Do you ever get that feeling like nothing’s quite real? There’s a word for that – depersonalization. Man, am I ever not with it right now. All I want to do is listen to music and stay lost out in space. Alas, I should probably work today. But tonight…
Tonight, I present to you a challenge, sort of. What Planet Is This?! airs at 8:00 PM CST. Kind of late, but not really late, right? So here’s what I want you to try: At 7:58 PM tonight, put on your favorite pair of headphones (hopefully you’ve got a nice big pair that fit over your ears, rather than those buds that sit in your ear, but if not, that’s okay too), tune in to 91.3 FM in Regina or the webcast online at cjtr.ca, or on Sasktel Max, or Access – however you listen, sit down in your favorite chair or wherever you’re most comfortable, close your eyes and let the music take you away. Just focus on nothing else but the music. I will try to be as uninterruptive as possible, so you can enjoy your journey without some yammering disc jockey in your ears.
I won’t tell you what artists to expect on tonight’s show, but I will let you know that you can expect some regulars, some that have never been played on the show before, some energetic, some relaxed – all good.
Folks, it’s okay to ignore reality for an hour. Really. Just enjoy it! The world will still be there when you get back. 🙂
Here are the tunes…
1. The Flaming Lips – My Cosmic Autumn Rebellion
2. Groove Armada – At The River
3. Thom Yorke – Atoms For Peace (Four Tet Remix)
4. Portishead – Sour Times
5. Great Uncles Of The Revolution – When We Were Little
6. Astor Piazzolla – Vuelvo al Sur (Koop Remix)
7. Jon and Roy – By The Sea
8. Beirut – El Zócalo
9. Jason Collett – Northern Light Letdown
10. Mark Knopfler & His Band with Emmylou Harris – Lost On The River
11. Wynton Marsalis & Ellis Marsalis – Linus and Lucy
12. The Deep Dark Woods – Dead and Buried
Thanks, as always, for listening, and I apologize again for cutting off that Mark and Emmylou tune. Then I had to cut off Linus and Lucy to get in most of the DDW… ugh! Oh well, I may just have to give that tune another go next week to make up for it. I hope you enjoyed the show. I think it went pretty well before the mix-up, and despite being sick, I still enjoyed myself.
Until next time…
