NTS SHOWS – MARS 2020 W/ PAM & HOUTI

The virus finally hits Europe, and we're all in quarantine now. My mind wanders and very predictively meets memories of Alain Resnais and Chris Marker. La Jetée, of course,  but not Hiroshima Mon Amour - La Vie est Un Roman instead, a weird film in Resnais's work, not absolutely exempt from flaws but revolving around…Lire la suite NTS SHOWS – MARS 2020 W/ PAM & HOUTI

NTS SHOWS – JANUARY 2020 W/ PAM & CÉLINE GILLAIN: MONEY, MONEY, MONEY_MIX

The longest hiatus in the history of this series is over !

NTS SHOWS – NOVEMBER 2019 W/ PAM & BEN DROWNED

NTS SHOWS – OCTOBER 2018 W/ PAM

Determinedly stepping into my favourite season of the year (alongside Summer and Spring) with OYT's latest show on NTS : beginning with Alan Albert Owen's "neo classical" masterpiece Following The Light before playing some personal heart warming classics by Lucio Battisti or Mushi & Lakansyel.

NTS SHOWS – SEPTEMBER 2018 W/ PAM & Satoshi

September : end of Summer, beginning of Autumn... I think this show operates that Season switch with some proper Balearic Chansons by the likes of Laurent Voulzy or the song that inspired Joe Dassin's L'Été Indien (Indian Summer) turning into the sad melodies of Günther Beckers or O Yuki Conjugate... TRACKLIST : WALLY BADAROU -Gabriel's…Lire la suite NTS SHOWS – SEPTEMBER 2018 W/ PAM & Satoshi
