I think the Autechre thread turned me on to this internet radio station? A+ curating and mixes, post your recommendations here.

Currently we are jamming contemporary Arabic music:

For me it's gotta be Charlie Bones & The Do!!You!!! Breakfast Show or bust.

Soul/funk/boogie/reggae/house/highlife/jungle/cosmic electronics/yacht-y rock/other oddities

Great sense of humour, fun rapport w/ recurring guest DJs and killer overall taste

Am really selling it but for me it's the perfect/ultimate radio show where you end up adding hundreds of titles to yr Discogs wantlist while trying to wipe a goofy smile off yr face

Yes! I've bigged up Do You a couple of times on ILM to a fairly muted response. i.e. radio's a dead duck, why listen to real people playing great music when you can listen to another soporiphic house mix on soundcloud? lol

Thank you Charlie Bones for brightening up my weekday mornings at work.

When I've caught the show I love what the Bahamian Moor guys play for southlondonpostpunkyachtbalearicindustrialdisco. Also Field Work's themed ambientnewageprotoidpop explorations just before them.

Also search out Trevor Jackson's mammoth interview with Trevor Horn.

so many great shows i can't even remember what's good but i always make an effort to listen to moxie and unknown to the unknown (both house & techno). charlie bones is sometimes great and sometimes kinda meh depending on his guests. the one with young marco from a couple of weeks back was a classic though

Field Work! Lovely ambient, dub and new age show punctuated by bizarre found sounds and samples

the steve davis + kavus shows are always A++ great if you like weirdo prog sounds

Great thread idea. Some shows I regularly check for, mostly electronic:

Akito (contemporary club music)
The Astral Plane (experimental electronic & dance music)
Nite Bus Radio w/Gage (grime, UK dance, etc)
LOFT (experimental electronic)
Livity Sound (UK techno/dance)

But honestly, between the two channels I can always find something interesting when I'm cooking or at work.

Especially with all the shows archived on Mixcloud, I sometimes think about how if I made NTS my only source of music listening, it would still be a bottomless wellspring.

i mentioned this on the autechre thread, but my introduction to NTS was haruomi hosono day: https://www.nts.live/shows/haruomi-hosono-ymo-day

A 15-hour tribute to the influential Japanese songwriter, Haruomi Hosono, known from his prolific productions and work in the electronic trio, Yellow Magic Orchestra. Expect mixes exploring his career and adjacent music from NTS' most dedicated Hosono-philes.

it's a great soundtrack to a weekend. visible cloaks did a great deep dive all-hosono set, and i really liked jen monroe's set that leans on hosono but also branches out into other music from the era. and for those that aren't familiar with YMO, 2ManyDJs' set was more focused on them.

NTS is a good twitter account to follow, too.

Great thread idea, there's so much good stuff - embarrassment of riches is right!

Usually I find something from the recent NTS Picks or when tuning in to what's live. In addition to what's been mentioned above, I do always look forward to (and warmly recommend) the Blackest Ever Black/Low Company and Silent Servant shows (for post-punk, wave, dark techno and electro, etc.), Whities and Livity Sound (for new leftfield techno), Quiet Storm (for RnB and Jazz), and Sees to Exist and Jazzman for Jazz.

Also having the archives is amazing, as I'll randomly discover a new show I'm feeling and have a treasure trove of back eps to listen to.

xp on the Discogs wantlist...it's not just Charlie Bones who does that!

Yes! I listen to the NTS archives on Mixcloud at work, just dipping in and queuing up things with interesting names (so no doubt missing lots of good stuff) and always manage to queue up more shows in a week than I actually get round to listening to.

Given the hit rate and the randomness of my clicking I feel a bit bad trying to pick favourites, but still - lately I remember enjoying shows by Trevor Jackson, Carla dal Forno, Samuel Kerridge, Not Waving, Silent Servant, mostly on some kind of spectrum between post-punk and post-industrial techno sludge. Particularly enjoyed Not Waving throwing some Italo tracks in along the way too.

I'm extra-appreciative of NTS/Mixcloud today since Soundcloud is having struggles (was down for a few hours, now going in and out).

idk maybe it gets that way sometimes but i didnt have that problem w this episode: https://www.nts.live/shows/naafi/episodes/cdmx-tapes-30th-april-2018

it just mainly felt like uptempo banging dance music that wasnt afraid of some subtle groove shifts for rhythmic variety

Well, then I have a lot of music for you. NTS-wise, you should at least check out Akito's show that I linked up upthread.

Also worth mentioning Jack Rollo's weekly slot on Do You every Monday morning. Lots of weird and wonderful sounds.

how the hell do you manage & keep track of shows? there's so many and i can't figure out how reasonably keep track of where i left off, which ones to save or bookmark or whatever. i thought maybe the mixcloud app would have some mechanism for this but it was so rudimentary and shitty that i deleted it after 5 minutes of use. i want to be able to seamlessly pick up where i left off and save shows the way i do w/, say, podcasts on on the native iOS podcast app

yea it's probably 90% of what i listen to now. three to four clicks at most between the live sets and the archives and i'll hear something new and interesting.

radio, when you have a good host w/ some conception of a program and you are open to what they are doing, is truly wonderful, one of the best ways of hearing recorded music. i love passing over control to this person and going where they want to go, it can be an intimate experience especially w/ live radio, you feel very aware of this other person somewhere else hearing it with you. radio also helps me surrender that possessive, consumptive drive of a collector, of needing to *to own* music, regardless of format, so that i can queue it up again at will and incorporate into some kind of a collection. i don't want a collection anymore. it's not that fun to pick out an album to listen to from a shelf or my files. i usually want someone else to do it.

yea! i like all these shows despite not really being familiar w/ a lot of the music, that's part of the appeal for me, other ilxors might look at the setlists and think that shit is pedestrian and that's fine, i am a pedestrian.

erased tapes japan specials can be really good - https://www.nts.live/shows/erased-tapes/episodes/erased-tapes-19th-february-2018

kaitlyn aurelia smith's touchtheplants is generally great though i'm not as into the folk and pop stuff she sometimes plays
kranky's monthly set is good for catching up on their stuff, occasionally boring but mostly good - https://www.nts.live/shows/kranky

marcos, Friday, 9 November 2018 18:07 (one month ago) Permalink

YES: thank you for those links. i've heard a few of those shows. i haven't listened to the four elements show, but i've been obsessively listening to the three releases in the Wave Notation series recently (Music for Nine Postcards by Hiroshi Yoshimura is the most well-known, but Still Way by Satoshi Ashikawa is even better, somehow)

Karl Malone, Friday, 9 November 2018 18:17 (one month ago) Permalink

and somehow knowing this adds something to the listening experience:

Ashikawa died a few months after this, his only record, came out at just 30 years old (in some kind of traffic accident). His death didn't just spell the end of the Wave Notation project, it also marked the end of his Sound Process label which had previously put out Hiroshi Yoshimura's 'Music For Nine Post Cards' and Satsuki Shibano's 'Erik Satie'.
