Hosted by Macedonia, Radio BSOTS is a music podcast dedicated to independent rhythms and sounds from around the way to around the world. Genres covered include hip-hop, soul, jazz, funk, and electronic music.
I suppose it was a foolhardy notion that I would have this done by Election Day. Real talk: as long as this lands in the podosphere before November's over, I'll chalk that up as a win.
As the last installment of the Tranquil Beats series, I think this one is fa...

This is a delayed transmission, recorded in December of 2019 with finishing touches and edits done the following month. It's rather odd how I keep returning to this knowing the inevitable delays that will prevent the next episode from surfacing online sooner than I would like. The recording a...
After Episode #169 hit the Web in June of 2018, everything went quiet for the BSOTS podcast feed, but it's not like I planned it that way. Consistency existed in the radio broadcast form of this show, with a new episode airing on Bondfire Radio every oth...
"Every day breathing in the United States is an away game for the Black man."
-Rich Medina, DJ/Producer/Poet, Beat Society Podcast, Episode No. 8
The title of this episode first came to mind back in July of 2016, shortly after the police killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. Since then, it was put on the back burner and I knew I wanted to use it eventually. After hearing that Brother Sterling's killers weren&...

For the first time in Radio BSOTS history, a new year begins in BUCKWILD fashion. Honestly, I'm kinda surprised that this hasn't happened before. And seeing as how my 2018 has already proven to be challenging, it seems just as well that this show would prem...
It's been way too long since I've done a show like this, but the activity on the Internet surrounding net neutrality back in July (which has ramped up as of late with all the talks of repeals by the FCC) inspired me to reexamine the world of Creative Commons-licensed tunes again. Not only that, but the 3rd Annual Netlabel Day happened in July as well, releasing a ton of free and legal music for the people. I started mixing ...

In August of last year, I served as the guest curator for the Tranquil Beats playlist series on Bondfire Radio. This episode of Radio BSOTS features the cuts I chose to play on a Tuesday throughout that month.
This show was recorded in stages between the months of March and April 2017. I think the last time BSOTS got "buckwild" was in December of 2015, so this podcast has been long overdue for another primal scream. A lot has happened since then, both in my life and the world at large. There's plenty of music contained within this episode that speaks at length on the problems of the world today. At the same time, there's ...
This podcast episode is a twofold celebration. First off, this show marks the beginning of the 2017 podcast year for Radio BSOTS. Not only that, but this show is also being released as part of the 10th Anniversary Cupid's Hunt Podcast Collaboration. Since 2008, music lovers, DJs, and podcasters have been gathering together and releasing music mixes in honor of Valentine's Day. The celebration at Cupid's Hunt is a month-...
This episode was originally broadcast on Bondfire Radio August 19, 2016. It is dedicated entirely to the music of the Barely Breaking Even (BBE) Records label, which has been celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year. The playlist below represents a mere toe dip in the pool of their massive catalog, but it speaks to the diversity of this great label. Hope you enjoy the show.

Early on in 2016, Bondfire Radio began a playlist series called Tranquil Beats. Focused on chilled out instrumental music, this playlist opens and closes the broadcast day Monday through Friday (9 a.m. and 12 midnight, EST). A new guest curator is invited to select music to feature every month. I took on the guest curator role for August of 2016.
Normally, Bondfire asks for individual songs from the guest curator that are played i...

As a person who never wants the summer to end, I can't say that September is one of my favorite months. It's the usual routine: back to work, back to school, back to life, back to reality. And for me, it's back to BSOTS on the podcast end of things. The broadcast side of my life has b...
I could list a dozen reasons as to why I haven't done this earlier, but none of them would be good ones. For any one who ever wondered what on earth has been keeping me from creating new podcast episodes, the live broadcasts for Bondfire Radio every other Friday certainly have something to do with it. With that being the case, I figured that I really ought to bring the BSOTS on Bondfire broadcast experience to the podcast fee...

Despite the fact that I'm typing this on the last day of January, I'm still saying "Happy New Year" to you all. Feel free to hate on me if I'm still saying it come Easter Sunday, but as for right now, 2016 is still young.
Normally, Radio BSOTS is all about the music, a platform where I get all geeked out about artists and songs and I invite you to geek out with me. And then there's this little thing called BSOTS GONE (buck)WILD, an all-too-rare occurrence where the gloves come off and you learn about me alongside the music (for better or worse).
Because sometimes you just need some sun-drenched music in your life for motivation. Sending this mix out to all whom the show title applies. Camp Lo-Fi's getting some broadcast love right now, but rest assured...the podcast ain't goin' NOWHERE. Trust.
This episode's track listing:
1. Chief & Deheb - "These Are The Songs" (2015)
2. FilosofischeStilte - "Lost (Sam a la Bamalot Remix)" (2015)
This show is about a week past the date that I originally wanted it to be released online. Time challenges and a sluggish computer made things more difficult than they needed to be, but it's here.
A few corrections, if I may. First off, "Soon Come Soon" by Young Fathers is a standalone single and is not a part of any of their albums. Second, the news regarding Netlabel Day will sound dated at this point, as that even...
It's been three and a half months since the last BSOTS episode. During that time, this show has been making itself known as a radio broadcast. In all honesty, the broadcast has taken top priority, but the podcast has not been forgotten about. With this episode, I celebrate a return to home base and get back to the standard practice of music appreciation.
Thanks for checking out this episode and for hanging in there with me....
