NEW FOR OCTOBER 15, 2006 All Hallows Eve. We at The Best Radio You Have Never Heard are trying to put the fright back into Fright Night. What with pop culture dominating Halloween these days we thought it was time for the comeback of the monsters and the devil. Vampires, slashers and witches, ghosts and goblins ! That's what Halloween is all about, right ? Dressing up as one of the foursome from Sex and The City, a cast member of Grey's Anatomy or an inanimate object (oh, say a bottle of Bud Light) should get your Halloween privileges revoked for life, but I digress. So tuck this sucker under your witches hat or robes, and stick it in the player at the Halloween party of your choice. A brilliant experiment in terror. 1.

NEW FOR AUGUST 15, 2006 As we get about to this point in the year you start to hear people lamenting the end of summer. The dichotomy here is that mid-August can be the hottest time of the season. What does this have to do with this mid-month podcast Beer, Blood, and Piss ? Sweating a bunch, cooling down with cold beer in a club that is 100Âº and enjoying the aromas ? Finding the former "beer distributor" in the back room riddled with more holes in him than the Swiss cheese? Nah.

From The Archive With last months archive entry Stuff, Different Order, it doesn't seem right not to follow it up with the companion piece More Stuff, Different Order.

From The Archive This months Archive title might be one the eldest of the bunch. Originally recorded in 2002, I took the liberty to re-edit this one for it's return into the list.

NEW FOR JULY 15, 2006 The mid-month podcast for July was in the can and awaiting upload when the sad news arrived that legendary rock icon and Pink Floyd founder Syd Barrett had died at the age of 60. This event struck a chord with me and the results are this July's mid-month new release. The previously intended title will have to wait until August 1, 2006. This podcast is a tribute to Syd Barrett. Even though of course there is some Pink Floyd music in the show, it is more of a tribute to Syd's vision. I like to think of it as traveling music for Syd's iPod as he makes the trek to the Gates of Dawn, or perhaps some gardening music for the great beyond as, in his recent past, gardening was one of Syd's few hobbies. In the end, you might find it an atypical Best Radio release, but it will likely have a place in your catalog. After you hear it once, it will become one of those shows you'll feel compelled to "pull off the shelf" for late night introspective journeys . . . 1. Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts 1-5) - Pink Floyd 2. See Emily Play - David Bowie 3. Astronomy Domine - Pink Floyd 4. I Had Too Much To Dream - The Electric Prunes 5. Exposure - Robert Fripp 6.

From The Archive Straight from the sublime to the ridiculous, I bring you this month's lighthearted back catalog episode.
