You'll hear everything from power pop to rock, soul to ska, acid jazz to lounge, and whatever falls in between. One of the things which has impressed me most in life was the mod movement in England, which was an incredible, youthful thing." -- Pete Townshend, The Who, 1968 Catalogued here are the sights and sounds of mod as I understand it. Much will be familiar to other mods. I realize many narrow-minded people, mods and others, will look at much of this and dismiss it as not truly "mod." So be it. However you view it, I hope you enjoy exploring these sights and sounds as much as I did putting them together.

    Modcast #562: Get Hip II

    I'm going under the knife again for another hip replacement. If I can't dance for a while so be it, but I can listen and so can you. Once I'm on the road to recovery I know my ears will be hungry for new tunes, and so will yours. So, I've got sweet and savory for you this week. Nothing too salty, and of course nothing bitter. From sixties influenced, tweeish folk pop to frothy pulse pounding power pop, its a smorgasbord for your ears. As always find a complete track list, a bonus third set of songs, and all the important links to all the important stuff over on the modcast homepage at http://www.mistersuave.com/2024/06/modcast-562-get-hip-ii.html.And keep up with me between modcasts:X FacebookInstagramSpotifyiHeart RadioSubscribe with iTunesWhat is Mod?

    Modcast #561: Playing Hooky

    Modcast #561: Playing Hooky

    Cast your mind back to '84 and remember when you used to play hooky from school on a sunny day. If you were like me you had to have some music along for the ride. I liked to concoct my own mix tapes with whatever was musically catching my ear's fancy at the time. Recently I came across notes I'd made with track listings for old mix tapes and this one jumped out to me, and I thought hey why not remix that one for a modcast. And here it is. As always find a complete track list, a bonus third set of songs, and all the important links to all the important stuff over on the modcast homepage at http://www.mistersuave.com/2024/05/modcast-561-playing-hooky.html.And keep up with me between modcasts:X FacebookInstagramSpotifyiHeart RadioSubscribe with iTunesWhat is Mod?

Always interesting - Great for new discoveries

I got horribly behind on my Mister Suave and decided recently ato try and catch up. I’ve basically been binging on episodes from 2017, 2018, and 2019. What a fun soundtrack to work by! Want an episode to try out first? Try this one: Blast Off # 434. I think I must have discovered 5 new-to-me bands on that episode alone. Some of my favorite episodes are his cocktail lounge editions and his holiday specials. I also love his iPod shuffle episodes and garage rock episodes. If you’re a snotty mod purist you will be disappointed. He has a more expanded palette than that. But no matter what he plays, it’s almost always interesting, funny or just wow. Enjoy.

mr. suave's mod mod world

This podcast covers so much great music that it never disappoints ! Rob Suave does his homework and if you listen, you are going to learn things about the music you love.

Mr. Suave is the man

Been listening for over 10 years and I’m not exaggerating when I say mos of my new music exposure originates from this show or lines of exploration that this show starts me on. Thanks!!
