About the station

Perhaps you are already familiar with some of the songs in this collection, perhaps not. Even if you are, you have not heard them in quite this way anywhere else, because this is not just a mixtape of songs. Granted, I think that they are all great songs and a mixtape of these songs would indeed be a very good one, but that is not what this is. This is more of a series of concept albums, with each one becoming more conceptual. I have dropped in dozens of audio clips throughout, so that the versions of the recordings included here are different than any other ones. You may recognize some of these clips, or not. It really doesn't matter whether or not you know where they came from; it's not about guessing/recognizing the clips. Some may find it fun to see how many clips they recognize, and I have included detailed liner notes on archive.org so that you can look up any of them, but the guessing-game aspect of this recording is not really what it's about for me. If that's what you like about my mashups though, great; I'm glad for any enjoyment they bring! For me It's about hearing the connections between the various clips and the music with which they are paired. I have selected clips and included them in certain places based upon whether I thought they would add to the conversation (figuratively speaking) going on in a given song, or a theme that I've developed for a song. Sometimes the clips comment on the songs, sometimes vice versa. In short, the clips are meant to interact with the music in a way that works for the listener on face value, regardless of whether the listener recognizes the source of them. Like any good literary reference, they are meant to stand on their own; if the listener gets anything deeper, it's a bonus!
