Deep Threes Radio #7 Playlist

Part of the beauty of freeform radio is the ability to present music that is slightly askew. Your ears might be expecting “Big Yellow Taxi”, but you delight to discover a small yellow airplane, or better yet, an abstract sculpture of one…

In this digital age, music lovers have been liberated from collecting an entire album or just the single. We can dive into the depths of digital music libraries for those perfect pearls to add our string of playlists. The Deep Threes.

On this show, Electric Skychurch helps us see the light as Pan American charts a course for Nawang Khechong, Cinnamon Sphere and Hexedene to step out of the shadows. Plus, we shine the spotlight on a new live track from Blues Traveler. Enjoy!

Deep Threes Radio #6 Playlist

It’s been five weeks since the tragic explosion on the drilling platform Deepwater Horizon that trigger the massive BP Oil Spill. If comedy equals tragedy plus time, like it or not, just enough time has passed for a satirical Tweeter to gain popularity.

Thee is still some hope that BP can plug the well and save beaches like the one above. But a new internal report indicates the company ignored the warning signs. Are we destined to see the mouth of the Mississippi River resemble the picture below? Corporate responsibility does not happen overnight – or even in 2 1/2 fortnights.

The music that rose to the surface for this week’s Deep Threes is like a soundtrack for a post-modern beach party. Music that colors the background while you fire up the barbecue.  A hot dance set to get down in the sand. Blues and jazz to reach for the blankets by, topped off with introspective pieces to listen to at sunrise.

There’s not a tar ball in the bunch. So break out your coolers and start a bonfire. Frankie and Annette would never know what hit them – or washed ashore.

Deep Threes Radio #5 Playlist

The first wave of U.S. party primaries are over and incumbent candidates, Obamacrat and Republican alike, suffered the backlash of the American public. The media diluted the “Super Tuesday” brand to create buzz, but the hype was not needed to draw the attention of an irate and frustrated citizenry. “Uncle Sam”, the greatest superhero of all, prevailed yesterday.

I credit Peter Senge of MIT’s Sloan School of Management with coining the often appropriated maxim, “The harder you push, the harder the system pushes back.” The pendulum of American politics has certainly swung wildly in the past several years.

This edition of Deep Threes offers up a menagerie of Sun Travellers, Bottle Rockets and Flowerheads suitable for your next Mad Tea Party (such as Disneyland’s in the pic). Get ready to stir up the Beehive and Burn The Cat. We even have a soprano who can go all medieval on a moment’s notice…

Deep Threes Radio #4 Playlist

Fluffy clouds can turn dark and scary in an instant.

A Wall Street trader mistakenly placed an order for $16 billion of stock last week, sending stock prices into a brief but dramatic nosedive. I ordered 16 billion MP3’s for this edition of Deep Threes. Now my debit card has a negative balance. I’m selling off some stock to cover it.

A group called Anti-Social Music joins hands with classically influenced rockers on one side and avant-garde jazz cats on the other.  Karma, voodoo, waivers and selling one’s soul also figure into this week’s sets. I employed all of those tools to secure the bandwidth needed to download my MP3 order.

May all your (storage) clouds be big and puffy.

Deep Threes Radio #3 Playlist

An Almost Empty Times Square

Even when the place seems desolate, Times Square pounds the senses with disparate lights, sounds and smells. In this show, Giorgio Moroder’s drum machines send us toward a virtuoso performance from percussionist Evelyn Glennie.  Duke Ellington puts a classical cherry on top of a chocolate coated pile of current releases.
