Balearic Breakfast | Episode 112 | New Beginnings...

Updated: Feb 16

Colleen 'Cosmo' Murphy broadcast the 136th episode of Balearic Breakfast on her Mixcloud and Twitch TV socials on November 8th 2022.

 

About this episode. – Good morning! After a week’s break I feel rested and ready for the next era of Balearic Breakfast. I’ll be streaming on my Mixcloud Live and Twitch TV this coming Tuesday from 10 am to 12 noon GMT and then the show will be archived on my Mixcloud. Go on - tell me what you would like to hear 🍁🎶

Did you notice the slight change in the post's presentation line, going from "Worldwide FM broadcast..." to "Colleen 'Cosmo' Murphy broadcast..."? Well, times were changing since Worldwidefm had to reduce its activity. Still, there was no way for the Family to leave the Balearic Breakfast ship nor to wave goodbye to its Musical and oh-so-courageous Captain...

So, when Colleen greeted us with a new request line offering to follow her in a new musical era of our beloved show, we answered all as one, making requests that showcased how we all felt about this fresh start. All I can say is that this 112th episode of Balearic Breakfast holds both hope and sadness in its musical soul, a "questioning sadness" (John Martyn – Bless the Weather), I would say, one that asks about what's ahead without entirely accepting its nature (Massive Attack – Weather Storm; Rhetta Hughes – Throwing It All Away)... There is a sense of discovery in that 112th episode (Cornelius – Tone Twilight Zone; Labi Siffre – Watch Me; Primal Scream – Higher than the Sun (The Orb Mix); John Lee & Gerry Bown – Celebration); the music has a somewhat "unexpected" nature (Gabriels – To the Moon and Back; Chez Damier – Close; Xavier – Love is on the One), and it is often slightly "mysterious" too (Quantic – The 5th Exotic).

I love diving deep into the older shows; since I don't remember what was going on back then on the chat, I always try to find the hidden message from each of the shows and I thus consider them as real "albums", giving them several listens (up to 4/5), really taking the time to find the "right feeling" and to be sure I don't write too much stupid stuff ^^

All in all, It is one of these episodes that I absolutely love listening to again and again; it has depth, and it quickly became, rightfully, very successful!

Wow - my first Balearic Breakfast stream/upload post Worldwide FM is now number one in the Mixcloud Balearic charts! Thanks to all of you who helped make this happen - I really appreciate your support. See you tomorrow (Tuesday) from 10am to 12 noon GMT on my Mixcloud Live for the next weekly helping of Balearic Breakfast.

Listen back to the 112th episode of Balearic Breakfast:

The new era of Balearic Breakfast has begun! This morning we streamed on my Mixcloud Live and Twitch TV from 10 am to 12 noon and I would like to thank everyone who joined us - it was quite the turnout! And thanks for your requests, too. The show is now archived with a playlist on my Mixcloud.

 

The Wow Effect. – The feeling of "strangeness" and "expectation" can be easily heard in the first part of the show, where we discovered real new gems like Gabriel's "To the Moon and Back". This track is not your ordinary Jazz beauty...

Other tracks that wowed the Family included the absolutely beautiful Rhetta Hughes' "Throwing It All Away", which has that light sadness mixed with the anticipation of a new start!
