This Mixtape Life: TV on the Radio (4-22-11)

Entertainment Podcast
Recorded by Nathan Mattise

I record a weekly podcast for TheNextGreatGeneration.com because one of the multimedia editors there is a Newhouse colleague. They need a new place for me to host the audio file because my laptop is in the shop, thus the return of Trivial Podcasts.

The show is simple: Each week (like Ira Glass) I choose a theme, but bring songs instead of stories on that theme. In light of recent tragedy involving TV on the Radio bassist Gerard Smith, a show honoring both him and the band seemed right.

Podcast available to stream below, playlist of all songs on the podcast after the jump, posting old episodes of This Mixtape Life here coming soon.

June CNY Music Podcast Part II… (may actually wait for early July).

As advertised in “Part I” of the CNY Music Podcast for June ’09, the In Pursuit of the Trivial’s mid-year list of 2009’s best albums so far is in the works…

We want to get it right though.

The best albums mid-way discussion will be pushed ’til early July to A) incorporate a full six months of music and B) ensure the discussion has more than just one voice guiding it. Until then, consider “Part I” to be the full 20+ minutes of CNY Music Podcasting for June (and if you were looking for our June show reviews and the comprehensive list of concert dates in June/early July, well, you’re still in luck).

June CNY Music Podcast: Phantogram visits Syracuse (and does a quick interview!)

Geography | Entertainment Podcast
Recorded and produced by Nathan Mattise

This month’s podcast is so monumental it’ll need to be split into two parts. Part one is devoted entirely to CNY Music News. The most pressing issue is the big upcoming concert by Phantogram on Friday, June 12 at Funk N’ Waffles here in Syracuse (8 p.m. doors). They’re making their way into town soon but before then…

…they took time out of their schedules (literally they were doing some organizing work on their new t-shirts) TO CALL IN FOR A QUICK INTERVIEW!

Check it out and read on for some of the interview highlights after the jump.
