This program is about anger and was webcast on January 25th, 2015 on Plundercast and DFM. It is a hybrid show of the past un-released programs 'Escape from Anger' and 'Angry Music' along with some surprises from the current and recent era. This show seeks to be a cathartic release designed to soothe the savage beast-ness out in the listening ether. We are using the same graphic picture from the now defunct 'Angry Music' mix (sometimes these programs take years to truly develop into themselves). This mix spends time on remixed sequences philosophically examining anger along with inter-cut medley flourishes of mash-ups and other 90's era 'complaint rock' sets, interspersed with other tangential material - a 3 hour program.
Been meaning to do this program for a while now: songs and musical pieces about the rain. This was well-received and webcast on Dec. 14th, 2014, on NCN and DFM out of Amsterdam, in the midst of a big thunderstorm in California (which was in the midst of a drought). Wistful and moving works, elegantly blended, mostly punctuated by the soothing susurration of rainfall. - 3 hour mix. Includes Episode 13 of Midnight Voicejail: 'Weather'.
Webcast on Plundercast and DFM on January 15th, 2010: this is our exhaustive, and uniquely-blended, (almost 4 hour) Floyd-a-thon presented in a mix of Pink Floyd mash-ups, rarities, versions, variations, mixes, remixes, NCN pieces, live performances, mods, and covers. This mix runs the gamut of their career from the Syd Barrett era to their respective solo careers. Includes material from 'Deconstructing the Wall', a group collaboration by members of the Negativland fan mailing list 'Snuggles'. This program is part of a quadrilogy of PInk Floyd Tributes by NCN: including 'Best Bricks', 'Dark Side Variations' and 'The No Floyd Pink Floyd Show'.

Possibly NSFW cultural overview: This was from October 12th, 2014--a mix all about 'Da Butt' aka your rear end. A universal subject. Many mash-ups, but not restricted to those. Quite a lot of hip hop and rap songs are represented in this mix, but also country, punk, comedy and yes, rock. The last half hour is the complete radio edit of Midnight Voicejail Episode 25: Perry Stone in which a 1980s Silicon Valley voicemail community member's box is mistaken for the hotline of a local shock shock radio host. See mix contents in ID3 tags of the mp3 - 3 hours.
Webcast on October 5th, 2014--Sometimes melancholic and wistful With a lot of thanks to comic relief by the great DJ No Breakfast, which you should check out, this was almost called 'Covers and Such' or 'All That Comes My Way 5' and was based around a great Lorde Cover that happens in its third hour. You'll just have to read the playlist at mixcloud or in the tags to find out what all else is in it. 3 hour show - 128kbps.

As heard on August 10th, 2014 on DFM and Plundercast: The first two hours of this primarily dark and psychedelic mix is dedicated to sheep, while the final hour is about pigs and swine flu. The final hour is the radio edit version of 'If Pigs Could Fly (The Swine Flu Show)' and does contain some Robin Williams (RIP) in the mix as it turned out, and is a slightly different mod or mix from what has been heard in the past, such as on "Bob"'s Slacktime Funhouse on WREK, Atlanta.Some portions may be NSFW. Much Thanks to Rev. Xister of Subgenius for letting us use his Pink Floyd Animal Farm Remixes originally done for Slanderbob's show on KAOS Radio Austin, amongst the other variations on those songs. - 3 hours in total.
