12) "The Mid-Morning Recording" The Orb-'The Orb's Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld'
This is one of the very few MMR albums we've now played more than once. I noticed that The Orb's first album was celebrating a milestone 30th anniversary this past Friday, April 2nd. As, I played this album over 20 years ago now as the "23rd" MMR album in January of 2001, it has been a good while since it was played on the KRTU airwaves. Since I wanted to listen to it to celebrate the milestone, I might as well play it for you listeners. So for the broadcast, Orly took the week off, and I picked out a short segment of tracks, and then played one of the greatest debut albums of all time. The DJ / producer album that helped to define Ambient-House. Certainly one of the most influential albums of my life, and it was wonderful to share it with listeners on this early morning of Saturday April 3rd, my 49th birthday. This FM broadcast is dedicated to Alex Paterson and all his amazing collaborators on the album. That list of talent is long. A shout out to anyone who has never heard it before, and stumbled across it on the radio dial. Maybe you were enjoying your favorite libation. Maybe you were sent to the centre of the Ultraworld. Has it been 30 years already? - "I've been waiting for music like this all my life." - Michael - MFL
13) James-"Sayonara" From the album 'Wah-Wah'.
