Pirate Raid Tonight!

Arrrrr, mateys.

It’s been quite a few minutes since the last time I broadcast, but I thought this Saturday night would be a good time for another pirate raid on RadioSpiral.net.

I will be playing a nice selection of ambient tunes from Earth Mantra’s The Hundredth Mantra, so I hope you will tune in for that. There will also be a live performance by me.

The show happens TONIGHT, Saturday October 16 at 10p/9p/8p/7p ET/CT/MT/PT (2a UTC), 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.

I hope to see you there!

The ambience of Stephen Phillips

Another work day, another set of ambient pieces to listen to whilst coding.  Today I loaded up every single piece I have by Stephen Phillips, one of the great ambient artists ever, and put them on random play.  It has been much too long since I listened.

Here are some of the gorgeous pieces I am enjoying:

Neptune Is A Gas Giant

Installations 3 – A Sense of Warmth

Jupiter’s Moons

You can hear all of Stephen’s music at Dark Duck Records, which, by the way, is also one of the coolest ambient record labels ever, releasing some of the best ambient music anywhere by a variety of artists.

Check it out …

Playlist – February 2, 2018

We had a wonderful program this evening.  I played three of my favorite ambient long players, deep pieces with the time to thoroughly explore the space created by the artists.  I hope to see you next week!
