White Walls #33: Late Summer

Hello everyone,

It is a beautifully cool August day here in New England, and I am ready for autumn! I have a fun new show for you this week, with great songs I've been listening to all summer. Most of these bands are new to me, like 10 String Symphony, The Western Den, and The Small Glories. As usual, I have included a mix of bluegrass, folk, and singer-songwriter tunes.

Be sure to check out all the other great shows on SpiritPlants Radio this weekend! I hope you enjoy the rest of summer, and I'll be back with another show when it cools down even more!

Take care,
DJ Blue

White Walls #32: Springtime Show

Hello everyone,

I hope you're doing well, and that spring has been good to you so far! It has been a cool and rainy one here in New England, but I like it! And it makes the sunny days all the more delightful - which is what I would call this week's show! This time, I'm playing some new favorites that I discovered over the past few months. I have lots of songs from new-to-me bands/artists like the Small Glories and Tyler Childers right alongside new-to-me songs from old favorites like Jonatha Brooke, Anna Nalick, and Sara Barreiles.

It's a good mix, and I hope you'll enjoy it! I think it'll fit right in with all the other great shows on SpiritPlants Radio this weekend. Go check them out!

I'll be back in early summer with another show! Enjoy spring!

Take care,
DJ Blue

White Walls #31: The Winter Show!

Hi everyone,

Happy solstice! It's been unseasonably warm here in New England the past few days, but that means that SpiritPlants Radio's Annual Winter Weekend is needed even more to help get us in the spirit of the season! On this week's show, I'm playing many of my favorite winter and holiday songs (like I do every year), along with a few new ones that I've never played. You'll hear songs by Sufjan Stevens, Sarah McLachlan, Mindy Smith, Reba McEntire, and more!

This year, I'm grateful once again to SpiritPlants Radio for giving me the opportunity to share some of my favorite songs with people around the world! Be sure to check out all the seasonal shows on the schedule this week! It's always a fun time!

Whether you're celebrating holidays or just the festive time of year, I'm sending warm wishes your way! Long days and pleasant nights!

Take care,

White Walls #30: 8th Anniversary Show!

Hello everyone,


Happy Thanksgiving weekend, friends! I'm really excited to tell you about my show this week. Not only is it my 30th show, but it's my 8th anniversary on SpiritPlants Radio! And on top of all that, it's SpiritPlants Radio's 15th anniversary weekend!

For this anniversary show, I tried to include (as always) some new finds, like Dead Horses and Front Country, and some old favorites, like the Crane Wives and Florence and the Machine. I think there's a nice mix of fiddle-y bluegrass, with some great singer-songwriter vibes mixed in. I think you'll enjoy it!

I hope you all had a nice holiday leading into this weekend. What a great time to give thanks for all the hard work that goes into running such a great station, while listening to and enjoying the great shows that are planned! Head on over to SpiritPlants Radio to see the full schedule.

I'll be back soon with my annual winter show - stay warm til then!

Take care,
DJ Blue

White Walls #29 - Summer Living

Hi everyone,

I hope you are enjoying July! As a cold-weather lover, summer is usually rough. BUT this year has not been too bad here in New England (knock on wood). I'm excited to be back this week with a summer episode of White Walls. I discovered a new band recently, the Last Revel, and this show features several songs from their most recent album. I'm also really enjoying Florence + the Machine's new album, so you'll find a few songs from that on this episode too, along with all sorts of other fun stuff.

I hope you enjoy this episode! And don't forget to check out all the shows on SpiritPlants Radio - there's a great line-up this weekend.

Take care,
DJ Blue

White Walls #27: The Annual Winter Show

Hi everyone,

Happy December! We are enjoying our first snowfall of the year here in New England, so it's the perfect weekend for SpiritPlants Radio's Winter Weekend! On this week's show, I'm playing many of my favorite winter songs (which I play every year), along with a few new ones that I've never played. You'll hear songs by Sufjan Stevens, Sarah McLachlan, Mindy Smith, Brandi Carlile, and others.

Decembers have been a little frustrating and depressing for me the past few years, but this year, I'm hopeful that being in a new job will mean less stress. In that spirit, I'm trying to find new and better ways to appreciate the people and goings-on around me. So I'll take this opportunity to say thank you, SpiritPlants Radio, for giving me the opportunity to share some of my favorite songs with people around the world! Be sure to check out all the seasonal shows on the schedule this week!

Whether you celebrate any holidays this month, or just the season and new year, I hope it's a peaceful and joyful time for you! Long days and pleasant nights!

Take care,
DJ Blue
