Well it’s the end of the year and I figure that’s a great time to try something different. I’ve had blog readers ask me to do podcasts several times, but it took a dear friend’s birthday and some holiday free time before I could finally get around to it. With any luck it will be a semi-regular feature of the blog; let’s even say I am making a resolution about it.
As I explain during the podcast, I won’t be posting a track list here right away. Podcasts are still not really a substitute for live radio broadcasts done from actual radio stations, but at least I can maintain some element of surprise by refusing to provide a ‘spoiler’ list of songs before you hear them. I dutifully read back the tracks during the set breaks, so there is no reason to get upset.
Maybe in a week or so, after people have had time to give this a listen, I’ll post the tracks with some more detailed info on them. For now just enjoy the podcast. You can either stream it from here or download it using the links provided.
HAPPY NEW YEAR
