In celebration of the 12-year anniversary of Making Time, I’ve compiled a 24-hour playlist of some of my favorite futuristic sounds, most of which I’ve played on WXPN’s Making Time RADio show.

See you on the other side.

All your everything are belong to ‘Making Time’.



Why do you want to climb an iceberg? Because it’s there, of course
On a Wednesday afternoon in St. John’s, N.L., Justin Emberley saw a 45-metre iceberg floating less than 100 feet from shore in Quidi Vidi Harbour. He called up his friend, Kevin Le Morzadec, a French citizen doing his Ph.D. on the subject of glacier modeling in Newfoundland, and said, “Let’s climb it.” And climb it they did. They put on their wetsuits and life vests, threw their ice picks and clamp-ons in their bags, jumped in the frigid ocean and swam to the iceberg. The National Post’s Kristin Annable spoke Thursday to Mr. Le Morzadec, as Mr. Emberley listened nearby. (Photos: Jerry Curtis)



Remembering Larry Levan, ‘The Jimi Hendrix Of Dance Music’  Via 

The audio link above is a radio story for All Things Considered about the late Larry Levan, the producer and DJ whose residency at New York’s Paradise Garage between 1977 and 1987 remains the most storied in clubland. For the story, I spoke with music writer Will Hermes, whose recently published Love Goes To Buildings On Fire deals with part of that period in New York City’s history, and a pair of DJs who were profoundly influenced by Levan.
