Here's the next in the, City From The Roof soul mix series. This episode continues in the vein of the 1960s-early-1970s, featuring a range of styles from deep sad ballads to big shaking stompers. All of the songs came from original forty-fives in my collection. There's a couple scratchy ones here, which only add to the beautiful and mystical atmosphere of vinyl. Thank you for listening. -TLG

Here is the new mix. One hour of melodic post-punk, gothy-shoegaze and related alternatives from the 1980s and one from the early-90s.There's some really good stuff here. All the music came from original 45s, LPs and 12"s. Thank you for listening. -TLG

I dedicate this melody to my friends, Rain and Heidi, because I love them.

Here's my first mix of 2016. Inspired by a recent listen of a Buzzcocks record. I decided it was time for something fresh to the podcast, so I mixed up a batch of UK punk sides from 1977-86. Most of these records are from my collection from high school in the 80s. I wanted to create a broad range of sounds and moods. Happy new year to my listeners, let's make it a good one! -Dedicated to Joel Dison RIP- Thank you for listening. -TLG

La Valse du Diable

The waltz of the devil. That is how I feel about the attacks on Paris and on the rest of the world this last week. I have been to France twice and I love it so very much. I have very fond memories of Paris and an emotional connection to it. I have created this hour-long mix of French music from 1936-59. There are very sad ballads, deep and moody Parisian jazz and haunting vocals. Here the traditional mixes with songs in English, about Paris. The atmosphere seems to convey the despair and tragedy. This is dedicated to the people of France and to the city that I love so much. Thank you for listening. -TLG

Deepest Dream

Here's the new one. A very atmospheric journey into hard-to-describe sounds and genres. I never know how to explain the music I put on these particular mixes. Perhaps, dream-pop, shoegaze at times? ambient? post-electronic, chilled out indie-folk? I couldn't say for sure but there are flavors of all these things, placed here and there, for a very unique listening experience. All of the music, recorded in the 2000's, came from my records. Thank you for listening. -TLG

There Was No Moon

A fresh hour of moody viper jazz and blues from 1921-45. It begins with a set of haunting instrumentals then slowly works into rhythmic vocal songs. I imagine a hand-rolled cigarette getting snuffed on a rainy sidewalk by a wet wing-tip shoe. A fog bank is rolling in and a revenant whisper calls from no place at all. Who's there? Thank you for listening. -TLG

Back by popular request. This is the third volume of the City From the Roof series, a 1960s soul mix. This one hour journey deep into the heart of early to late-1960s soul comes straight from original forty-fives. Impossibly sad ballads, high-powered stompers and assorted mid-tempo sides. This is dedicated to a friend of mine, Wyatt, of Line Defined Tattoo. A true artist and great appreciator of these unique soul compilations. Thank you for listening. -TLG

Croton's Ghost

Here's a collection of 1930s-1940s western swing. An hour of swinging rural rhythm and ominous ballads recorded from vinyl. Road music, that's what I call it. Music for camping and for impossibly hot back roads.

Where have we been in our lives? Where will we go? What new places wait quietly at the end of summer as it approaches? They whisper softly. Sirens of dust and of rock and of expansive adventure.

Thank you for listening -TLG

When We Crossed at Wild Horse

This is a collection of old-time, folk-blues and mountain music with themes that include love, friendship, war and the passage of time. A one-hour aural road trip deep into the Utah back country. Wild Horse is a dusty back road outside of Goblin Valley, that crosses a small river. The songs are dark, thoughtful and mixed with beautiful instrumentals and ballads. All of the songs are from original vinyl from the 1970s and 1980s. Thank you for listening. -TLG

A Vast Nowhere

A Vast Nowhere is an hour of industrial dance music. When I was selecting records for my last mix (Thousands of Years) I kept finding great songs that were not going to make it on that recording. I ended up setting aside a stack of records that would eventually make up the basis for this mix. So, here it is, the roots of techno. Serious and sharp electronic music from the 1980s and early 1990s. All of the tracks came from original vinyl. Thank you for listening. -TLG
