Some episodes are better than others. This category highlights those that I am most extremely and profoundly pleased with and proud of.

THE WORD SENT INSTEAD.

Episode 105. mp3. cue. Released October 29, 2008 Starts sparse and wisftul with acoustic and electronic turns, then it hip hops, then it gets down and dirty out in the countryside and town. I would say this episode can generally be described as gritty but still captures a wide array of different sounds. I would […]

COURTING RUST PUPPETS

Episode 103. mp3. cue. Released August 07, 2008 Maybe we’re getting into a bit of a groove with the long delays. I apologize. But hopefully you shan’t be disappointed with the wait. Hopefully the wait will even be seen to have been well worth it? This one starts off in the sun in the country […]

INCONSEQUENTIAL CONSENSUAL SENTINAL.

Episode 100. mp3. cue. Released April 29, 2008 This is a centennial celebration of sorts. If to you an episode is a year… at any rate… one hundred 2-3 hour episodes ago, the little radio slipstream breathed its first breath. Of course if you consider that was 40 months ago, that’s not extremely impressive. But […]

CRICKETS IN MY LATE NIGHT TENNIS.

Episode 98. mp3. cue. Released March 17, 2008 Apologies for the delay… working 8.5 hour days really reduces the amount of time I have to comb through old music and listen to new tunes and carefully (+ocd-ishly) arrange them into podcast playlists. Don’t you wish I was still a bum? At any rate, until I […]

ALWAYS LESS LIKE LASTING.

Episode 96. Released February 2, 2008 Back into the swing of things! As per Mr Normal, a delectable selection of that what’s been making my ears dream. Chilled electronica to danceybits to quirky poky pop and mellowed out epics, with a bit of dirt (delicious dirt!) tossed on the tail end.       (0:00) Aphex Twin / […]

NEBULANEMONE.

Episode 94. Released December 22, 2007 [NOTE: As of Jan 3, 2008, the mp3 has been fixed so it is no longer full of blips and artifacts] This one’s got a flow, yo! Bit of a counterpoint to the pop and rocking of the last episode… Starting electronic with some ambient and spacey stuff, then […]

END. (Radio Edit).

The final episode of Radio Slipstream aired on CFMU. Nothing new here (except one old favourite that somehow never got featured on the show), just a selection of my most favourite songs. Like a flashback episode I suppose. I worked pretty hard on this, both the show in general, and on squeezing down 3 and a half hours of music into 2 for my final radio program. I hope you like it.
