This week we will look at personal correspondence. Any private communication revealing
private thoughts usually between just two people. It is often easier to put your true
feelings down on paper. Shared thoughts of devotional love. Despair and hope of lovers on
the edge. The loyalty of close friends and letters written with no intention of ever being
sent. On this episode we will sneak a peek at the dispatches of High On Isra, Mr....

This week, we will look at change beyond the tipping point. The “no going back.” Before and After. How we accept and adapt to our new situation will take every effort. Embracing a new future takes courage and a sense of practicality. Seeing it as a new morning requires faith and adaptability.

This week it is Pastoral Beats. Warm gentle Electronica that evokes memories of carefree and less stressful times. It is music of comfort and consolation led by deceptively simple melodies over increasingly intricate rhythms. The arty side of chill-out where each has their own unique style of swing.

This week we will look at our tricky relationship with darkness and light. Light shows what is apparent and actual. We see things for what they transparently are but in the darkness all things are possible. It is where we keep our anxiety, fears and desires. It allows us to keep secrets. Darkness does not judge.

This week we will look at espionage. It is spies and spooks, coups and active measures. It is a shadowy world. All cloak-and-dagger. Carried out by those we will never know. Of the things that are supposed to stay secret. Aiding with the reconnaissance on this episode of Idyllic Music are Karmacoda, Hector Zarate, Frank Dorittke, Tommy Ptolemy, DTR, and the Policy Wonks.

This week, we look back at the golden age of online music distribution. For much of the past two decades netLabels and OMD communities have provided a safe and easy way for musicians to upload their songs for distribution via a Creative Commons copyright. Recently, we have seen the demise of nearly all free OMD sites and only a handful of netLabels remain. The gatekeepers are all behind paywalls. Thankfully many netLabels have uplo...

This week, we'll look at the ability to forgive. It's a mistake to think forgiveness is universal. While nearly everyone agrees the aggrieved and forgiven find the experience positive, not everyone is wired with the ability to move on from an insult. Research seems to suggest it could be genetic. Sharing a mixed of views on the subject are Dive Index, Fascinating Earthbound Objects, Soft and Furious, Rich Sudney and Down Re...

This week, we'll look to quiet the mind. It's a defense mechanism really as we try to cope with a world that has seemingly sped up beyond our capacity to keep up. The stress and anxiety it creates is often covered over by the cacaphony that is 21st century life.

This week, it's headphone electronica. Music created with the meticulous detail that only listening through headphones can reveal. It's electronica mixed, produced and, ultimately, consumed by people wearing headphones. It's created by indie musicians working with twenty first century tools to create, edit and sometimes perform their work. Headphone electronica isn't for dancing yet it can be danceable rather it is ...

This week we'll examine a life at sea. Joseph Conrad wrote that "There is nothing more enticing, disenchanting and enslaving." More troubling is what lies beneath the swells and awful stirrings of what Melville called the "hidden soul beneath. Hoisting the main sail for us on the episode of Idyllic Music are Band of Mad Women, IOTA, MMPSUF, Sleepy Town Manufacture, beat.dowsing and Leon Somov.

This week, we'll listen for harmonics. We mostly think of harmonics as an element of music but there is a more fundamental physical quality underneath it all. Wave patterns are all around us. We know its how sound and light move and that changes in these wave can influence our perceptions and moods. Checking the frequency with us on this episode of Idyllic Music are Sleepy Koala, Garaz, Dlay, MindsEye, Cutside and DU3normal.

This week, we'll try a little empathy. The ability to understand and share another person's feelings, experiences and emotions. It is a power sorely missed these days. Research seem to suggest there is a genetic basis to empathy, that some individuals are more prone to perspective taking. Now would be a good time to step up in the face of intolerance. Joining us on this episode of Idyllic Music are Ink Project, Planet B, Da...

This week, we'll look at the final season, the end of the cycle, of winters past and cold. It's a time many of us would like to hold up in bed for the duration, with it's shortened days and cold nights. Winter is a time for putting your head down and plowing ahead reassured by the certainty that this too shall pass. Our musical sweaters on this episode of Idyllic Music are Hungry Lucy, Winterstrand, Sara Grey, Mystral a...

This week, we'll look at the effort it takes to pull yourself together after a relationship ends. Some seek sympathetic ears while other withdraw into solitude. We'll hear just what it takes from General Fuzz, Kognitif, BASIC, The Ganzfeld Effect, and Reflection.

This week, it's regrets and reconciliation. Regrets? I've had a few but by and large, I've moved on. It seems a measure of success by how little regret we take to our graves. The trick, of course, is in deciding how much of your personal past you are willing to overlook. Making that judgment on this episode of Idyllic Music are We came as Strangers, Surek, Vienna Ditto, Knoto, Zebrat, and Helicalin.

This week, we'll look at proximity and happenstance. The idea that just by being near another person or event can change the future for better or worse. Mostly the difference is unnoticable in the noise but sometimes you may just think you see a pattern. Taking a look at where the ripples begin are Hypersleep, Tab and Anitek, Refold, All India Radio, Cling, Ben K. Adams and Little Glass Men.

This week we'll try to imagine the ends of the universe. It's one way to restore some perspective while your world is spinning around you. The vast emptiness of space, its cold, hollow expanse is the fact that we ignore while conjuring up tales of Death Stars and Restaurants. Taking a more expansive view are Rukirek, Dive Index, Jagoa, Me Zion Dread and Strad.

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
