So, were you expecting 1910? Well the bad news is that it’s going to be another month until that’s ready. The good news is that I have finally finished this mix for 2017. It has been a bit of a monster, or a menace, is 45 minutes over my supposed maximum running time of two hours, and contains around 150 sound samples, including the 76 tracks listed below.

How was 2017? It seems like a year of readjustment after the shocks of 2016. There is a lot going on in here, but I didn’t find that a single thread emerged this time. In a decade or so, when I get around to this year again, some of this will still seem worthwhile, some probably will not, we will just have to see.

One perhaps important thing also to note – there is a lot of rude language in this mix, and I mean a lot. I’m working on a family-friendly version, which should be out in a week or two.

The start of 2019 sees some changes at Centuries of Sound. The monthly mix will stay as it is, free to download, and without any advertisements, but there will be a variety of rewards available for anyone signing up to our Patreon. The page is up already, the rewards will start to become available in the next month. Your support can get me some half-decent microphones, proper hosting, and, most importantly, justify to my family the amount of time I spend making this thing. Our page is here.

Boxing Day Special Review of 2018

winter

Day: Wednesday 26th December 2018
Time: 9pm GMT
Place: 105fm in Cambridge, on Digital Radio, Smart TVs and radio apps, or online at https://cambridge105.co.uk/radioplayer/

In this special festive episode of Centuries of Sound, James and Sean take a break from the era of wax cylinders and marching bands to review some of the (perhaps) more sophisticated sounds of 2018, and discover some surprising parallels between the gilded age and today.

2016 preview mix

2016 - Walking_reflection

Around this time every year, I’ll post a preview mix. This will be out of the usual monthly cycle, and put up as a placeholder while the year is still warm. When I eventually get round to these years there will be a more considered mix posted in its place.

2016 was, by all accounts, a bit of a rough year. In terms of music, though, it will probably be better-remembered.
