We laughed, we cried, and then it rained.

I probably took too long to release this list, I had it ready weeks ago, but just kept getting a few more songs to add to it. I don't know where you are, but where I live summer is over and it is both cold and rainy.

Early nightfall. It begins.

The Numbers

I saw that I had added some listener stats to the last update, and I cannot resist the opportunity to keep that as a focus. Obviously, it matters a lot who is listening, so I'd like to make a habit of providing updates on that.

This broadcast is licensed through Live365, so that is where I have metrics from. Roughly speaking, a view of the last 30 days as compared to this summer shows a pretty solid increase in average listeners. This might be seasonal, which is a good reason to keep an eye on it year over year. Speaking for 2023, the average daily listener number was 35 over the summer & I think it's close to 60 now.

I remember in the summer of 2019, there were months with only a handful of unique listeners. So having around 60 daily listeners for our radio channel is amazing.

That will provide a nice baseline for when we roll out CHILLFILTR® 4.0 and start to ramp up our marketing once again.

Viv & Riley are back with a fun new release "Imaginary People" — as these roots-pop masters move subtly in the direction of a more lush and electric sound without losing sight of the melodic simplicity that made them great. With an equally confident step in the direction of Country for the title track, it's a home run around the bases of roots, pop, rock, and folk, from one of my personal faves.

Rosi Golan just got onto onto my radar (a few years later than I should admit); Margaret Glaspy has quietly become really a one-of-a-kind artist with the triple threat of a laser wit, amazing voice, and the kind of songwriting talent that makes you wish you'd written it, every time. Lydia Luce just dropped "Saline" which is upbeat, dance-friendly, and hints at a slight shift in mood from the one-time queen of brood-pop.

Sumbuck, Hiss Golden Messenger, Mick Flannery, there's just a lot of great music out at the moment. With so much crazy in the world, my only advice is to pray for peace in whatever way makes sense to you.
