Star's End radio show: 25 significant Star's End albums (2001)

Postby Pierre » Thu Apr 04, 2019 12:31 pm

Quoting their website: "STAR'S END is (with the exception of "Music from the Hearts of Space") the longest running radio program of ambient music in the world. Since 1976, STAR'S END has been providing the Philadelphia broadcast area with music to sleep and dream to."

And for the list itself: "STAR'S END arrived at its 25th year of continuous broadcast in 2001. To help mark this milestone. the STAR'S END website has compiled the 25 significant albums that have helped to define, shape and contribute to the radio show and to the musicians, artists and enthusiasts who make up our varied and wonderful community.[...] These 25 albums were selected on the merits of their orginality as well as the lasting impact they have made on STAR'S END and on the many music genres that make up the radio show."

List here:
