VINTAGE RT: FIFTEEN FEET OF PURE, WHITE SNOW

Well hello, strangers. This vintage retrotransmission mix, a dreamy, mellow and hypnotic one from fall 2012, is perfect for the winter solstice, which is upon us this very night. This is full of everything I like to listen to when the winter really begins to come down and we’re shrouded in sudden darkness: Death in June, Cocteau Twins, Current 93, Nico, Angels of Light, Psychic TV, Swans, Kate Bush, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Joy Division, Tear Garden, The Legendary Pink Dots, Sisters of Mercy, Clan of Xymox, Depeche Mode, etc. Listen on repeat and hibernate until the crocus appears from the frost…

VINTAGE RT: AUTUMN EQUINOX

After a long hiatus while I moved across the country and settled in, retrotransmission is back! On the eve of the Autumn Equinox, and in celebration of the dropping mercury, I felt it appropriate to post one of my many fall playlists. This one comes from Fall 2012 and features a lot of bands I listen to when it gets cooler out: Front 242, Psychic TV, The Tear Garden, Skinny Puppy, Love and Rockets, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Tones on Tail, 6 Comm, Depeche Mode, Swans, The Legendary Pink Dots, The Creatures, Joy Division, Dead Can Dance, Clan of Xymox, and more. I hope this gets you in the mood for the greatest season there is.

VINTAGE RT: NEW YORK CITY IS THE PLACE WHERE

Tonight I’m DJing a vinyl set with a friend from NYC. In honor of that, and the fact that I’ll soon be living again in New York, I’m posting a vintage retrotransmission playlist from fall 2012 simply titled “NYC” featuring tracks from Suicide, The Velvet Underground, Lou Reed, Lounge Lizards, Swans, Patti Smith, Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers, Jim Carroll, Dead Boys, Blondie, Ramones, New York Dolls, Richard Hell, Television, Misfits, Sonic Youth, and lots more. In other news, fresh retrotransmission playlists are in the works and will be up soon, so keep checking the site out every Monday and thanks for visiting!

VINTAGE RT: DIRTY BLACK SUMMER

Today I’m posting one of my favorite retrotransmissions of all time: The Black Show. This show, from spring 2013, features rock n roll, goth, punk, and post punk bands paying homage to black. Summer goth reigns.

Radio, Radio! New RT 6/1/15

 

For the second to last show EVER on rainydawg radio, I compiled punk, postpunk, rocknroll, and experimental tracks about the radio. Consider it a meta love letter to one of my favorite mediums. I’ve lived for broadcasting live on the radio and hope to get into it again when I’m back in NYC. What’s the ultimate radio tribute on this list? It’s hard to decide between the Ramones’ homage to the rocknroll radio of yore, The Modern Lovers’ ecstatic anthem about driving through your hometown blasting the car stereo, Velvet Underground’s sweet testament to music’s ability to be a life-altering savior or Joy Division’s hypnotic directive to dance, endlessly, to the radio…

This set list from several years ago, which I called “Retrotransmission for Retrotransmission” featured some of the punk and postpunk artists that inspired this radio show in the first place! Lots of the tracks on here were included on my original try-out set list that I presented to rainydawg radio. They told me my inclusion of Guided By Voices’ “Hot Freaks” sealed the deal.
