As if time wasn’t already at a serious premium, I have decided to launch a podcast. Since it’s much easier for me to talk about music than it is for me to write about it anymore, this seemed like the logical thing to do.
My friends at Popdose are hosting (well, I load the shows to Mixcloud, and park them at Popdose), and that is the perfect home for this, because this show is basically the three columns I wrote for them – the dance mix segment White Label Wednesday, the pop song-y Pop Goes the World, and the ballad column Mope Like Me – all rolled into one. Each show will have some balance of these three things. Here are the first four shows.

This is when I realized I could have fun doing two-song beat mixes. I don’t know how that escaped me for the first two shows.

Another birthday show, but more grounded in the ’90s.
New shows go live at Popdose every Thursday at noon EST. Follow me on Mixcloud and you’ll be notified when the shows are posted. Think of it as a Fast Pass to new shows.
