Mindtrain 00 – 26 July 2011

Sunday, October 2

What I play on Mindtrain is what I like – the music I’ve discovered and grown to love over the last forty-odd years of avid listening and collecting. There are no restrictions or discriminations as to style or genre or era, and the program is as much about breaking down musical barriers as it is about creating unexpected links and connections (call it ‘the art of the segue’). Some of it is old and some is new. Some of it is obscure and out-of-print, but much of it is available to those who take the time to hunt it down (that’s what the internet is for). I strenuously encourage listeners who discover new and previously unheard music on this program to Google artist names and visit to learn more, and to support the music by purchasing digital or physical releases when available.

This initial test broadcast of Mindtrain was done from the remote studio of Doktor Sleepless (host of the Interstellar Nihilism program here at Radio Valencia). Song selections were made pretty much ‘on the fly’ as I was learning how to present my first radio show (ever). Clumsy segues between songs, dead air and flubbed track announcements were unintentional and more or less unavoidable. There is some fine music here, nonetheless (and the music is what this show is all about).

The playlist gives artist name, song title, and album title (in that order). A space between lines of text indicates the break between sets where track announcements were made.
