I corralled a lot of very new music together while heading to the radio station to put this show together this week. It felt a little exhilarating moving so fast and being so productive and working down to the wire on this one, and I think it's a damn fine hour.
The Line-Up for 20 November 2015
In six years of my having this show, this is probably only the second time I missed it. I had to scurry off to Austin for Fun Fun Fun Fest (there's a piece forthcoming) and didn't have enough time to put a show together. Fortunately, Kory covered for me and filled in quite nicely with some stuff that should probably be on my radar as much as it should be on yours.
The Line-Up for 6 November 2015
As I find myself in a weird bout of Halloween-based seasonal affective disorder and find a sense of balance after finishing a major writing project while heading into another this weekend, I put together another hour of new.
The Line-Up for 30 October 2015
Other than newness for the sake of newness, I can't really think of a major through line for this week's show. There's some talk of shows coming nearby -- Brad Mehldau Trio at the Aztec next week, BBNG at Fun Fun Fun Fest in two weeks, Christian Scott at the Tobin in a couple months -- but really, the constant celebration of the new is theme enough for me.
