Beyond Radio Presents - Castlist 11 - Ep 2 -What I Did Last Summer, The Morning After

This episode is nostalgia-centric though it does stem from a fun summer story. There are lots of movie and television references in the episode as well.

From the title, the Maureen McGovern song The Morning After leads us down a movie path and towards one of my favorite shows of all-time. Plus a group with a cheesy '70s instrumental has ties to the early days of hip hop.

We move to the Carpenters where more TV is discussed and we end with my sister on stage at the Garden State Arts Center.

After that, we return to a major fav artist of mine and re-visit the idea of song bridges where connections between The Knack, The Flaming Lips, The The, and Prince are made.

You can find the corresponding playlist on Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube.

Beyond Radio Presents: What I Did Last Summer-The 40th Annual Music Party

This is the first of 3 episodes focusing on a few music-oriented stories from this past summer. The first episode talks about things from my 40th annual music party (the Castlist 002 episodes from the fall of 2018 talk about the #1's at the parties). It was a great party, the weather cooperated and there were a few key moments that I talked about in the episode. Here I am posting the top 50 songs from the party game and the top 50 artists of the last 40 years.

We mentioned and/or used 43 songs in this episode. And I brought up the Peanuts cartoon and the TV Kids Incorporated.

The top 50 for the party game.

Beyond Radio Presents: 8Trax with Manic Bloom

The Beyond Radio Presents universe has a new podcast. It is something I am very proud of and excited about. A special and unique way to interview musicians coming from a fan's POV and musicians promoting other musicians. Let the lovefest begin.

This is the inaugural episode of our artist interview podcast (a two-parter). The title, 8Trax, harkens back to the era of the 8 Track tapes and indicates that 8 main songs will be discussed. The interview style is set up as follows. The artist brings 3 of their lesser-known songs that they love to the table and I do the same. The conversation moves through the stories of these songs and of course, leads down many roads. I felt that proceeding in this manner gets people deeper into an artist while my approach is that of a fan. The remaining 2 tracks are from different artists we wanted the other to hear. I love the idea of artists promoting other artists.

With my weekly personal chart background I have delved deep into many artist's catalogues. For these indie rockers from Nashville, I charted 20 songs from their 3 records with all but one making my weekly top 20 and 12 of them going to #1. Yes, I am an absolute fan.

Even though they haven't put out new music since 2015 this year they have been featured on 6 episodes of Beyond Radio Presents so far. A 2-part episode comparing them to major bands of the last 50 years (Queen, Live, Muse, etc.), a most beautiful interview, and snippets from the interviews that became their own mini-episodes.

I explained the premise of 8trax to them and they wanted to be guinea pigs for the pilot episode. Clearly, there was still much to discuss as it is another 2-parter. David, Hildee (Jeff), and Andy are fun, cerebral, spiritual, introspective, and serious (I'm sure the same can be said for the missing members, Jeff and Matt). I consider them a gift unto my life. Most importantly, their music deserves to be heard.

In all over 30 songs were discussed or mentioned and all but one of those can be found on the companion playlist on Spotify and Apple Music.

The Music Party #5's

The #5’s include 3 songs that were my #1 of the year, “Life Is A Highway” in ‘92, “Pink Motel” by the Glorious Sons in 2021, and “Sing” by My Chemical Romance in 2012. One of the most powerful remakes of all-time is also included, “The Sound Of Silence” by Disturbed. Nickelback and Christina Aguilera show up twice and Jewel sort of does back-to-back. “Foolish Games” was #5 in 1997 and in 1998 it was Fastball’s “The Way”. The beginning of that song is the sound of someone flipping through the radio dial and Jewel’s voice is heard for about a second. Another interesting Jewel anecdote is that she showed up at #4 (“You Were Meant For Me”), #5 with the aforementioned “Foolish Games” (both in the same year), and in 2002 #6 with “Standing Still”.

Latest Podcast episodes

Three recent episodes, the first is an update of an episode from April 2020 featuring Guuster and some of my all-time favorite songs. I'm going to see Guster tomorrow evening with the Boston Pops Orchestra.

As the title suggests we start to explore the bridges in songs and this leads to a '70s band popping up again, a ghost singer (?), a '90s music magazine trend, and 2 of my favorite albums of all-time. I test Jeff's memory (some things click, others don't) and we end with an intense vocalist whose legacy is tragic on more than one level. Oh and a guest appearance by a couple of members of Manic Bloom.

This is the full conversation with the members of Manic Bloom about "Army".

You can get the direct downloads of the episodes at the link above or find the episodes on Spotify.

Email Me your feedback, chart, link, etc.
