BWDD – December 27, 2020

Finally. Tonight is the very last Blue Water Drift Dive from this “interesting” year of 2020 and I could not be happier. To celebrate, we will take a look back at my favorite releases from this year.

In the first hour, we will hear lovely selections from Forrest Fang, Quantum Eraser Trio, C. Paradisi, Grum-pe, and Robert Rich, covering a very broad swath of ambient territory. And in the second hour we will hear from Eyes Cast Down and Bill Baxter. There will also be a brief live set by me to open things up.

The show happens tonight at 10p/9p/8p/7p ET/CT/MT/PT (2a UTC), immediately following the end of Tony Gerber’s fantastic Ambient Sundays program, and will last at least 2 hours. As with all RadioSpiral.net programs, the emphasis is on community, so of course there is a live chat.

If you tune in, I hope you’ll stop by and say hello!

BWDD – December 13, 2020

Tonight on Blue Water Drift Dive, we will enjoy two outstanding but very different ambient albums.

In the first hour, we will hear epic ambient space music from Thom Brennan’s brand new album Homeland. In the second hour, we will hark back to one of my all time favorites of minimal acoustic ambient music, The Last Season by Petal.

There will also be a live set by me, on an untested rig. Wish me luck!

11p/10p/9p/8p BWDD live ambient pirate raid!

There is no Star’s End tonight, alas, so I thought it might be fun instead to play some lovely ambient space music on a pirate raid this evening. So …

Tonight on RadioSpiral at 11p US Eastern Time / 8p US Pacific Time, I’ll be doing a live pirate raid, presenting music from such folks as Chuck van Zyl, Ombient, and Alpha Wave Movement, plus anything else I feel like adding on the fly. Arrrr.

Hope to see you then! Also, please drop by the chat and say hello …

BWDD – December 6, 2020

Tonight on Blue Water Drift Dive, we continue our journey through the ambient music of winter.

In the first hour, we will hear beautiful but icy cuts from such artists as Christopher Short, Forrest Fang, Darkened Soul, and Juta Takahashi. And hopefully a brief live set as well.

In the second hour, we will hear that classic of winter classics, none other than Altus and his breathtaking 15th anniversary reimagining of Winter Embrace. No winter music program could possibly be complete without it!

BWDD – November 29, 2020

For the next few episodes of Blue Water Drift Dive, as we ponder our imminent departure into the sunless depths of the darkest season, we will focus on music of winter.

And what exactly is that? Well, it’s more about a feeling than an overt genre or topic. It’s about ambient music that has a touch of frostiness to it, pieces with flow, scope, and duration suitable to the music, and above all, a sense of quiet solitude amongst the hush as snow falls.

With that in mind, tonight we will hear music from two wonderful artists: Somnarium and Max Corbacho!
