November 2019 Mixclouder of the Month: Signal To Noise

Terrestrial college and indie stations seem going off the air for good at a clip faster than ever. It also seems that just as many of them are blanding out their formats to automated and syndicated programming to appease squares. Finding ones out there that still have real live humans who come in share their music taste and knowledge with a listening audience are great fun.


The Signal To Noise program one of those "great fun" kinds of things I am talking about. On Sunday nights from 11pm til 2am on Teaneck, NJ's 89.1 WFDU FM, Al C presents loud, snotty indie guitar rock, in-studio interviews, and the occasional live performance.

October 2019 Mixclouder of the Month: Raw Journey Paris

Each week deserves a playlist. That's a manta of our Mixclouder of the Month, Raw Journey Paris. And, it's exactly what they do to treat the ears with every Sunday


Each week the show administers the latest in the realm of weird, loud, distorted, destroyed and trippy factions of not only modern rock-n-roll but other beyond sounds from around the world in quick to digest half-hour doses.

Not only that, they capture some nice shots of the Paris live music scene too.

September 2019 Mixclouder of the Month: The Institute of Spectra-Sonic Sound

Our first two Mixclouders of the month dealt in a louder and rowdier side of music. This month, it's something a bit more cerebral.


Based out of Euguene, Oregon and airing weekly on KEPW 97.3 FM, David Warmbier's Institute of Spectra-Sonic Sound is a journey into experimental sounds guaranteed to vibrate, chill and, at times, disturb the musical lobes of your mind.

August 2019 Mixclouder Of The Month: Cat Nouveau

Though the Cat Nouveau show originates out of Portugal, he scours the planet for the rudest, wildest and sickest rock-n-roll sounds.



A violently kaleidoscopic whirl of new punk rock and the latest garage rock from all over the world is what's served up. What's that weird flavor of the colors you're tasting? Well, it's either blood or cyanide!

Smashin' Podsistors 53: Head's In A Haze


Like a heatwave. Amid the one we had the past week, one way to keep cool was to find a big shade tree to sit under and put together a fake radio show. Or, at least, portions of one.

July 2019 Mixclouder of the Month: The Village Subway

Starting a new thing here on Smashin' Transistors where we spotlight on a show on Mixcloud that we dig a lot. If you are not familiar with Mixcloud it's an online music streaming service that allows for the listening and distribution of radio shows, DJ mixes and podcasts. There are tons of people producing content and uploading it daily on to the site. Actual humans putting sets of music together instead of computerized systems or algorithms. What a concept, right?

For our first voyage into doing this, we shine a light on the Village Subway.


Hosted by David Schwentker, the Village Subway originates live on Monday nights from 8-9pm on Raleigh, North Carolina's online station littleraleighradio.org.

Encompassing a vast variety of loud, wild and twitchy sounds, Dave describes his musical selections as Underground Rock. There hasn't been an episode of the show yet where I haven't gotten turned on to something really good that I haven't heard before.

Smashin' Podsistors 51: A Chattahoochee Reference


Though I like to think I am reasonably well-read, sometimes my brain will go off in some direction where I think something that is probably a well-worn colloquialism (or a line from a David Lynch film) is actually just a lyric from some cheesy pop country song of the 1990s.
