It's the BEST of 2014, Part 1! VERY EXCITING!!
Sundays with DJ Drew on BTR
This is a special edition of The Thursday Mix. All Female Artists!! Lottie@btrtoday.com
Wow! I have my excellent PR/PA lady, Gemma, with me today. Some of you regular listeners may already be familiar with her, which I applaud. Not literally. What would be the point? That would just confuse her, and the listeners, unless I explained it beforehand, or straight after. Good music awaits.. Oh boy! I can't wait! Can you?
Wow! It's quite an education show today, and in places, almost autobiographical. "But Mr Jason!" I hear you say, "You didn't write any of the songs, so how can it be autobiographical?". Well, that shows what YOU know, cos I DID write one of the songs! So there! OK, it's probably the weakest song in the show, but I'm doin' my best!

Summer wedding marathon? Graduation parties galore? Baby and bridal showers by the dozen? No sweat! Today’s guests will keep you looking cool, collected and classic all summer long. Jolie Bensen and Sarah Elizabeth Dewey launched their line in 2010, and over the course of just four years, the Jolie & Elizabeth label has become synonymous with classic, feminine, vintage-inspired designs, presented with a subtle Southern accent. Each Jolie & Elizabeth piece is made in Louisiana, and as of last month, the label has contributed $420,000 to their local New Orleans economy. It’s no wonder that J & E finds fans all over the U.S., including Zooey Deschanel! On today’s show, Jolie and Sarah Elizabeth will talk about the friendship that founded their label, their commitment to local production, the Southern aesthetic of their designs, their “Do Watcha Wanna” motto, and more! Plus, a playlist that will get you summer-ready, with new music from L.A. singer-songwriter Devon Williams, Danish producer/DJ Tomas Barfod, New Jersey’s nine-piece rock outfit The Everymen, and more. So join us for fresh summer fashions that are ripe for the picking, right here on BTR!
It's You & Me Week on BTR! On today’s show, Dr. Michael A. Smith, author of "The Supplement Pyramid", joins us to talk about the growing importance of nutrients supplements, why our soil is part of the reason that our food isn’t giving us what our bodies need, and how we can begin a supplement regimen. And later, BTR DJ Jess Goulart, host of the Scotch and Cinema podcast on BTR, talks to Perry Bard, the brains behind a crowdsourced remake of the classic 1929 documentary, Man With A Camera.
Wow! This week's show is pretty bloody amazing, and I haven't even listened to it yet! So it MUST be good!! There's all sorts of stuff on it; from experimental 50s space pop from a nutter, to even older stuff from a little girl, and some new stuff that sounds like old stuff. Oh boy! I can't wait! Can you?

Wow! It's pretty much an Instrumental Special for you lucky listener today! There's all kinds (well, not all, but some) of music today, including classics from Shirley Temple (well, I think it's brilliant), some nice relaxing jazz, and many, many, lots more of stuff. Oh boy! I can't wait! Can you?
It's Subscription Week on BTR! On today's show, Greg Satell of Forbes magazine talks about subscription models in new and old media
It's David and Goliath week here on BTR, which is extremely appropriate, since I would say most of the music we play on the station definitely goes in the David category. It's also the first day of February, which means we're on the long back end of winter! Either way, we've got great music to keep your warm all Saturday long! And don't forget, follow BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram, and Soundcloud!

It's fitness week here on BTR, and I know we're all in that stage of the game where we're wondering if we'll keep our New Year's Resolutions. Well, I answer that question for myself with our first song, and then I play a whole bunch of awesome new ones for you, including tracks from Damien Jurado, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, and newcomers Daytona.

Well, this week's show is a right royal doozy, I can tell ya! And I'm not just saying that. I can confirm that there are at least two "Goosebump Moments", from personal experience. There are also at least two bands that I'd not heard before, and some old & rare classics. Oh boy! I can't wait! Can you? How will it all turn out??? Let's do a radio and see!

“Being resilient is a quality that you get over time, but you can also get it if you really believe in something and you’re not afraid to fail.” - John Patrick, of Organic 2013 was a banner year for Sew & Tell, and we’re not slowing down in 2014! The first guest of the year rings it in with a bang: designer John Patrick, founder of the exquisite line Organic and sustainable fashion visionary. Join us today as John Patrick shares about the ways in which Organic has developed and evolved over the last ten years, some of the critical changes he sees as necessary for long-term improvement in the fashion industry, and the importance of beautiful, timeless design. Plus, I have an improvement-themed playlist for you today that touches on the various aspects of an attempt to change, featuring tracks from the UK’s Treetop Flyers and The Stranglers, Canada’s Montag and The Besnard Lakes, along with brand new music from Daytona, The Pixies, and more. Join us on BreakThru Radio as we turn over a new fashion leaf for 2014!
