“I was born in this town, lived here my whole life…”

During a recent trip to my hometown of Lexington, Kentucky, I had the opportunity to go back on the air at WRFL 88.1 FM for an alumni show. Co-host Brian Manke joined me for two hours of classic college rock (with a few new things thrown in), and reminiscing about my time at the station.

(Full disclosure: I didn’t mention this on the air, but I was in the band Overhead. The song Misinformed was written by Brian Fifield and myself, recorded and self-released in 1995. Brian is singing lead.)

“Gold is the color, in concentrate / Power in its purest state…”

I’m really excited about this installment of The Beat Bash, which is slower, darker, and harder. The BPM averages 94 beats per minute. The slow stuff can often be challenging to mix, but my favorite episode to date is the one from January 9th, which is also slow BPM (around 105). I’ve listened to that one 2:1 over any other episode.

In the interest of trying something different I’ve put together this collection of songs that I tend to listen to in the middle of the night when I can’t sleep. They definitely set a mood, so I’ve left off the show intro and included an anonymous phone message from someone who happens to be a regular listener.

Try listening in the dark. With headphones.
