Themeless #20

Sub-theme: Ocean

(aired 2/1/13)

This show is mainly themeless, simply offering a combo of songs I’ve been appreciating lately. The twist is that every set includes at least one song that has the ocean (in some form) in the title and/or lyrics. I was inspired by a recent trip to Hawaii. There I had the pleasure of snorkling, swimming, boogie boarding, sailing, whale-watching and enjoying the sea in all its salty glory.

During this show I shared a song by a talented local artist I recently discovered: Jesse Young, also known as MixMast’r Kno1 or Cobra Commander. His full debut album, begiEND is posted online. You can hear it for yourself at https://soundcloud.com/mixmastr/sets/begiend; feel free to share it with your friends and purchase the download.

Thank you to my friend Gina for a recent surprise gift of a CD of song picks she made for me! She has such good taste in music that I chose to share a number of the tracks from her mix on this show.
