Episode #227: The Man in the Mack Said We Had to Go Back, So We Did

Saturday, May 27th, 2017

A holiday weekend without Full Duplex Radio is not something that we could allow so we made sure there would be a new episode out there. And take it from us, it’s right out there. Antiquarian statistics for the week: the oldest music is from 1956, the newest is from 2017. That alone proves our range and determination. Rain or shine, we’re usually there for you. Please give this one a try.

Episode #226: It’s 2017. Do You Know Where Your Children Are?

Saturday, May 20th, 2017

We counted, and it seems that half the music on this week’s program was recorded or written in the 1960s. Nothing earlier than about 1965. Sometimes it just turns out that way. But all the rest of it is newer. We fully expect that you’ll like it all. We hope so, but remember that there are no refunds. Have at it. Download away.

Episode #225: If Not for the Rain We Would Be Out There Having Fun

Sunday, May 14th, 2017

It’s our Mother’s Day episode but there’s very little that’s motherly about it. It’s the same kind of thing that all you children and mothers have come to expect from us: TV and movie music, too many versions of the same song, music as fresh as yesterday and older than time itself, ballads, rap, marimbas, and the usual bits and bobs, as our British friends say. Plus "more". We’re only a little late so we hope you’re still there to download and listen. It’s worth your time. "In our opinion."
