Such a fun morning welcoming Noah Kaufmann into the studio to give us a peek into the world of New 80s Synth Pop (and related synthesizer genres) he meticulously brings to us on Synthwaves here at KFAI. You've heard on PWB some of the newer local bands which feature synth prominently such as Phantom Tails, Plastic Believers and Ghost in the Water. The renewed interest in these electronic sounds goes beyond the hooks and atmospherics created in these bands' compositions--it hits the dance floor through producer-artists such as Discoballistic and Miami Nights 1984--some of the people from around the world Noah has brought together through his show. Before Noah joined us at 10:30 we heard new music from Gap Dream and Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas. We wrapped the show with some new music from Black Diet just before the Roe Family Radio Round-Up. We began with something beautiful from Tabu Ley Rochereau, rest in peace. Thanks for listening!
