Check out what’s on The AIR, as Friday sees a brand-new, milestone episode of  Sydney’s Big Electric Cat. Sydney Fileen presents two hours of classic New Wave Music. You can listen at the website, or on this embedded radio player…

Friday at 3 PM you will get your two-hour dose of crunchy New Wave goodness with a modern twist. This week, marking her 50th show for The AIR, Sydney Fileen has assembled two hours of music by the top New Wave artists, made in the 21st Century. Every tune you hear this week was released after the year 2000, with some of these tracks coming out this year. The playlist below lets you know which year each song was released. In the show Sydney breaks formats a bit and tells you a little bit about each artist and how they’re still making vital and important music.

Best of all, while assembling this show, Sydney discovered that she has plenty of material for another two-hour program of all-new music by the legends of New Wave, so you can look part two in a week or two.

Just check out this epic playlist that Sydney has curated for you…
