Balearic Breakfast | Episode 126 | Walk in the springtime

Updated: Apr 30, 2023

Colleen 'Cosmo' Murphy broadcast the 126th episode of Balearic Breakfast on her Mixcloud and Twitch TV socials on March 21st 2023.

And Spring arose on the garden fair, Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere; And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.
Percy Bysshe Shelley

When Colleen posted the request line on her socials on Saturday, the 18th of March, we already knew that the forthcoming show was going to be a lovely one. Mind you! We were going to welcome Spring and celebrate Mother's day (in England, it fell on Sunday, 19th March, I could not, btw, resist sharing Colleen's picture with her daughter, Ariana !).

Good morning! The flowers are blooming, especially these lovely daffodils, and spring can be felt teasing us from behind the corner. And tomorrow it’s Mothers Day here in the UK so a big round of applause to all the mums 👏👏👏
Now what is it you would like to hear this Tuesday on Balearic Breakfast? Please keep all requests in the comment and once again I look forward to your discoveries!
You can catch up on past shows on my Mixcloud - chrck@out the playlist feature and please follow whilst you’re over there.
Enjoy your weekend! (Colleen, Inst. , 18/03/2023)

So, of course, our requests were influenced by these two events! Still, we all were absolutely on point! The Balearic Breakfast Family requested soulful songs, and Colleen gave these musical selections an aura that would be hard to top. One of the best examples can be found in Thanos Katronis' request: The Chimes' "I still haven't found what I'm looking for". We all loved that request and told it to Thanos when he joined the chat later during the show. He was warmly welcomed and was thrilled by such a joyful balearic accolade! These are truly magical moments that we all keep in our hearts long after a show has ended... Balearic Breakfast is a musical and human vibe; you have to come and join us on Mixcloud's tchat to feel the love flow!

When listening to this (already !!) 126th edition of Balearic Breakfast, you can hear how laid-back it is and how relaxed and "open" the selections are. Colleen's mixing skills allowed this feeling of smoothness to come up front and to shine; no matter which song she played in the course of the two-hour musical trip, we all just felt like we were protected in a world of tender happiness (and we all felt the same way towards this show on the chat ^^) I dare say that "Spring's mother love" was in the air (laughs)!

We naturally paid tribute to the late Bobby Caldwell that passed away on March, 14th and whose song, "What you won't do for love" has been played during Balearic Breakfast some time ago.

This very show also made me realise how much the request line "changed" during the last few shows: that moment, when we were all requesting songs, was also a moment that allowed us to share songs with our balearican friends! The sense of Community became much stronger in the request line lately; we all felt it!

Yes, it feels like Balearic Breakfast is the gift that keeps on giving...
