I made a mix for a friend recently, as it’s been quite a while since I sent her one. This being a very hot summer, I tried to give it a somewhat summery feel. I chose some ambient, 1980s synth-pop, a Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan remix, some breezy jazz fusion by Carlos Santana and Alice Coltrane and a load more great tunes. This version has a different tracklist and is longer than the CD I made for my friend.

Festive Tidings -December 2010

Hello again – time for another old show I dug out of the folder. This one’s from December 2010 – seeing as it’s nearly December again, I thought I’d go with it.

I got a bit festive in the start of the episode with Misty’s Big Adventure and The Steve Miller Band. After that, it’s pretty much the usual grab-bag from my collection – a bit of jazz, ambient, electronic and rock with a trip to the Vinyl Vault thrown in, too. In this show, I dusted off my copy of Led Zeppelin‘s “Physical Graffiti”, as a request.

It’s all there, folks – get amongst it! You can listen to and download it here: Kaleidophonic Stroboscope – December 2010
