White Walls #39: The Annual Winter Show!

Hello everyone,

I hope you and yours are staying safe in these ongoing days of the pandemic. It has been gray and rainy here in New England, but we are staying safe and staying home, so we are trying to make the season bright, warm, and cozy. I'm really happy to be back this week with my annual winter show! Like the past few years, I'm playing lots of my favorite seasonal songs, including Sarah McLachlan, Sufjan Stevens, Dolly Parton, John Denver, and Reba McEntire. These songs are all dear to me, and I hope they help to put you in the holiday spirit this year. 

There are lots of other shows over on SpiritPlants Radio this "Season's Greetings Weekend," so be sure to check out the whole schedule! As always, it's a good one!

Here's to a brighter, better, and healthier 2021! 

Take care,
DJ Blue

White Walls #38: Cozy Autumn Show

Hello everyone,

I'm really happy to bring you this week's White Walls show - creating it was a wonderful way to get away from the ongoing pandemic and the surging cases everywhere. Autumn is my favorite season and it's been an especially vibrant and beautiful one here in New England, so my goal with this week's show was to bring you some cozy music to curl up with, maybe under a blanket or by a fire. It features several songs by a new favorite of mine, the Way Down Wanderers, along with great music from The Chicks, Mipso, and Small Glories, and many more! 

This weekend is a special one on SpiritPlants Radio - it's the 17th Anniversary Weekend! There are a lot of great shows this celebratory weekend, so I hope you go check them out! And congratulations to everyone who has been involved in this great labor of love for so long - good job!!

As this pandemic rages on around us, I hope all of you and your loved ones are staying safe. Here's to a safe Thanksgiving this year, so that we're all around to enjoy it together next year. 

Take care,
DJ Blue

White Walls #37: Another Summer Show

Hi there,

It is officially summertime here, and I'm really excited to tell you about the newest White Walls! This week's show features brand new songs from some favorite artists, like The Lowest Pair, Wild Rivers, and Lee Henke, plus more great music from The Dead Tongues, The Western Den, and The Small Glories. I was going for a slow-take-it-easy-in-the-summertime feel - I hope you enjoy it!

It's Long Live Rock! Weekend on SpiritPlants Radio, and I know there are some great classic concerts playing. Check it out!

I'll be back again soon with another show. In the meantime, I hope you are staying safe and enjoying the summer!

Take care,

White Walls #36: The Pandemic Show

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all safe and hunkered down in these strange times of the pandemic. What better time to listen to some new music? I'm excited to share my new show with you, featuring lots of sweet and some melancholy music that seems to fit this time well. New (to me) artists like Caamp, Quiet Arrows, and Ordinary Elephant join favorites like Mandolin Orange and Dead Horses.

It's springtime here in New England, and being outside (safely distanced, of course) is good for us all. I hope you enjoy this new show, and I hope that you and your family are safe and healthy.

Take care,
DJ Blue

White Walls #34: Autumn and Anniversary!

Hello everyone,

It has been a beautiful autumn here in New England - beautiful and vibrant colors on the leaves, cool and crisp air every morning. It is the perfect time to listen to some great music, and I really think this episode has a lot. Between a few new bands like the Hush Kids, Mile Twelve, and Honeysuckle, and bands that I've played before like Tow'rs, the Wild Reeds, and the Native Sibling, I hope you'll find something you like!

Late November means that it is the 16th Anniversary Weekend on SpiritPlants Radio, so be sure to check out all the great content that is featured this week! I'm so happy that I've been doing a show there for 9 years!

See you soon - I'm already looking forward to my annual holiday show in December!

Take care,

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,
