Radio Show #6: Summertime

We have made it over the hump and the livin' is easy! We hit and exceeded the 150 bands/artist mark during this episode and it was a very exciting accomplishment! (for a nerd like me)   This edition had some awesome moments that I was happy to be a part of. The first of which was … Continue reading Radio Show #6: Summertime

Radio Show #5: Lost

Well, we've made it half way! We are one step closer to our noble goal of bringing a new artist to your ears with every song we play! Out of curiosity, I crunched some numbers and found that we have played one hundred and thirty-three different artists on the CTEP to date! Sharing different music … Continue reading Radio Show #5: Lost

Radio Show #4: Mean Town Blues

Four weeks in and still going strong! In our fourth edition we added some spectacular names to our rotation; while remaining true to our goal of airing ten consecutive episodes without playing the same band twice! To be honest, when I started putting this together I wasn't sure where to go. The flow was slow … Continue reading Radio Show #4: Mean Town Blues

First impressions aren't everything. I know, that may not seem quite right, but I can promise you it's true. When I first saw this tape I had no idea what it was. Jeffertitti's Nile? What the hell is that? Based on the album art I expected to hear something far out, similar to Funkadelic. I could at … Continue reading The Electric Hour: Time Well Spent

Magical Mystery Tour

The Beatles are the most prolific and inescapable band of the 20th century. Their influence is unsurpassed by nearly anyone in the music world. (I'll maybe give you The Stones) The Beatles' catalog has been heard, analyzed, interpreted, and meditated upon for over fifty years. Many of my peers would consider The Beatles to be … Continue reading Magical Mystery Tour

The Glove: Doesn’t fit in

This tape is quite possibly the most '80s thing I have ever heard. Before I get into the sonic qualities at play here, that must be made clear. The Glove takes every cheesy element of '80s pop/anti-pop and milks it for all it's worth. There is a healthy dose of synths and echo filled instrumentation … Continue reading The Glove: Doesn’t fit in
