The Noble Art of Letting Go (Playlist #104)

“letting go”

This week’s show title is inspired by the title of Rebekka Kirijord’s song (and album) of the same name that was part of this week’s playlist. It seemed fitting given all of the change, uncertainty, and...well, seasonal franticness that is around us at this time. But, feel free to interpret as you see fit. I finally got my music library settled (see last week’s show for more) into a new app and system that I am very happy far! If you want to know or learn more about my process, feel free to contact me. I am happy to share my process and solution. As far as the music featured on the show, today, this week’s playlist was filled with tracks from albums that made a few best of 2016 lists, as well as some personal favorites that I longed to hear (more discoveries from my library!), and some seasonal tunes as well. A nice and varied mix.

Don't forget that you can listen to all of the music from the last episode, “Research in the Virtual Attic” (click here). This week's artwork, “letting go” is by yours truly.

Thanks for listening!
