12/12/2015: Year.End (Part Two)

This week, I (Michael) present my favorite music from 2015: songs from my favorite albums (see below), singles, and EPs including tunes from Maribou State, Bruce Trail, Thundercat, Wild Ones and Voices from the Lake. There was a ton of great music released this year and I am especially proud of the mixes we added to our show’s archives this year.

This show marks the end of my eighth year working with Joseph & Kenny on WCRS and my fifteenth year producing the Beat Oracle. Thank you to my co-hosts for always pushing us forward and to WCRS for being a beacon of participatory community radio in Ohio. As always, thank you to our listeners for your support.

On a personal note, few things in life top the joy of dancing to The Beat Oracle in the living room on Saturdays with little ones. Here’s to future music and future memories in 2016.

12/05/2015: Year.End (Part One)

Joseph here, presenting the first episode in our three-part 2015 retrospective. This year, we have recorded  individual sets that showcase our personal favorite albums and tracks of 2015. Included within are favorites from Beach House, Dungen, Jessica Pratt, William Basinski, Bjork, Max Richter, Dave DK, Tame Impala, and many many more! I had two hours to work with and still couldn’t squeeze in a number of great releases (sorry Colleen and Helios).

Thanks to WCRS for their continued support as well as our listeners in Columbus, Bali, and beyond. Special thanks to our long time listeners who keep tuning in after all of these years.

Stay tuned – there is more to come…
