"You must have a room, or a certain hour or so a day, where you don’t know what was in the newspapers that morning, you don’t know who your friends are, you don’t know what you owe anybody, you don’t know what anybody owes to you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. This is the place of creative incubation. At first you may find that nothing happens there. But if you have a sacred place and use it, something eventually will happen.”    ― Joseph Campbell


Warmest Greetings!

Here's what I came up with today in my hour. 14 tracks in current rotation for me.  No fillers--all A+ music worthy of your listening attention.  I hope you enjoy them!

Many thanks for the messages I've received from all over the world inquiring about the status of older and, of course, new episodes.  It's great to know I have your company in this "sharing of sounds" experience.  Perhaps I should heed the advice of Mr. Campbell and visit that sacred place more regularly.

There are always questions about the playlist.  I figured Shazam and Soundcloud took all the guesswork out of "I wonder what's this playing".  Nevertheless, here's the list.  I hope you use it to learn more about these artists, support their efforts--financially, attend their concerts, and tell others about them.


  1. Cory Henry - Afro Brooklyn (featuring Phil Lassiter)
  2. Kellylee Evans - And So We Dance
  3. Jarrod Lawson - Sleepwalkers
  4. Nicola Conte - Goddess of the Sea (featuring Jose James)
