Lake Air Deep Tracks Demos 1 and 2

Dear Affiliates and Listeners of Lake Air:

Over the years, I have been asked if I could incorporate more "New Age" music into the Lake Air series. To those who have made such a request, I've listened to you. I am producing a series of experimental editions of Lake Air which, for now, will be called "Lake Air Deep Tracks". These programs will emphasize New Age music without any Smooth Jazz. The format of these hour-long demos will also be different from the usual Lake Air format, in that the hour will consist of two longer music segments, not three. There will also be little or no vocal content in each hour.

I would love to receive feedback from listeners and radio station managers alike about these demos. Is this something you would like to hear more of on Lake Air? If so, would you like to hear it as a recurring "series within a series", say, as a once a month special? Or, would you possibly be interested in having this become its own separate series, quite possibly with a different name? I want to hear from you! Please e-mail me at Below are the first two demos. There will be two more produced for the time being, after which, I will evaluate listener and affiliate response.

Thank you for listening, and thank you for your continued support.

  1. Will also send you an e-mail somewhere along the line.

    We (KTWH-LP) are airing Lake Air, but we are well behind in the schedule - We are just now using up the issued in 2017 supply. I don't know how Lake Air may have evolved beween 2017 and the present.

    I don't know what defines a music as "new age", but (IMO) what you are presenting here is far more stimulating (a good thing) that the "smooth jazz" it is replacing. I pretty much detest "smooth jazz".
