This weeks TRANSMUSIC AIRWAVES (Episode #273) represents some of my best work in blending the diverse musical styles that give the freeform radio format it's name. I'm extremely proud of how each set unfolds, its flow, and the programs unique overall sound.

During the second set there's Indian based melodies that emerge from ANANDA SHANKAR, TRAFFIC, and HIERONYMUS FIREBRAIN which then evolve into early synthesizer inspired pieces from DER PLAN and SILVER APPLES before the tempo shifts to guitar based rhythm's from SNAKEFINGER, FATOUMATA DIAWARA, and THE CLASH.

NEW album cuts are played from THE BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE, MORCHEEBA, DAVE HOLLAND, THE BRAD MEHLDAU TRIO, PAUL SIMON'S 'Graceland Remixes,' and THOMAS BARTLETT & NICO MUHLY'S 'Balinese Ceremonial Music' release. As usual, there's plenty of selections from the musical 'vault' including those from KING CRIMSON, JIMMY SMITH, T. REX, SALVATION, ART ZOYD, JOHN ENTWHISTLE, and HAWKLORDS.

Another week brings yet another new episode of TRANSMUSIC AIRWAVES (Episode #272). What could possibly be different from the last one, you ask? Well, nothing...and everything. Akron artist JOSH STONE has a NEW song ('Bubbles In Space – the Magic Mix') and I've added it to a set with a few other space themed songs from DUKES OF STRATOSPHEAR, BE BOP DELUXE, and DEERHOOF. There's NEW music from RY COODER, JACK WHITE, FATOUMATA DIAWARA, and a couple of cuts from ALEXANDRE DESPLAT'S 'Isle of Dogs' soundtrack.

There's a set based loosely around the recent summit that includes music from OSAMU KITAJIMA, Korean space metal band JAMBINAI, dialogue from the movie 'Dr. Strangelove, and songs from MINISTRY and the JEFFERSON AIRPLANE. JOHN PRINE sings 'Caravan of Fools' from his latest, and the set finishes with jazz sax master OLIVER LAKE and Finnish guitarist JUKKA TOLONEN who both make appearances from the music 'vault.'

There is music from RALPH CARNEY, TALL DWARFS, THE ART OF NOISE, IMOGEN HEAP, MAYO THOMPSON, and HECTOR ZAZOU included on today's show as well. It works for me so hopefully it'll work for you.
