My brother Keith and I made this little tribute tape of Christmas music from the 1960's that reminded us of music that was played in our grandparent's store growing up.Mrs. Patmore's Trifle

I like challenging myself with themes for Christmas podcasts. Downton Abbey is one of my favorite TV shows ever, so this year I decided to make that my theme. A whimsical, zany, quirky, and absolutely gay and veddy veddy fey. I hope that you will step into my fantasy dream with me!Stephen and Friends

A small Broadway podcast to ring in the New YearTorn Flag
November 24, 2016 08:43 AM PST
I'm quite sure than many of us are going through a lot of emotions after the election. I know that I am still feeling stunned. I'd like to say in advance that this is no rant about Trump or any of you friends who may support him. After a few days of quiet thought after my initial shock wore off I thought it would be helpful for me to make a "piece" that would share some of my inner thoughts in the way I best express myself, through music. As you might guess from the title: "Torn Flag" this was not an easy experience, but after days of working on it and revising it I had what I was looking for: some catharsis. I'm not sure how it will affect anyone else, nor am I sure how many others will be interested in it, but sharing music is what I do.
This is not dance music. Is is a collage of styles, much of it instrumental. The vocals are either overtly or subtly political in nature ( think 60s ) with the instrumentals meant to either suggest a skewing on and off the course or simply an abstract way to express tension. As in all good dramas I hope this one has not only tension, but release as well.SLEAZEBALL NYC - The First Set

There was an expression I used for that time at all those fantastical parties at Roseland between say 7am and closing that I called "the rarified atmosphere". The frenzy was over and now the masses on the dance floor and I settled into a long sexy groove that undulated in waves and moments..where everyone was onboard for what we all call The Trip. It wasn't just called morning music, it wasn't just called sleaze....it had just as many elements of peak. Everyone on the floor was just "there". I think you all know what I mean. The producers of Evolution Of A Dancer and Yuki Productions have created a new party called Sleazeball NYC that is all about being in that long moment of sexiness- this is the first set of the ten hour party.The RITES Of Style Part Two - Valves And Smoke

Ritual Of Sound And Time

Of all the events I have DJ'd over the years, this was one of my favorites. It took place in The AIDS Memorial Grove in Golden Gate Park. this is an event where you are free to let your musical imagination run wild. To completely let go of convention and simply play from the heart. This set is wildly eclectic but always beautiful and uplifting. Classics, Classical, Vocal, Instrumentals. 4 hours of bliss.

A two hour podcast of dark, intriguing tribal house - innovative modern and deep. Created my Michael Fierman and John Ceglia. Enjoy mixes and overlays that last forever and take you down underneath the dark cloak of imagination.
This is the perfect venue for me to share my non dance music along with the performances one expects of me. I have a wide and eclectic range of style which no doubt my followers have heard many a time when I will try to merge some of my early influences into a dance party. I have played such diversities as Mahler, Joni Mitchell and The Doors at Black Parties. Since the late 80's I started making short 75-90 minute pieces of abstract, themed acoustic music and to this day those little music projects are my most treasured creative outlets. I have begun sharing a few of them here. I hope you will take time to give them a listen as well as my dance parties
