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

Radio Show #3: The Devil is Singing Our Song

We are now officially three shows in on our mission to ten shows in a row of not playing a single artist twice! We have featured some fantastic, classic, and bombastic music thus far; we have no intention of slowing down! Our third episode featured some great pockets of songs that just made sense. On … Continue reading Radio Show #3: The Devil is Singing Our Song

Last Thursday was the second installment of the Cassette Tape Exchange Program on WVEW-LP Brattleboro! The set was full of long songs, most of which were about five minutes.

Hello everyone out there! The CTEP is branching out to another medium! Yes, now you will be able to hear the mixes I have been compiling and tracking.

Mix Just In: Fall 2017

We're in the full swing of Fall! As we have entered another season, we welcome another tape to the CTEP!

I have compiled what I believe to be a mixtape that perfectly … Continue reading Mix Just In: Fall 2017

What the Hell is This? Supersexy Swingin’ Sounds

You've found something cool, something so rad that you knew you were going to buy it the moment you saw it. You excitedly threw the tape into your deck and as the sound waves first washed over your ears, you realized that something was wrong! "What the hell is this?" For me, it was the … Continue reading What the Hell is This? Supersexy Swingin’ Sounds

3 Tapes Grace: Pretty Simple Mix

I had a very specific idea for this tape; construct a mix of sounds I found to be pleasant without overthinking.  I was looking for themes of simplicity, ease, introspection, relaxation, and beauty. I'm well aware that none of these songs embody each quality and I failed at not overthinking. However, I believe this is … Continue reading 3 Tapes Grace: Pretty Simple Mix

The Oldest Cassette I Own

Here we are, celebrating a month of sharing good music! I would like to thank everyone that has taken the time to stop by and check out what's going on! Now, let's get down to the nitty gritty! Cassettes, I will admit (as should anyone) are vintage/retro/out-dated technology. They don't make cars with tape decks … Continue reading The Oldest Cassette I Own
