part to a set from the new Chillhop Records compilation Chillhop … Continue reading →


Dave’s Lounge On The Radio #46: Returning To The Studio

The June 11 broadcast of Dave’s Lounge on WHUP was my first show in the studio in a few weeks, and it featured some new vocal tracks, some new instrumental tracks, and a few tunes from the vault. Live shows … Continue reading →


Dave’s Lounge On The Radio #45: Here And There

So this show was prerecorded, as North Carolina FC, for reasons that completely escape me, decided to kick off its game with the New York Cosmos at 4:00 PM on a Sunday afternoon, right at the hottest time of a … Continue reading →


Dave’s Lounge On The Radio #44: A Cosmic Chill

When Sine Music releases a new compilation, you can be sure that the chill factor in the lounge will increase significantly. That was certainly the case with the May 12 broadcast — with the exception of a small rant at … Continue reading →
