Chris In The Morning is an eclectic music radio show presented and produced by Christopher Bingham, showcasing exciting tracks both new and old. Each episode is roughly one hour and features a specially curated playlist. You can listen to the show here or on Mixcloud.
CITM is aimed at people who love music and want to discover new artists, capturing the excitement of a good old-fashioned record sharing session, dubbing a mixtape for your friend, or the joy of finding your new favourite band completely by accident. It’s made for music nerds, basically.
You won’t love everything I play, of course, and if I don’t like it I’m not going to put it on a playlist, but I try to keep my curation exciting, energetic, novel, and fun. All eras and genres are on the table, but I have a tendency to favour noise, maximalism, metal, saxophones, synthesisers, prog, heavy percussion, innovative production techniques, and unusual vocals.
To get an idea of what to expect here’s a list of artists. But remember, just like stonks, past performance is not indicative of future results…
