Gordon Gartrell Radio

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

Usually when I write a music post I link to a specific mix I like that people can download. I listen to a wide variety of music and I try to reflect that in my posts and the variety of mixes I link. Today I’m posting not to a specific mix but about a podcast that I enjoy. Lots and lots of great music is archived on here and new shows are consistently coming out. Rather than downloading a specific mix, if you subscribe to this podcast you’ll get new, fresh music to listen to and download indefinitely.

Gordon Gartrell Radio

Gordon Gartrell Radio is the semi-demi-quasi-almost bi-weekly radio show hosted by MC/singer Phonte (of Little Brother/Foreign Exchange) and DJ/music collector/tastemaker extraordinaire Brainchild.

DJ Brainchild provides a sophisticated mix of hip-hop, soul, R&B, house and downtempo, while Phonte waxes poetic about relationships, current events, and just about everything else in between. The radio show, as any Cosby Show aficionado can tell you, gets its name from a fictional designer taken from this episode. One of the best episodes of all time.

While I might not always agree with Phonte’s stance on politics and issues, he is usually clever and humorous with his commentary. DJ Brainchild consistently plays a good mix of new and old jams, from all sorts of music genres with a R&B/hip-hop lean. Each podcast is also tagged with the artists that are played, which makes looking up an artist that you’ve never heard before easy. I credit this podcast for introducing me to a slew of new artists that I can’t get enough of now, but have never heard anywhere else.
