Radio Fragments - Modes of Transport

Link: http://radiofragments.tumblr.com

This week’s theme comes from Tim, who suggested ‘modes of transport’. Not just planes, trains and automobiles (though I definitely have those covered), but I throw in boats, rockets, elevators, and a bike.

Thanks Tim!

This week also marks my first attempt using a new technology stack, so instead of seeing the show listed here, I'm going to point you over to http://radiofragments.tumblr.com where I'm hosting the site, and using MixCloud to host a streaming version of the show. (MP3s are still available for those who want them).

Let me know what you think!

Radio Fragments - 1970s: Electronic Music Comes of Age

I have a soft spot for non-pop (well, and some pop, but that's not the point) electronic music from the 70s & 80s, and I've had some luck lately scoring some fantastic and rare examples (thanks Frank). So, I figured "hey, why don't I do a show dedicated to that, and to further restrict myself, just take the decade of the 70s, everyone will like that!"

It is possible I'm insane.
