Winter Winds

Oh hello again,

Once again I’ve been away a long, long time. I’ve been sick, tired, and had a crazy schedule lately but so far the show has been quite exceptional this year. It has evolved a lot over time but the one thing that always stays the same is the music. I always want to play as much music as I can.

Lately I’ve been talking a lot about festivals. With the Primavera Sound Festival in Spain, the Reading & Leeds Festival in England lineups announced things are heating up for a huge summer ahead. Not to mention that a Bonnaroo (a little closer to home) will be announcing their lineup on the 19th of this month! Exciting things, friends.

As for music I’ve been playing a lot of Bombay Bicycle Club and other random picks. I’ll pick up with the song and show lists this Wednesday after the show so stay tuned for then!

Radio Love,

DJ Airplane
