Episode #231: Turbines to Speed!

June 24, 2017

It’s the first weekend of summer but it’s no big deal. All the seasons blend together when you’re in this business. We finish one and then we’re on to the next. Wait, are we talking about seasons or about episodes of Your Favorite Podcast? Both, I guess. But we have a moment to tell you that this one has a little tribute, a nod to Bob’s Nobel speech, piano players of all sorts, lyrics that children should not hear, some movie music, and a gimmick or two, plus a little more. Please yourselves (and us too) with your gracious downloads.

Episode #228: Another Sleepy Dusty Scotch Plains Greenpoint Day

June 3, 2017

June comes in like a lion, busting out all over, and we love a Gershwin tune, but we have none for you today (sorry). Instead you’ll hear songs from olden days and songs from two weeks ago. Also you’ll hear songs about cats (actually one song and one cat, over and over), plus covers and instrumentals and outtakes and listener favorites and even an actual listener or two. Music we’ve never played before, and chat we’ve never chatted before, and probably never will again. Lend us your ears. Thank you kindly.

Episode #227: The Man in the Mack Said We Had to Go Back, So We Did

May 27, 2017

A holiday weekend without Full Duplex Radio is not something that we could allow so we made sure there would be a new episode out there. And take it from us, it’s right out there. Antiquarian statistics for the week: the oldest music is from 1956, the newest is from 2017. That alone proves our range and determination. Rain or shine, we’re usually there for you.

Episode #226: It’s 2017. Do You Know Where Your Children Are?

May 20, 2017

We counted, and it seems that half the music on this week’s program was recorded or written in the 1960s. Nothing earlier than about 1965. Sometimes it just turns out that way. But all the rest of it is newer. We fully expect that you’ll like it all. We hope so, but remember that there are no refunds. Have at it. Download away.

Episode #225: If Not for the Rain We Would Be Out There Having Fun

May 14, 2017

It’s our Mother’s Day episode but there’s very little that’s motherly about it. It’s the same kind of thing that all you children and mothers have come to expect from us: TV and movie music, too many versions of the same song, music as fresh as yesterday and older than time itself, ballads, rap, marimbas, and the usual bits and bobs, as our British friends say. Plus "more". We’re only a little late so we hope you’re still there to download and listen. It’s worth your time. "In our opinion."

May 6, 2017

When you listen to our program you might even hear your name spoken aloud! We’re still small enough to offer that service.
