Two New Radio Mixes Now Streaming
Listen to holiday music on BBC Radio 6 and "Excavated Shellac" on NTS.
April and I have loved listening to the radio together ever since we met, and we continue to spend a lot of time tuning in via AM, FM, and online. She wrote about some of our favorite stations in a previous Substack post, and it was nice to read the comment section to learn what stations you all enjoy. Recently, we were invited to create mixes for two stations we greatly admire: BBC Radio 6 and NTS.
The Tom Ravenscroft Show on BBC Radio 6 got in touch earlier this month and asked if we would be interested in revisiting our release, Where Will You Be Christmas Day?, They wanted half of the mix to include tracks from that compilation of vintage Christmas recordings and the rest of our selections to be more of our contemporary holiday favorites. We put together a 30-minute set, which can be streamed here.
For NTS, we were asked to compile some beloved tracks from our label’s back catalog. We decided to focus on our most recent release, Excavated Shellac: An Alternate History of the World’s Music. The result is a one-hour mix of 20 exceptional recordings from the collection of Jonathan Ward, which you can listen to here.
We hope you enjoy these mixes and that you continue to share where you are hearing great radio these days with us. Last night, riding back from a dinner party with our friend Mason, we caught some of Destroy All Music and Friction on WREK. Fans of experimental music should check out both of those long-running programs.
