Setlist, 5 March 2011 – Carnival and Coffee

This week’s show had two main themes, the start of Carnival in Rio and songs about coffee (and one about tea). There were some new tracks in there, including the brand-new Aeroplane remix of the Human League’s “Never Let Me Go:” and this new Brazilian singer, Tulipa Ruiz, and her song, “Do Amor:” but thereContinue reading “Setlist, 5 March 2011 – Carnival and Coffee”

Setlist, 5 February 2011

This week’s show was, even by my own standards, really international. I just returned from participating in Berlin’s Transmediale Festival, and one of the concerts I got to check out was with Vienna’s Dorian Concept. The acoustics in Berlin’s Festhalle Kreuzberg, an old dance hall made of wood, really resonated with the heavy bass thatContinue reading “Setlist, 5 February 2011”

Setlist, 27 November 2010

This week’s show was mainly put together on two long flights between Prague and San Francisco – having 10 hours each way to do nothing to put together my setlist is a rare opportunity 🙂 The standout tracks this week were Solly’s ‘Shawty Swing’ via the Sick Girls’ excellent mix CD, “Revolution No. 5,” andContinue reading “Setlist, 27 November 2010”

Setlist, 30 October 2010

I’ve just returned from eight days in Berlin, so this week’s show had a pretty strong Berlin vibe to it. It was great being in Berlin and hanging out with other radio people (my organization sponsored a festival devoted to the future of radio called Test Signals). It was also very cool because a localContinue reading “Setlist, 30 October 2010”

Setlist, 16 October 2010

This week had a really wide scope, starting with friend and classmate Monty Luke’s “Art of War” and going all the way through bossa nova covers of Burt Bacharach. It was a lot of fun to put together, and the coolest track was this one, by El Guincho, “Bombay.” It’s NSFW, but what the heck.Continue reading “Setlist, 16 October 2010”

Radio 1 Setlist, 2 October 2010

This week’s show was marked by a cold I managed to pick up either while traveling in Georgia or somewhere in town. But there was a lot of good music I managed to put together, including new songs by Everything Everything, Mads Larsen, Fyfe Dangerfield and Luanda, Angola’s Jazzmatica. And because the fall is wellContinue reading “Radio 1 Setlist, 2 October 2010”
