“Hello And Welcome!" - Daryl Grove (1979-2020)

The Freshmaker Show is my twice-weekly streaming radio show. I play a variety of stuff suiting my varied and generally somewhat obscure tastes, including rock, jazz, and soul, much like I played on college radio in the 90s, when I was known as DJ Mentos the Freshmaker (hence the name of this show.) I also hang out on chat during the show, so we can talk about the music or whatever else. It’s something I look forward to every week, and I hope you will, too.

Schedule

  • tilderadio at 0000 UTC on Tuesdays. Chat on tilde.chat in the #tilderadio channel. The Tuesday show is mostly indie rock, classic alternative, and occasional punk.
