Balearic Breakfast | Episode 119 | Under the Shining Moon

Updated: May 14, 2023

Colleen 'Cosmo' Murphy broadcast the 119th episode of Balearic Breakfast on her Mixcloud and Twitch TV socials on January 24th 2023.

The Balearic Breakfast Family’s magic operated again when Colleen asked us to pick up songs celebrating our Astral Friend (The Moon) regarding the Lunar New Year festivities. Lunar New Year, which began on Jan. 22, is observed widely throughout East Asia and marks the beginning of spring and the start of a new lunar cycle celebrated over the course of 16 days.

“The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human. Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.”
Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me

So, on the 21st of January, we all gathered together and sent our requests to Colleen. The songs posted on her socials were all so good we could have had a 4 or 5 hours show! As always, Colleen chose the final tracks carefully and created a 2 hours show that allowed the listener to calmly leave the planet and meet its shiny but nocturnal friend...
