What Planet Is This?! archives


Finally at the end of the month!

Let’s share some good music together. Tonight, I’ve got 30 or 40 vinyl records lined up for the show. As always, I’ll never be able to play them all, but I’ll be sure to play some great ones. I’ve got everything from some classic Freddie Hubbard soul jazz to some new-school ’60s-style funk from Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, some brand new Beirut, a track or two from one of the highest selling albums of all time…

Tune in from 4:00 to 6:00, kick back and enjoy!

Show #94 (I think) Playlist, etc.

As usual, I do everything at the last second. It was around 11:30 last night when I realized I have to put together a radio show. 😦

I put a lot of work into this, you know. Sure, I could just grab some random CDs and throw them into the bag (and, admittedly, I do, from time to time, when I totally forget until the last second), but I like to make sure everything has a good vibe to it. Not just each individual tune, but how they go together. It’s like pairing a nice wine with a masterpiece meal. These things need to be distinct, yet complimentary.

That said, tonight’s main course includes some instrumental jazz masters like Stanley Turrentine and Michael Brecker, some soulful singers like Nina Simone and Sarah Vaughan, some great folk tunes from The Deep Dark Woods and Jimmy LaFave, some great newer electronic music from Baskyl and The Weeknd, and, as always, plenty more.

Be sure to tune in tonight from 4:00 – 6:00 and come on back to this page for a full playlist after the show.

It’s cold outside.

There. Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s stop whining and get into some good music.

Sarah Slean has a new album coming out and that got me thinking about how I came to know about her. I’ll play some of what made me fall hopelessly in love with her and perhaps even mention where and when she’ll be playing in Regina in the very near future. I’ve also got a nice big dose of other fantastic music on CD and on my portable media player: some jazz, some pop, some folk…

Tune in tonight from 4:00 to 6:00 and for the love of good music, shut up about the weather. I mean… don’t forget to check back here for a playlist, later.

The Lazy MKs - Where We Bin


Wednesday kind of sneaks up on you, doesn’t it?

I was just about out the door bright and early this morning when I realized, ‘Oh crap! It’s not Tuesday today. I have to put together a radio show!’ After a mad dash to my music room (yes, I really have a music room – not going to lie, it’s pretty sweet), I loaded up a few dozen CDs in a span of about 20 seconds and ran out the door to catch the bus to work.

Whew!

Well, I can’t lie. Much less thought went into the selections for this week than usual, but I always bring more than I can possibly play in the allotted time I’m given at the station, so I’ll still get to mold it to a nice and smoothly laid-out playlist.

Be sure to tune in from 4:00 to 6:00 for some great music and a good time! As always, come back to this page after the show for a full playlist.
