“sea of ideas” by gbmediadesign

After another long pause between live radio shows, it was nice to be back at the station sharing music and conversation, live! This week’s show was in large part informed and inspired by the music of Radiohead. Since my last radio show, I was able to catch the penultimate show of their 2018 recent summer tour in Philadelphia and it was memorable on so many levels. The extended set of Radiohead tracks featured this week represent a sort of “musical postcard” from the event. Also included this week were compositions by other artists inspired by Radiohead’s music. Checkout this week’s playlist to see the full palette of tracks shared.

After a multi-week absence from the airwaves, I was back this week to share new music as well as a number of tracks that explore space and place in unique ways.
