I don’t often have the opportunity to do a radio show on my birthday and a birthday means  some leeway in indulgence or nostalgia or both. I am constantly trying to balance the new [this addiction to  new sounds] with the amazing ability of [old] music to reassemble entire architectures of nostalgia, of being able ton conjure up entire summer feelings and the feelings attached with summer from glee and freedom, exploration and melancholy, loneliness and the sound of kids playing. So, for this show I decided to combine birthday thematic details with the sounds of summer: ocean waves, the sounds of kids playing at the beach, crickets, cicadas, wind blowing through trees with dry dusty leaves. Almost as much as scents, music or sounds from a bygone time of some memorable glory of time “wasted” doing nothing but playing, wandering, exploring, enjoying – how vividly visual images, melancholy and specific flashes of moments pass before me as I listen to what I have assembled.
