The show explores a wide range of sounds and is set up with a classic vinyl "A Side / B Side" philosophy. The two-hour A-Side is more low-key, while the "flip side" covers a more adventurous range of sounds during the later hours.
The Turnstyles mix spans multiple eras, styles and artists. For example, you'll hear Folk (Gillian Welch, Phil Cook), Rock (M. Ward, Courtney Barnett), Reggae (Holly Cook, Lee "Scratch" Perry), Latin (Bomba Estereo, Tom Zé), Jazz (Nina Simone, Jeff Parker), Afrobeat (Miriam Makeba, Fela Kuti), Electronic (Suzanne Ciani, Boards of Canada), Modern Composition (Mary Lattimore, Aksak Maboul), and (much, much) more. Host Joel Davis provides context and insight for listeners navigating this journey of musical discovery. We welcome your feedback.
