New Feature, The "Beyond Radio Presents" Podcast

My annual music party weekend has commenced with this evening’s music featuring the top 5’s from each of the 35 years and in addition, the playlist for the new Beyond Radio feature.

This feature is our Podcast, “Beyond Radio Presents” and has been in the works since last December.

Along with my friend Jeff Morris, we hope to bridge music nostalgia and music discovery with this Podcast. The Podcast will be released in a Netflix series fashion, with several episodes released at the same time relating to a companion playlist, which we called the Pod-Castlist, that is also featured on Spotify.

The premise is to draw off my history of personal charting to relate new to old, old to new and everywhere in between. Jeff gets presented with the playlist and acts as kind of an audience member, giving his feedback and perspective as it relates to his life, thus bringing in other nuances.

Our hope is that the audience will also provide their feedback on the music and suggestions of how the songs relate to their personal soundtracks. We want the music discovery to be circular and run through the decades.

The initial playlist features music from the last 6 decades and this first series of podcasts, 8 in total, start with the songs that were #1 when each of us was born, then move into when we became cognizant of music.

The bulk of the episodes in the first series focus on the band that thrust me into my love for music and my un-ending need to find new songs. We explore the relationships between their early 70’s catalog and artists of the time, along with more current product.

If we can stay on a regular schedule, then we will be releasing a new series of podcasts every 6-8 weeks. The second series is already recorded and just needs to be edited, definitely the most time-consuming part of the project. The audio side has gotten better as we moved deeper into the episodes though more professional equipment will come down the road.

The Untapped Resources 250, June 4 2018

The Full 250 

It's the time of year when Eurovision entries populate the upper reaches. Nice moves into the top 10 for Blossoms, surging to #1, Rita Ora and Company and A Perfect Circle. Not sure what the song title is supposed to mean.

In the next few weeks my time will be dominated by my annual music party scheduled for June 30 and a new major feature to the website that has been in the formulation stage for 6 months. That should debut, with any luck, by the last week of June. I hope that will expand the scope of the Beyond Radio universe, add a fun layer for our existing audience, as well as tap into a new audience.

I hope my passion for the discovery of new music is evident with all I've done and will do in the future. It seems a perfect time for me to capitalize on my history of music discovery thus far. Along those lines if you haven't already I implore you to check out the major new female voice, Caitlyn Smith, who is poised for a 4th #1 on my personal chart in just over 2 months with the amazing "Don't Give Up On My Love". The artist straddles a line between country, adult alternative and adult pop that must be heard.

Kiss your Tears Away

The BR250, May 21 2018

The combo of Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa makes a nice jump from 9-1 displacing 6 week reigner Janelle Monae. Also surging in a big way is Ariana Grande with “No Tears Left To Cry” up 38-3. With that kind of momentum it could displace “One Kiss” on the next chart.

Grande possesses one of seven new titles in the top 25 including Panic At The Disco!, Charlie Puth, Foster The People, James Bay, Carrie Underwood and Bazzi. Underwood sees the biggest increase, moving 89-24 followed by Panic with a 35-16 jump.

With a 22-12 move Sia reaches the top 15 for the 1st time since last October when her collab with Zayn “Dusk Til Dawn” reached #9. It’s been quite a bit longer for David Guetta who hasn’t been at this level for at least 3 years.

Speaking of Zayn he sees the highest new entry in the top 100 with his current single “Let Me”, up 80 points from 128-48. Not far behind is the controversial “This Is America” by Childish Gambino. Billboard’s current Hot 100 #1 enters the list at #59.

Other notable entries to the top 100 include Friendly Fires “Love Like Waves” (292-72), Celine Dion’s “Ashes (736-73) and Florence + The Machine’s “Hunger” (541-76).

Leading ladies on the latest Untapped Top 250

The top 10 is ruled by the ladies on this week’s Untapped Resources chart. 2 female led bands rise to the top 2 positions and ironically the singers collaborated on the song “Bury It” from Chvrches previous album “Every Open Eye”.

 

Jesse McCartney started his career on the soap opera “All My Children” and then joined the boy band Dream Street in 1999. “Better With You” prevoews his upcoming 6th studio album.

