EMUSIC is an electronic, ambient, and space music show, that airs each Thursday
at 11:00 pm on WDIY 88.1 FM, Allentown and Bethlehem, PA and 93.9 FM in Easton,
PA and Phillipsburg, NJ.
||May 8, 2003
On this show, I continued the month-long focus on the Sombient Drone Series, a
trilogy of releases that codify the definition of dark ambient. The Featured
CD at Midnight was "Environmental," disk two of "A Storm of Drones" from the
Sombient Drone Series on the Sombient label.
The Vinyl Starter was from the LP "The Planets" by Tomita on RCA Read Seal.
I played the music of Mother Mallard's Portable Masterpiece Company who will be
at the next Gathering on May 10 in Philadelphia.
