Channel F - BONUS: NNR Channel 2: Season 1 & 2019 Beta - ALL MUSIC - COMPLETE (Music-Only)

November 15, 2021

Today’s “F-isode” is the complete collection of all music from season 1 of Nerd Noise Radio - Channel 2 (Sept 2020 - Sept 2021) ***PLUS***, the music from Hugues and I’s December 2019 Channel F “one-off” that would go on to retroactively become the template, and “unofficial ‘beta’” for Channel 2. Though much longer, and a bit more clunky and unpolished, it is otherwise identical in format and fundamentally similar in delivery to what would go on to become the later Channel 2 “official episodes”. 

 

Now, this collection is JUST the music from these episodes, with all the conversation between Hugues and I scrubbed. However, I will provide iTunes links to each of the full episodes (plus the full beta) so that you can listen to these tracks IN CONTEXT if you wish, and can hear everything we had to say about them.

 

Part of the reason I had included the tracks from the 2019 beta is to show where we’ve come from. Part of it is to show where we’re going. Part of it is simply because it’s full of really, really great music that you may have otherwise missed. And lastly, since starting with the “Best of 2020 / 2021” episodes in 2022, music from Channel F “F-isodes” will be eligible, unlike they were in 2020 for “Best of 2019”, I wanted to include them here now so that they’d finally be available to you or I for inclusion in our respective “best ofs”.

 

But the single biggest reason for my sharing these with you now, in November of 2021 is simply to hopefully build some excitement for and engagement with December’s “Best of Channel 2 - Season 1” episode, which Hugues and I will meet to produce, and will feature a grand total of 26 tracks, ***ALL OF WHICH*** pulled from today’s collection of 92 - two tracks per host per episode, plus one “wild card”  track pick per host. So, which 26 will we pull, and which 66 will we leave behind? And how well or poorly will our 26 align with the 26 that you, the listener, may have theoretically picked for yourself and/or predicted that we might pull?

 

In December, we’ll all find out together. And afterwards, you’ll have to be sure to reach out to us to let us know! In the meanwhile, here’s the source material we’ll be pulling from: first, the 70 tracks from “Season 1 proper”, plus the 22 from 2019 in our beta afterwards. I hope you’ll enjoy! Please get a hold of us on FB, or Twitter, or through e-mail at nerdnoiseradio@gmail.com with what your picks, and/or your guess of what our picks will be, and if we get them in time, we may even mention them, and engage with them during the episode! If you DO decide to play along, pick one “Hugues track”, one “St. John track”, and one wildcard, so we’re dealing with the same number of tracks (as well as what your guesses are for our picks).

 

Cheers!
