Is the quiet of the new digs seeping into the podcast? If it is, I think we can probably agree that it wouldn’t be a bad thing at all. The show doesn’t start all that quietly, but we’ll certainly get there before we’re through. Download mp3 Start David Gerard & Dana Colley, Life Without A […]

How shall we start the new year? How about with some music? Figured that might be a good idea. This is an uninterrupted flow, but has both the new stuff and the library jams.

Compilation albums. I don’t review them, but I receive them. And I like them. As much as I enjoy settling in with a big, album-length dose of one artist, I also like the tasty variety pack that is the compilation. Great way to discover artists who’ve never sent work to me for review. This episode […]

After a couple instances of deviating from course, with this episode we get back into the cadence where we begin the show with new-ish music then go a’delving in all the good stuff in the library. This time around, even the less-new music turns up a pair of artists who’ve never been played here before! […]

A show that came together in two straight-through sessions of flow creation. Went pretty deep into the library for this one—had to convert some tracks that I hadn’t played before but have held onto for a while. PLUS, this episode contains the show’s 2000th track! You’ll find out which at the end! And to my […]

When I started this episode, it was going to be one where we stop in the middle, between the new and old sections, like we have been. But from the Chords of Orion track on, the show fell into a deep flow that I didn’t feel like interrupting. So away we go. Sorry about the […]

We continue with our blend of new and old, with the old coming first this time out. I pulled out a couple of names I hadn’t heard in a while, got back to a compilation I think you should know about, and then swished around in the barrel of new releases to pull out some […]

First, I decided it was time to do another tribal-themed episode–because, I may have mentioned in passing, this is my hands-down favorite subgenre. Then, after tracking out the first half hour with Byron Metcalf, Mark Seelig, Steve Roach and Jorge Reyes on tracks one and two, I got into a long-form vibe. So you get […]

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 […]
