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

Feb 28, 2019

I swing all over the place this week, which always makes for the better shows in my opinion, from Portuguese rap-rock to classical jazz to Indian prog-rock to classic punk rock. We also acknowledge the passing of Mark Hollis, frontman for legendary synthpop band Talk Talk.

Hey, do me a favor, wouldja? Say hi to me over on Twitter. I'd love to know what you think of the show, where you found out about it, and what kinds of stuff you think I should be spinning. Music discovery is a bitch, so I love when people tell me to check out bands, even if I don't end up liking them.

Anyway, here's the show.

So we're apparently in a state of national emergency, and while I thought my dating life was awful, I didn't think President Cheeto needed to make a national emergency about it, especially post Valentine's Day. Oh well, maybe I'll get some relief funding... Anyway, here's another great mix full of awesome tunes.
