Miss Lena Horne Narrates Featurette for U.N. Radio, by United Nations Photos on Flickr

This morning, news came down the wire that the hugely talented and beautiful Lena Horne passed away over the weekend at the age of 92. As an admirer of her work, this naturally meant that I couldn’t resist adding in one of her public domain recordings for this week’s show. When you couple that with having spent a good chunk of this last week looking for film noir-ish music for potential use in the production of Dead Man’s Cell Phone that I’m ASMing, you’ll understand why this week’s show leans towards the jazz/noir/swing side of the house. That said, there are still off-roads into darkwave, chaotically intriguing electrojazz, and indie/acoustic rock too. Man cannot live on bread alone, as they say.

As always, full show notes including a track listing and links to the artists/sources are after the break!

[candy hearts for the Radioactive State music podcast Valentine Show]

Because I’m sappy and sentimental, this episode is chock full of love just in time for Valentine’s Day. This episode skews more towards alternative rock, although there’s a bit of jazz, blues, and even a bittersweet acoustic track in the mix.

I did warn you I listen to just about everything. 😉

I’m also playing with the format a bit – less talking, more music! As always, feedback is welcomed, so feel free to drop a comment, or drop me an email to krystalle [at] radioactivestate [dot] com.

Enjoy!
