Show #62 (I think) Playlist, etc.

Holy smokes! I can’t wait to sit down in the control room tonight and play enough good music to make this past week disappear! What a gong show! Just way too busy.

I’m bringing out the big guns tonight – a bunch of my new and old favourites to put me at ease and hopefully do the same for you.

Show #61 (I think) Playlist, etc.

Man, time is just ripping on by. I’ve been so busy in the last little while that I’ve been late posting playlists (sorry about that). I do have every intention on getting it all up-to-date, but I’ve been doing it in installments – a few tracks here, there. It’s a lot more time consuming than you might think to find all of the info I need for a good quality playlist.

That said; I will have it up-to-date sooner than later. I will.

Actually, I’m not the only one who has a lot on their plates right now. Al from Mouth Radio cannot make it in tonight, which means – another two-hour What Planet Is This?! tonight, starting at 7:00 PM!

I hope you can join me for another epic journey through space and time as we hear some neat poppy-electro stuff, some experimental jazz, some traditional jazz, some folk and roots, blues… That’s right folks. We will be stargazing across the universe of sound tonight. Don’t worry, though. Nothing too weird. I promise.

Show #59 (I think) Playlist, etc.

Due to those unforeseen circumstances that often force their way into our daily lives, I’m covering TWO HOURS of great music once again. Al from Mouth Radio can’t make it in, and I happen to not have a life on Tuesday nights, outside of What Planet, so there you have it!

This came at short notice, so I can’t even tell you what kind of wonderful things I’ll pull out of the bag for tonight. Hmm… This might be a good excuse to play a couple of those extra-long numbers that I’ve been putting off for a while because they just take up too much time in an hour-long show. Not everything will be an epic sound-poem or anything like that. I promise: it will all be good. I’ve been on a big jazz kick again lately, so don’t be surprised to hear some from the great jazz archive! I think I very well may toss in a couple of fun electro tunes, too, for good measure. We’ll see what I can fit into the time I’ve got.

Tune in from 7:00 to 9:00 tonight, plug in those headphones, brew some tea, sip some wine, maybe a fine scotch and enjoy!
