Katharsis Nov. 1 '15 (15th Anniversary Edition of Katharsis)

Tonight's edition of Katharsis is the 15th anniversary show. This was a bit like opening a musical time capsule. The original show was 4 hours, from 3 to 7 am Sunday November 5, 2000. From that show I have selected the tracks that, to my ears, have aged better than the others. Some substitutions from the same album were made in order to fit the current 2 hour format, but the vast majority of the tracks played tonight were the original ones played and in the order they were played (minus the culled tracks).

My tastes have changed vastly over the years. I now listen to a lot more experimental, neo-classical, and ambient music and less indie rock/pop, but I still enjoy this music. It is interesting that the more folk and rock based tracks have withstood the test of time better than the electronic stuff I was listening to back then. Will this hold true for the next 15 years?

Thanks for indulging me, and thanks for supporting the show.
