Happy Saturday, my fellow loungers!
Has Spring sprung in your corner of the world? It appears to be coming in kicking and screaming in North America, as many places shoveled snow on the 20th, the first day of Spring.
Toronto has dodged that bullet, but still experiencing colder than normal temperatures.
Patience everyone! We shall soon have our moment to lounge in the sunshine. I have my Bose Bluetooth speaker charged and ready for patio use, as the missus begins thinking about her garden plans. Lots of work, made easier when accompanied by the sounds of This is Lounge.
Congrats this week to Sambox, as he continues to reign supreme atop of the chart. The cool, downtempo chillhop sound of Saib. moves up to number two, and Michael e & Jirka 'slides into third'. (Sorry for the unintentional baseball reference….must be Spring Fever!)
Fans of Stephanie Sante, have no fear. She may have dropped a little in the charts, but her rotation on the station still remains high, as does Vladi Strecker and Weathertunes. Keep listening.
A good man is hard to keep down, as station favorite Phigroa jumps into the mix from Bubbling Under with his nod to myself and the station and the beautiful city here, A Night in Toronto.
Speaking of Bubbling Under, if you’ve been listening closely, you would have noticed a new Sade song – Flower of the Universe. Her first new song in something like 14 years, it comes from the soundtrack to the new Disney film, A Wrinkle in Time. Welcome back, Sade! Let’s hope there’s more to come.
Also new this week, courtesy of DJ Maretimo’s Manifold Records, comes a new track from Jazzy James Jr. called Quartier Latin, the Slow Gasolina Mix. If you’re familiar with Manifold’s roster, then you know the level of musicianship here. A beautiful track.
As always, if you like what you hear, head on over to the station website and cast a vote. It only takes a minute and you get to play a part in the programming as you watch your vote help move your fave up the chart.
Don’t forget to support your faves through purchases from their Bandcamp page, or through iTunes, or Beatport, or any of the other legal download stores. Help keep the music alive.
Thanks for your support of this station. Internet radio is very competitive, along with the other streaming services. I am very appreciative of you choosing us, for a few minutes or a few hours. We’re not a streaming playlist that will eventually end. We’re on the air 24/7, in most parts of the world. Thanks for listening. Thanks for the support.
