A change in plans, but not intent, frequency or variety: I am new to this online radio thing, especially the technical logistics of mounting these playlists in a fluid, meaningful way. I started out in terrestial left-of-the-dial broadcasting – programming shows, with themes, segues and bolts of impulse. That is how I curate Fricke's Picks Radio.
That won't change. But this episode comes with a link to a new, permanent playlist, a running, growing archive of Fricke's Picks Radio. Follow the playlist and you get everything, including each new "episode" as it goes up. I will be writing fewer breakdowns on the music in this column. But it won't be that hard to detect what I'm up to, where I've been and what's new or returned to my stereo.
I hope you enjoy the listening as much as I do.
