We want to expose you to bands and sounds you've never been introduced to, or may have only heard in passing somewhere it didn't even register. We will bring you tunes from languages we don't speak, countries we've never been to and try to expose to stuff that you may just have never heard.

    "If You're Doing It Right"

    "If You're Doing It Right"

    I took a bit of time off, just to sort of mentally recharge my batteries. It's been a s****y month, a s****y year, and generally this year can go f*****g die in a fire a thousand times over, but we gotta get through it.

    On the plus side, there's been some amazing new music released in the month or so (is that how long it was? Hell, I'm not even sure) since I released a new episode.

    A little over two hours, so enjoy.

    The War Is Still Going On

    We've been under quarantine for months now, so long I'm not even sure when the last time I hung out with a group of friends was. It feels like forever. At least we've still got tunes to keep us occupied...

Where the Mixtapes Have Gone

Cliff Hicks brings you music from around the world that you might never be exposed to otherwise. It's like back when you would make mixtapes and trade them with your friends - you always found a song/band or two that you weren't aware of that became a new favorite.

Start with episode #269 - "Not Forgotten Yet" to give you an opportunity to meet Cliff and learn about the whys and hows of the podcast (along with some excellent music). Then, go back as far as your podcatcher will take you and enjoy! (Or, keep up with the most recents - up to you - no judgement!)

Great for picking up new music

Tons of stuff I had never heard of before, but really great to have someone introducing me to stuff I might like

A blend of music and storytelling...

Like a DJ who doesn't care about countries or styles, Starlight Society is a blend of music and storytelling, walking you through music of the world from obscure to mainstream, from modern to classic, from genre to genre, it's a show about finding music to fall in love with, whether that's for the first time or all over again...
