There's a range of genres under the umbrella of mood music: beautiful music, light music, lounge, exotica, space age, easy listening, elevator music, Muzak, and even music for film and television, to name the major ones.
We couldn't squeeze everything in the mood music spectrum into this show, but there's still lots of fantastic selections for the genres we do delve into -- and a ton of great cuts left over for future episodes!

What do you think of when you hear the term "The Public Domain" in relation to music? Really old pieces? Music that has no copyright? Works in the Creative Commons? Perhaps even one or two specific genres come to mind? The label is a fluid one, to say the least, and complete consensus on it appears unlikely. In this episode we'll explore some of the ways the public domain has been understood and misperceived, and listen to music that's not only representative of these ideas, but also delivers the usual multi-directional jumble of music heard on the show.
