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

The Freshmaker Show is my weekly eclectic 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.

Episode 21: “All Of This Actually Is Broken”

All of the tracks from this show were released in the 1970s, just like me. This show was interrupted by a massive Audio Hijack/USB audio failure. Because tilderadio listeners are awesome, they stuck around and I managed some kind of recovery toward the end. Everything collapsed midway through “September Gurls.” For the next show I’ll start with that one and play two tracks intended for this show that didn’t make it due to the crash, as well as other 1970s classics cut for time.
