Brainwaves – Dec. 20, 2022 – Darkness into light

Written by on 20/12/2022

It’s that time of the year when Brainwaves explores the line from darkness to light in honor of Hanukah, the Jewish holiday that lights up the winter, taking place this week and next. First half of the show: all songs with darkness in the title. Second half: we turn to the light. On the dark side: Snow Patrol, Matt Pond PA, Yo La Tenga, Pink Floyd, Elvis Costello, Lana Del Rey and more. On the light side: Bob Mould, Todd Rundgren, Spoon, Gotye, Passion Pit, the Smiths…and that’s just getting started! Don’t let the light go out – tune in this week to Brainwaves!
