Balearic Breakfast | Episode 24 | Some Balearic Pancakes

Updated: Jul 26, 2023

Worldwide FM broadcast the 24th episode of Balearic Breakfast on February 16th 2021.

On February, 13th 2021, Colleen posted the request line on her socials and wrote: "Good morning world. Please send over your requests for this Tuesday's BB which falls on Mardi Gras and one of the wildest holidays of all... Pancake Day. Over to you my friends..." Through the hard times we were all experiencing, our dear Captain never lost the Balearic Breakfast ship's direction. She was holding the helm firmly, leading us through the maze of the times... This show is a perfect example of that. If my memory serves me well, it was one of the very first themed shows of the series, and what better way to start than with some Pancakes turning on your turntables? (laughs)! It was also one of the first Balearic Breakfast shows celebrating The Loft's anniversary!

I love how the first tracks take us to Colleen's imaginary thanks, once again, to the Balearic Breakfast's family requests! It was such a joyful start to the show! This 24th episode of the series is another one that got me closer, and closer, and closer (gosh, can I be closer than that ?!) to Colleen! I mean, how irresistible can a show be when you have songs like "Somewhere Down the Crazy River" and "Brother John", "Hand Clapping Son" and "Smoke My Peace Pipe" mixed together? Can't you see the Pancakes on the frying pan with me trying to sneak one out right to my tummy (laughs)! Gosh, sometimes, being a Lioncub is really hard, I can tell you!

Also, it's great hearing Colleen tell us the story behind Mardis Gras as it is celebrated in the States; she has such a way of telling stories! You always learn something while listening to this show... Though not all the tracks were related to Mardis Gras, this episode got to be amongst the most joyful of the series and back then we needed that for sure (on the "Covid-19" front, things were positively evolving as the number of global new cases reported kept on falling, with "only" 2.7 million new cases (-16% compared to the previous week). The number of new deaths reported also fell, with 81,000 new deaths reported, a 10% decline as compared to the previous week).

A lot of countries worldwide were still on lockdown, so though things seemed to be slightly getting better, we were still challenged mentally and Balearic Breakfast was our best time of the week to take a Fresh and Positive breeze of Air (plus we were to have a Cosmodelica House Party on February, 18th 2021, so, we were all pretty excited)!