 

The color pink occupies the next 2 spots with Janelle Monae’s “Pynk” moving 50-4 and Pink’s “Whatever You Want”, already released internationally as her next single and set to impact radio here later this month, rises 37-5.

 

The latest UK single from Paloma Faith, a remake of Mama Cass’ “Make Your Own Kind Of Music” from 1969 jumps 74-6. The original song, surprisingly only peaked at 36 on the Billboard chart and never made the official UK chart.

 

The moves of the top 6 displace Kacey Musgraves and Lorde by 2 positions with Kim Wilde falling from 1-10 mostly due to a surge on the BR250 from 114-68.

 

Rounding out the top 10 is the latest single from Franz Ferdinand, up 237-9 and the first from the album “Always Ascending” to reach the UR top 10. In January the title track reached #17 on the BR250 and the next single “Feel The Love Go” peaked at #50 on the BR250 in February.

Ladies leading the roost

The BR250, Apr. 23 2018

Both the BR250 and UR 250 see female artists at the top. Janelle Monae notches a third week atop the BR250, solidifying a strong lead over the competition. The song is on 18 more charts that the next contender, Zedd and Maren Marris’ pop smash “The Middle” at #3. It is important to note that “Make Me Feel” has sadly stagnated at radio, only managing the lower reaches of the top 40 on numerous U.S. airplay charts, top 25 airplay in the UK and only reaching #99 on Billboard’s Hot 100. It’s 80’s Prince influence is unmistakable, and I think good counter programming in a number of formats.

On the UR250 another 80’s sound, new wave pop blasts into the top spot as Kim Wilde’s “Kandy Krush” zooms from 169-1 on this week’s chart

The best moves near the top of the BR250 belong to Taylor Swift (22-8) and Niall Horan (25-14).

Moving up to #5, George Ezra’s “Paradise” has seen similar success in numerous European territories and is currently in the AAA top 15 in the U.S.

The Untapped Resources 250, Apr. 23 2018

Krushing the competition, 80’s new wave pop goddess brings back the early 80’s sound on her latest single. Another retro style, 70’s R&B/Jazz vaults up to #2 and into the AAA radio top 10 bringing Leon Bridges to that same radio space for a second time this year.

Moving from 18-3 is UK singer and producer MNEK’s R&B/Dance-Pop jam “Tongue”. The next 3 titles range from straight forward rock from Foo Fighters, a different direction for country darling Kacey Musgraves (rhythmic country pop) and assumingly spurred by a Alt-Hip Hop remix, Lorde’s “Spercut”.

Rounding out the new titles in the top 10 Paramore’s latest “Rose Colored Boy” moves 51-8 and Australian pop diva Jessica Mauboy’s “We Got Love” is up 56-9. She has placed 15 songs in the Australian top 15 since being’s runner-up on the fourth season of Australian Idol in 2006.

Two songs remain in the top 10 from the last chart with both remaining relatively steady on the BR250 this week, Young Fathers moving 128-130 and Teenage Wrist 117-119.

Just outside the top 15 are a couple of female singers who probably won’t remained untapped for long. Florence Welch is back at #13 with the Machine and a new ballad “Sky Full of Song” released on 7” vinyl to coincide with this year’s Record Store Day. The true follow up to the now ubiquitous “No Roots” one of the longest running songs on the BR250, Alice Merton’s “Lash Out” rises to #14. Interesting that their voices are not that dis-similar.

Country and AAA’s new voice Caitlyn Smith dominates my latest chart with 3 titles in the top 10, “Starfire” currently at #1, former #1 “Contact High” at #3 and the gorgeous “Tacoma” at #6. This artist deserves your attention.

 

Former #1 LCD Soundsystem’s “Tonite” continues to amuse at #2, a former 2 week #1. Love the insistent beat and lyrical content.  

After 28 weeks Smallpools finally reach the top 5 with “Centerfold” clearly a song I have not tired of.  

Rounding out the top 5 is another from Canada’s July Talk who have definitely clicked with me in the past year.  

Another Canadian band that similarly has been doing very well for me is the Arkells. Their brand new song “People’s Champ” should ascend my chart rapidly.
