Sundays with DJ Drew on BTR
Happy December!!!  Now that we’re firmly in that time between Thanksgiving and Christmas aka “shopping season” aka “all Christmas music all the time,” it’s important to have somewhere you can turn for a little non-Christmas music from time to time.  That’s what BTR is great for.  Sure, I may play a Christmas tune or two before the month is out, but for the most part, I’m still playing all the same great independent music that you hear all year round.  So take a break from your shopping and breathe some fresh musical air on the show today!
It’s not Christmas yet! Quit asking me about it!!

This week, it’s the last week of Deerhoof’s “La Isla Bonita” as Album Of The Month (or is it…?), and we have some classic Robert Wyatt tracks from his days in Soft Machine & Matching Mole. Also, a bunch of other great tracks from the likes of The Love Me Nots and Ty Segall (& His Erotic Beagle?).
DJ Wynn shares his favorite singles of 2014 and some memories that go along with them. This mix featues music from Angel Olsen, Flying Lotus, Laetitia Sadier, Ty Segall, Slowclub, and Bonnie Prince Billy.
I hope that everyone has fully recovered from their Turkey Day pig-out session.  Or extended family-time session.  Or whatever crazy tradition you happen to go all our for on Thanksgiving!  If you need a little more help with your recovery, we’ve got a great show packed with so many of the great genres that BTR has to offer.  So have a listen, and then make sure to check out BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram, and SoundCloud!

Tune in to hear how to cure homesickness is New York City!
This week, we “improve” some of the songs with the use of a digital drum pad thing. It is quite fun, but loses its novelty very quickly.

Enjoy this mix alongside DJ Emily today!

Happy September Saturday!  I hope everyone out there has been enjoying the sweater weather- I know I am.  There’s nothing better than being able to wear something snuggly AND get away with open toed shoes.  If you need your early fall perfectly soundtracked, then BTR is the sweater/sandals music combo you’ve been looking for!  We’ve got amazing new stuff on the show today from a Swedish band named Goat, an Irish band named So Cow, and a Canadian man named, of course, Moonface.  Stay tuned to check it all out!

This week, it’s a new Album Of The Month by Ty Segall, and a load of other stuff that Iain is ambivalent about pretty much. So, nothing new there then! Jason however, is over the moon about every single one of these songs, and the bands that made them. Seriously. He really is. We’s 100% raring to go! Am you?

On this week’s show, I’m joined by Joshua Brueckner, founder of an innovative new service called SKINNYFATTIES. Rather than relegate necktie styles to the dictates of trends and designers, Joshua and his team put the power of customization into their clients’ hands, tailoring their ties to individual preferences and needs. On today’s show, you’ll hear Joshua talk about the genesis of his idea to tailor ties, the growth of that idea into SKINNYFATTIES, the services they offer clients, some of the criteria they take into consideration when tailoring a customer’s tie, some of his favorite tie labels and designers, some new tie trends on the horizon, and more. Plus, a playlist full of the latest releases – brand new music from Sean Rowe, Ty Segall, Roadkill Ghost Choir, and others. So join us for a lesson in the power of the tie, right here on BreakThru Radio!

That’s photographer Andy Freeberg talking about his project called Guardians. It’s one of two body’s of work he has been working on over the last few years. Both of his shows depict people occupying space with works of art, but the worlds Andy documents in these two shows couldn’t be more different.
This week on the show there were so many good new garage-type bands dropping records! The Real Kids! Alvvays! Spider Bags! White Fence! Monomyth! I loved it! It was easy to put together a very fun show for you today, so whether you’re at the beach or BBQing in your own back yard, this is a great playlist to put on for your Saturday. And don’t forget come Monday, when you’re slumped over your computer again trying to distract yourself at work, BTR has a TON of amazing videos and articles for you to check out! Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, and Instagram for all of the latest!

Let’s listen to some beautiful music together! Alt-country hour is ready for you this Sunday on BTR!
Imagine yourself on a roller coaster. You’re towed up to the top of the first drop, over 500 meters off the ground — taller than the empire state building. and you’re presented with a button. If you decide you still want to go, you push it. As you fall nine times the force of gravity pins you to your seat and begins to force the air form your lungs. As you enter the first of seven 360 degree vertical loops the blood rushes to your lower extremities and you begin to experience tunnel vision. A sense of euphoria sets in, as your brain — due to a lack of oxygen — diverts its efforts to sustaining essential bodily functions. Color slowly drains from your vision, and by the end of the second loop you’ve lost consciousness. Five loops on the coaster remain, but by the time the third is complete, you’re dead.
