In 1977, NASA launched twin probes into deepest space, each bearing a message for whatever intelligent life it might encounter there: a gold record embossed with the sounds of life on earth. The record included greetings in dozens of languages, recorded bird- and whale-song, and 60 minutes of human music from around the world—our planet’s greatest hits. The name of that mission was “Voyager”.

Honest JohnIn 2022, star-/navel-gazer Honest John sets out to continue that mission with a cosmic voyage of his own. Christening each new week with a mix of music worthy of otherworldly attention, this mission—also dubbed Voyager—recognizes no borders of nation or genre. Listeners can expect afrobeat to rub elbows with swamp-soaked funk, for shoegaze to go toe-to-toe with country, for lo-fi folk legends to share the air with hi-fi fusion auteurs. This musical stew comes sprinkled with found sound and sci-fi shenanigans, as well as commentary from Honest John and his virtual cohost, DJ Computer. More than just a mixtape, Voyager aims to be a weekly vibrational alignment, helping listeners start their week off on the left foot.
