So light some candles, pour yourself a glass of wine, lay back and get set to enjoy two hours of great music.
About the Show
Crescent Moon Lane is a twelve-week summertime Internet radio series on www.seawayradio.com which will début on Friday, June 18, 2010. A locally produced alternative to more populist fare, it will feature a diverse selection of tastefully tranquil music tailored for late night listening. You’ll hear chillout, ambient, pop, singer/songwriter, electronica, jazz and other genres. You’ll hear music from as far back as the 1950’s right up to the present day. You may also hear the occasional surprise or two, just to shake things up a bit. Airing on Friday nights at 11:00 pm, it will set a graceful mood to close out your week.
One unique aspect of Crescent Moon Lane will be its emphasis on music that generally doesn’t get played on commercial radio. While many of the artists you’ll hear are mainstream and familiar, the focus will be on album tracks, B-sides and rarities from their bodies of work which are otherwise known to fans only. You’ll encounter the work of musicians you may have heard of but whose music you may not have heard. The show will also have a healthy dose of music by independent artists signed to Internet record labels, many of which are troves of buried treasure from all over the world just waiting to be discovered.
Crescent Moon Lane will be two hours long and commercial free. Episodes will be available for streamed archive listening and as podcast downloads after their initial webcast.

Born and raised in Cornwall, Ontario, Paul Aubin (rhymes with Chopin) is a man who’s worn many hats in his forty-one years. From artistic pursuits such as community theatre and graphic design to more serious ventures into political activism and LGBT rights, Paul is never one to stay still for very long. Music, however, is his life’s biggest passion. The first record he ever bought with his own money was an ABBA single when he was ten, but he eventually grew up to be an unashamed child of the Eighties, his first love being the synth-based pop of that decade. In 1991, however, his mind’s eye was opened to a much wider array of musical genres thanks to getting hired at a local CD shop, a field he eventually worked in for nearly ten years. Over time his tastes expanded and matured to include much of what you hear on Crescent Moon Lane. While he’s long gone from the business of selling music, every so often he gets recognized as “the guy who used to work at the CD store.”
Late night radio has always held a special place in Paul’s life. “There’s a character about it that you don’t get at other times of the day”, he says. “I remember loving late night shows on the CBC like Nightlines, Brave New Waves, After Hours and Northern Lights. Each of them went in different musical directions, but what they all had in common was the warmth and intimacy they exuded. Even though they had thousands of listeners across the country, it always felt like they were speaking directly to me. Those shows like that came to be like faithful friends – there for me every night regardless of what kind of a day I’d had, never judging, always soothing. That’s the magic of late night radio to me. I hope Crescent Moon Lane can capture some of that.”
