A week ago, I stumbled across an award winning series on CBC Radio which I absolutely loved! It was a called the Signature Series, and comprised of 5 minute podcasts about each musical key. Each podcast is a poetic narrative about the persona represented by that key, beautifully done by Paolo Pietropaolo, over mostly famous classical music all composed in that key.
You can listen to the series via the CBC websites, or on SoundCloud, where you can “collect” them by Likes or into playlists. However, the SoundCloud free account was so freakingly limited for what you could do with building playlists, especially for this day and age, that I’ve decided I’ll collect them here on my blog for reference, and to share with others.
Here are the podcasts of all the keys, from C to B like on a keyboard, alternating between major and minor keys. Enjoy!

Thank you for compiling these! I love this series and was very sad that the link was taken down from the CBC site, so really appreciate you collecting them 🙂
You’re very welcome, and thanks for letting me know. My work was worthwhile then. 🙂

Oh, goodness! I only posted about it. I could never do anything close to what was done! But yes, definitely awesome series! Glad you liked it!
