It's time for turkey on BTR's Roadside Assistance, presented by United Airlines! Listen as 8 different BTR DJs present 8 different interpretations on what kind of soundtrack goes best with family and food!
In this episode we look to the different research that opens our minds to the true balance we strike within our biological selves, even down to the DNA sequence itself.
It’s Pop Week here on BTR, and who better to feature on today’s show than Leesa Evans, stylist and costume designer behind such pop culture comedy classics as Bridesmaids, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, This Is 40, Trainwreck, and the upcoming Zoolander 2? Not only is Leesa a talented stylist and costumer designer, she is a totally lovely person who was an absolute delight to speak with! Leesa has some wonderfully thoughtful, insightful things to say about the process of costume design and cultivating style, so join us as she shares a bit about her experiences. You’ll hear from Leesa about what she learned as the daughter of a fashion designer, the joy she takes in the collaborative nature of costume design, some of the nuanced details and decisions that go into a film’s overall style, dressing the lovely ladies of Bridesmaids, her own go-to Halloween costume, and more! And for my parting playlist: a mix featuring some of my favorite pop tracks from recent years, including songs from Lia Ices, Sylvan Esso and The Mynabirds. Come join the pop fashion fun with Leesa Evans on BTR’s Sew & Tell!
Get ready for a fantastic 90-minute set with your host, DJ Emily!

For BTR’s Open Week, Sew & Tell goes meta! I had the great opportunity to speak with Rob Sanchez and Pavan Bahl, two-thirds of the dynamic host trio behind Fashion Is Your Business, a great new podcast focused on the intersection of fashion, business and tech. In addition to hosting the weekly show, both men are entrepreneurs in the fashion field themselves: Rob just launched his own innovative menswear label, Ralph & Remington, while Pavan is the founder of a unique community and fashion/tech incubator called Open Source Fashion. On today’s show, you’ll hear from Rob and Pavan about their own individual projects, the development of Fashion Is Your Business, how the radio format can serve as a unique platform for fashion, a few of their own favorite fashion pieces, upcoming events and developments for Open Source Fashion and Ralph & Remington, and more! And in the mix I’ve got a great playlist of indie tracks for you, featuring new work from electro-pop artists like Painted Palms, Brika, and The Mynabirds. So open yourself up to the business of fashion, with Fashion Is Your Business on BTR’s Sew & Tell!

DJRePete’s serving up a dose of music discovery today with ballads from the likes of Flo Morrissey, music before you can buy it by Starlight Girls, and new beats from Little Boots.

It’s Surface Week on BTR, and fashion celebrates surface with print and pattern. On today’s show, I’m joined by dynamic entrepreneur Jesse Finkelstein who, along with his sister Meredith, is behind the creation of two unique design platforms: Print All Over Me and Byco. Print All Over Me (or PAOM) offers its users the opportunity to create digital patterns, then order garments or accessories printed with that design. Byco is a one-stop shop for designers who want to take their ideas from paper to production. Both sites put the power of creativity and fashion design into, well, YOUR hands, and serve as invaluable resources for independent designers. On today’s show, Jesse will talk about the formation of Byco and PAOM, the production process behind both concepts, the components of a successful design, Print All Over Me’s overnight success, Byco’s recent collaboration with ELLE, upcoming projects, and more. And I’ve got a playlist filled with fresh indie releases, including the latest from Wilco and The Mynabirds, along with tracks off the debut albums from “musical pranksters” Silvertron Youth Choir and up-and-coming British electro-artist Georgia. So get your surface ready for a stylish fall with Sew & Tell on BreakThru Radio!
