Balearic Breakfast | Episode 29 | On springtime's wings...

Updated: Nov 2, 2023

Worldwide FM broadcast the 29th episode of Balearic Breakfast on March 23rd 2021.

 

Introduction. – For this new, and back then 29th, episode of Balearic Breakfast, Colleen suggested that we celebrate Spring. She wrote on her socials when posting the request line picture: "Good morning and Happy Spring Equinox! The request line is open for Tuesday's Balearic Breakfast and let's give springtime some love. We played Spring Affair on the show already but I know you can stretch your imagination." Guided by this very "natural" idea, the Balearic Breakfast responded with great requests and, as always, the final show embodied the Balearic Vibe absolutely, on every level. Both the mixes crafted by Colleen and the requested songs helped in creating a 2-hour show that flew by like a dream...

 

About this show. – When listening, you should be able to feel, in every song played during this show, that light Balearic wind, seeing yourself flying on a microlight plane! It's a very lightweight show, an "easy listening" Balearic trip for sure (Bebel Gilberto's "Tanto Tempo" track embodies this show so well)!

This show also includes one of the most joyful tracks ever requested (by yours truly ha!) during Balearic Breakfast "Sing to Me Mama" by the French singer, radio and TV presenter, Karen Cheryl! A track every disco lover should know by heart :-) I remember sending Colleen the vinyl because she played, on a previous show, a track that used Karen Cheryl's Backing track ("Pantera" by Jutro Moundo), and since I love that song so much I just could not refrain from sending that 45 maxi rpm to my beloved DJ (plus the lyrics do evoque springtime, ha!). That's the magic of Balearic Breakfast!
