Nightsounds

One of the sponsors of InternetMonk is Broken Road Radio. BRR is an internet radio station playing “music for grown ups.” Jim Park hosts a live morning show and then keeps us going throughout the day with a great selection of music, some old, some new, always fun.

Jim has asked me to host a program in the evening we’re calling Broken Road Nightsounds (honoring the late, great Bill Pierce). I did the first show last week, and had a good time. I had not “done radio” in about 15 years, but it seemed to come back to me. I wanted to invite you to listen in if you need a way to unwind. Nightsounds is on Thursday nights at 10 o’clock Eastern (9 to those of us on sensible Central time).

You can listen by clicking on the link on the right side of this page. I really think Jim is on the edge of radio as it will be used in the future. Check it out and see if you agree.

  1. Nice to hear your voice, Jeff. I tuned in to Over the Rhine, then Carlos Santana, then you. Ramble on and play the good music.

    Now it’s Crosby Stills and Nash. Cool.

  2. I don’t see the place to click to listen to the radio, but I did a search online and found the website and clicked there to listen. I thought I may catch Jeff since he started at 10 pm Eastern and it’s now 10:25 but I don’t think it is him talking there now but I may be wrong.

  3. Ah Jeff…. I just clicked and there was Rosemary Clooney singing Pennies from Heaven.

    Then I had this image of you in 20’s Jazz in my head, dressed in pinstripe trousers held by braces, wearing a bowtie and a felt fedora, Brylcreem shined hair and a cuban in your mouth while the vinyl was turning ;-)

    • Or the image of Donald Fagan on the cover of “Nightfly” — that’s how I’m picturing it!
