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:

this might belong on a different thread, but it is a fun resource for browsing the globe through radio.

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.

thanks, everyone. I went deep down the New Age rabbit hole yesterday, great stuff

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.

Jordan's right, it's an embarrassment of riches

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.

nts has been my work soundtrack since spotify stopped working on my computer six months ago. best thing that's happened to my listening in a long time

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

The Haxan Cloak has done a few shows I've really loved, and Test Pressing is always great.

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

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Tuesday, 1 May 2018 18:27 (five months ago) Permalink

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
