I knew that tonight’s program would have excellent music, but I will confess I didn’t fully realize how excellent until hearing it all end to end. Tonight we focused on the music of Ombient, the great Mike Hunter and his endless fascination with ambient space music.
What a great collection of pieces, including a jaw dropping live set put on by Ombient and Chuck van Zyl at The Gatherings back in May of this year, a recording that benefits The Gatherings Concert Series.
We had a good time discussing the instruments we were hearing, the virtues of various analog sequencers, the joy of pickled garlic, and some of the books we have enjoyed recently. As always, if you are listening but not chatting you are literally missing out on half the fun.
Anyway, here’s tonight’s playlist. Be sure to stop by and grab some of this music yourself, and be sure to purchase an album or two to show your love and support for what you heard.
Hope to see you next week …
