Beyond Radio is the place where music discovery and music nostalgia collide. It is your one-stop source for playlists, music charts, remembrances and recommendations. Our Podcast and music therapy playlists combine elements of nostalgia and discovery, while my blog entries reflect on our musical past through the lens of my personal charts from decades past. I weave a story that includes the connection between artists, chart facts and personal anecdotes that hopefully conjure a connection to the soundtrack of your own life. The current charts and playlists are updated monthly or bi-monthly (bi-weekly for the BR250) and are curated based on a passionate audience that produce their own personal charts weekly.
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.
