Touring the world one pair of headphones at a time...

Jul 29, 2017

So this is a megalithic episode, and it goes on forever, but it should give you tons of amazing music to listen to, and cover nearly every band of the spectrum. Electro, rock, metal, jazz, hiphop in three languages, post-rock, prog piano, a comparison between two bands both named Slaves, a tribute the drummer John Lever, so jam music, some classic rock... look, there's something for everyone. Considering how long this episode runs, there would have to be, right?

So strap in and enjoy a 4XL episode of the show.

So we're returning to the one-a-week, two-hour-show format starting immediately. I talk a little bit about why in the episode, but basically, it's just easier for me to manage, and I didn't see much of an uptick one way or another in doing two shows a week. Consider yourself notified.

Lots of international flavor this week, but also lots of classics, and a small rant from me on why I think "nü-metal" got unfairly slagged as we mourn the passing of Linkin Park's Chester Bennington.

Back to our usual mishmash radio show, full of all sorts of things to tickle and delight your eardrums. Music from Japan, Germany, England, Scotland, Australia and more.
