Cafe Chill: Live Blog + Playlist

Sunlight filters through the verdant foliage of a rainforest teeming with ferns and draped in emerald moss.

Edit: Playlist added at the end

We’re drifting through soundscapes of Cafe Chill here on the C89.5 Spring Membership Drive. As the blossoms unfurl and the world awakens, we invite you to join us on this sonic journey.

Check out our new thank you gift: The Cafe Chill Non-Stop Stream, at the $20/mo level.

  • Jeez, Stunt Dad! Going big (in general) on the donations there! Three already!

  • I slept in and woke up very late, so I missed the first few sets, but, am now tuned back in and am already enjoying the sets! May or may not donate, I’m still a teen and my mom helps me with the donations, so we don’t really do much when it comes to contributions, but I like helping out when I can! 🙂

      • I often use Spinitron to see playlists I missed or playlists of episodes I missed or had to skip sections of due to Easter (I actually had to stop listening because I had an Easter Egg Hunt with my brother!) And other things, but it is also always great to put it up on the website just in case the coordination on other sites doesn’t work well. Thanks for doing this! Always great to have a playlist for a show for people to know what kind music and songs were on air!

  • My bird and I love dancing in the morning with Cafe Chill. We did a small monthly pet donation to show our gratitude. Thanks for playing Boards of Canada such a throwback jam aaah!! Love this show and station.
