In the debut episode of Signal:Noise, join host Mr. Chuck as he charts a course through the loosely defined theme of NEW, makes unfunny quips using the F-word, plays a song that contains both "the news" and "nudity," forces himself to forget the date of a band's upcoming show in Portland, plugs the EW's blog and new personals site, Wink + Kink, thereby unwittingly announcing that he's single, and features a whole lot of great music from Los Campesinos!, The Teenagers, Beach House, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, Muke, Cat Power, Handsome Furs and more.

DDDANCEEEE! Episode 2 of Signal:Noise collects songs with â€œdance,â€ â€œdancing,â€ or similar dance-related words in their titles for an arbitrary show that may or may not be full of dance music. As always, host Mr. Chuck trips over his words, nearly calls Austin, Texas Oxford, Texas, fails to pronounce Portland music venue Berbatiâ€™s Pan (and doesnâ€™t even try), realizes the Sasquatch Music Festival over Memorial Day weekend is absolutely going to kick ass, and plays new and old music from Ghostland Observatory, Justice, The Pipettes, The Cave Singers, Lucy Bland, The Breeders, Black Kids, Basia Bulat, Beck and other bands starting with the letter B.

The Sick Show. On the fourth installment of Signal:Noise join an ill Mr. Chuck as he charts you through the latest murky depths of electro-pop, bubble pop and just pop. He makes no apologies for leaving the Bâ€™s off his words because thatâ€™s what colds do to you! An F-bomb may make an appearance somewhere on the show. Every effort was made to obliterate such filth with the antibiotic bleeping tool, however: Parental discretion is advised. Wash your hands with the likes of Handsome Furs, Handsome Boy Modeling School, Animal Collective, Wolf Parade, Caribou, Portis-f**king-head!!!, Port Oâ€™Brien, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Ghosties, WHY?, LCD Soundsystem, Rilo Kiley and more!

Welcome to the fifth installment of Signal:Noise, where nothing is sacred. Join a one-eyed Mr. Chuck in the land of fourths and fifths as he checks out the European subcontinent (perhaps unintended), discovers the many shows he can "see" in Portland (especially the Doug Fir Lounge) in the upcoming months, describes Ladytron as a French band (it isn't) and plays music by the likes of Tapes N Tapes, Au, Blake/e/e/e, My Morning Jacket, The Dodos, The Long Blondes, El Perro Del Mar, Free Blood, The Boss REMIXED and more!

The LP Show. A show in which Mr. Chuck plays really, really, really long songs in honor of his bout with Mono, the viral infection, and subsequent road trip to Southeastern Utah for R&R and where he says the word â€œsongsâ€ incessantly â€¦ probably because heâ€™s feverish and delirious. But he does play long-playing songs from the likes of Built to Spill, Modest Mouse, Beck, Explosions in the Sky, Islands, Yo La Tengo, Animal Collective and more for a show that breaks out the jams and busts time zones.
