The Line-Up for 6 August 2010

Last week's Line-Up didn't quite gel right and that sort of bugs me. For a moment, I considered playing the exact same songs but in a more coherent order, but instead I chose to just move forward as I do with everything else I do and make this show at least 200% better than before. Hopefully, you'll agree that [this show] fulfilled that promise...

Fringe: Widely Accepted or Unanimously Rejected

Since I volunteer my time at a radio station, I often get a lot of interesting music. Since [KRTU] is geared toward playing a wide range of everything the jazz canon has to offer 17 hours a day while still sounding accessible to a layperson, it tends to reject many of the albums it gets in for various reasons. The other seven hours of the day are geared toward indie rock and other genres that one would come to expect for a college radio station. Thus, it tends to get a little interesting when an album comes in that straddles the line of jazz and rock but isn’t quite radio friendly enough for either format. This is where I come in. I have always been a lover of that fringe music.

I'm not going to go into a lot of particulars about what Friday entailed but let me just say you know I love everyone who hears this show when I still put together such great music for you all to hear after a long day like this. It's been long, tiring, but good. With such a runaround day like this, it's perfect to listen to this great music...

To be quite honest, I don’t really have a topic this week. Part of that is because things are a little topsy turvy here at Nextbop but we’re sure to come out of it really soon to continue to bring you quality content to show the best that jazz can offer. The other reason why is because I frankly think our good friend, Patrick Jarenwattananon has said everything I’ve wanted to say quite perfectly this week.

The Line-Up for 23 July 2010

As I state at the end of all my columns, I host a show on [KRTU San Antonio] called The Line-Up on Friday nights at 10/9 Central that deals primarily with all the kinds of music in which Nextbop specializes. It's this show that caught Seb's eye and was part of what got me this gig here at Nextbop. The other day, I was talking with Seb and wondered why I wasn't posting the playlists for each episode of the show on this site, especially since I would be simultaneously posting the same thing on [my personal blog]. Seb said all is cool so here is the playlist for this last Friday's Line-Up. Check out the show at [KRTU's audio archives] and live on KRTU on Friday nights.
