That's a Wrap

5 years, 100+ shows and over 10,000 downloads later, the time has come to say goodbye. While I still enjoy putting these shows together when time permits, it's just gotten to a point where I have too many other things going right now to consistently drop them with a level of quality y'all deserve. I mean it sincerely when I say I'm humbled and appreciative of all the support we've received since we started back in 2009. The good news is my podcasting partner Silky1 will be starting his own solo podcast very soon. Check back here later in the summer for the link. Thanks again ~OP

Reunion Radio 02-17-2014

R&B, Funk, Soul, Electro, Nu-Disco.. this one has a little bit of everything. It's been a minute since I dropped one of these so I mainly focused on newer music but we have a couple older classics thrown in the mix for good measure. We kick things off with a Nu-Disco/R&B/Funk mix that includes the latest from Jennifer Hudson along with classics from The Bar-Kays, Madonna & Timberlake. No Valentine's Day show this year but we jump into a more soulful set with some new Teedra Moses, a Pharrell production for UK R&B singer Daley and the return of the Toni Braxton & Babyface power duo. After which we get into another mix set, this one focusing on modern funk acts like Dam-Funk & Reggie B.. then wrap it all up with a new one from Amp Fiddler Featuring Raphael Saadiq & the full version of Michael Jackson's unreleased gem "A Place with No Name". As always right click the "download" link and "Save As" to the location of your choice. Thanks for being patient and supporting. Full track list in comments section.

Hood Classics Vol IV (100th Reunion Radio Podcast)

OK here we go, the 4th edition of what's become one of our more popular shows.. and for me personally the most fun to put together. For those new to the Hood Classic shows I'm basically dropping records and mixes house party & mix tape style from back in the 80's. I've been asked to try and keep these short enough to fit on CD (under 70 mins) but I got to feelin' it and started to run long on this one.. excuse the quick bumper and fade at the end but I was trying to keep the file small enough to fit. Hope it works for those wishing to burn. This one is real mix (or blend if you will) heavy and I think the best of the series so far. I also wanted this one to be special because it marks the 100th Reunion Radio Podcast.. time flies. Thanks to everyone for their support over the years and an extra big thanks to my podcasting partner Silky1 for coming in some years back and helping to take the load off getting these things out. Any way enjoy the show and if you haven't already, check out the previous 3 chapters of Hood Classics.. Just use the search box in the upper left hand corner if interested in downloading any of those. Full track list for this edition is posted in comments section. Peace ~ OP

Reunion Radio Podcast 10-23-2013

We jump back in with one of our standard shows bringing together different styles and eras.. although with the glut of good new music the last few months we ended up heavy on 2013 releases. I'm dropping two tracks each, from albums I think are among the best of the year so far, with the Foreign Exchange & the new one by the legendary Earth Wind & Fire. Also in here are new joints from Reggie B (who's album is also outstanding), Joe, Pharrell Williams & the return of TLC with a new song off their latest best of collection "20". As usual I dip in & out of the mix, run through some old school as well as some more recent classics, and just basically end up going where the music takes me. I'll get the full track list up in the comments section. 

Enjoy ~ OP
