Episode Zero


Over 5 years ago, we had an idea for what we wanted our Radio Show to feel like. We didn't have a name for it, and we never envisioned it lasting this long...Over 270 episodes later, it's grown it into something different while still maintaining a strong connection to the original aesthetic and vision, while (almost) never repeating any songs along the way. We've gotten emails and artwork from people all over the world; really beautiful personal messages from people who tell us how the use the show, that it has become a soundtrack for different parts of their lives (bike riding through Stockholm at night, building a house with family in the Netherlands, dancing around the campfire in Australia, working, travelling, cooking, making art, making love, and so on). Knowing how the show has touched people is a huge motivator for us to try to keep it fresh and interesting; and we feel a deep connection and responsibility to all of these people whom we have never met, maybe never will meet. 

As much as we are moving forward and focused on what's coming next, it's important to pause every once in a and explore the roots of something, how we got here. Here is the demo for Chances with Wolves, the mix we submitted to East Village Radio in 2008. Here is an eBay collection of some of the music played on the show.
