Radio BSOTS show #166 - Tranquil Beats: Tuesdays In August, 2016



Feedback is a blessing.  Please feel free to get in touch via email, Twitter, or leave a voice message on the Speakpipe page.

In August of last year, I served as the guest curator for the Tranquil Beats playlist series on Bondfire Radio.  This episode of Radio BSOTS features the cuts I chose to play on a Tuesday throughout that month.

There are far too many reasons to keep chill out tunes within your reach these days.  Hopefully, this mix is able to meet you where you're at and take you somewhere else, if need be.  Either that or keep your soul and spirit stabilized in that good place.  For anyone who missed the first mix of tunes played on Mondays in August, you can find that episode here.

Radio BSOTS show #165 - BUCKWILD: Recovery Mode


Feedback is never a bad thing, so feel free to get in touch via email, Twitter, or leave a voice message on the Speakpipe page.

This show was recorded in stages between the months of March and April 2017.  I think the last time BSOTS got "buckwild" was in December of 2015, so this podcast has been long overdue for another primal scream.  A lot has happened since then, both in my life and the world at large.  There's plenty of music contained within this episode that speaks at length on the problems of the world today.  At the same time, there's music for the body to provide some balance.  As I always say with every "buckwild" episode, music for the party people, music for those that stay politickin', and music for the rest of us who find ourselves somewhere in between.  Hope you enjoy it.

Radio BSOTS show #164 - Cupid's Hunt 2017: grass ain't greener...



Feedback?  Certainly wouldn't mind more of that, so feel free to get in touch via email, Twitter, or leave a voice message on the Speakpipe page.

This podcast episode is a two-fold celebration.  First off, this show marks the beginning of the 2017 podcast year for Radio BSOTS.  Not only that, but this show is also being released as part of the 10th Anniversary Cupid's Hunt Podcast Collaboration.  Since 2008, music lovers, DJs, and podcasters have been gathering together and releasing music mixes in honor of Valentine's Day.  The celebration at Cupid's Hunt is a month-long thing, seeing as how this project has hit the 10 year mark.

My Cupid's Hunt offering for this year began by asking a simple question:  what would it sound like to try to tell the plot of the movie Blue Valentine through music?  In no way am I suggesting that I have accomplished this, but the idea of pulling that off was a driving force behind this episode.  Pink Floyd's "Don't Leave Me Now" from The Wall soundtrack also served as a major influence for this mix.  Both of those pieces of information go a long way to suggest that this is not the typical Valentine's Day mix, but I've been moving further away from the traditional collection of love songs since 2013.  I didn't know it then, but I had started to create a trilogy.  It only dawned on me that I was making a trilogy once I started to map out the song sequence of this mix.  The offerings from past Cupid's Hunt mixes in 2013 and 2015 seem to share a common thread with this one.

Four years ago, I became far more interested in the gray areas of love, all the emotions that can often be confused for it or offered up as a substitute when there's no love to give.  This mix is no different.  I wanted to explore what goes on behind the social media veneer of smiling faces and vacation shots.  There's hurt behind the lives that we create online for the public to see and as far as I'm concerned, the real emotions underneath make for a far more interesting story to tell within the mix.

I certainly hope that you enjoy this mix and will find the time to listen to the previous parts of the trilogy, if you haven't already.
