The Most Awesomest Song of the Day: “Silhouette Moon” by Dan Gibson!!!

I have a feature to recognize a slice of good music: The Most Awesomest Song of the Day! 

Here’s a link to the complete list:

I want to emphasize mostly, relatively newer music, just like on my weekly “Theme Attic” show, Wednesdays, from 12PM-4PM ET!

The show can be heard on WHFR 89.3 FM in the Dearborn-Detroit area of Michigan, or it can be streamed with this link:!

If you’d like to know what I think are even better than the awesome songs, have a look at “The Greatest Songs Ever Recorded”:! Occasionally, an “awesome song” crosses over to become a “Greatest Song!”

But I can promise this: I will not force my selections. If something doesn’t hit me, I won’t post one.

Everything I do has always been about shining a spotlight on the artist and their music.

Now I will have the potential to shine 365 more spotlights if I want to!


A series of albums that I ran across at every gift shop in a National Park, National Monument, or upscale bookstore were the Solitudes series of albums.

They consisted of atmospheric instrumentals featuring actual sounds of nature!

There wasn’t any jarring tracks and they emphasized serene, low key and lengthy, almost ambient moods.

I’ve picked up several of them over the years, and it seems to me that they all featured Canadian outdoorsmen, Dan Gibson.

I’ve since been pleased to find out that those recordings were groundbreaking both in their approach to natural settings as well as equipment that continues to evolve.

My selection for tonight’s Full Wolf Moon is “Moon Silhouette” from his “Wild Wolf: Mysterious Beauty” album.

I feel fortunate that I have had the experience of wolves howling in the wilderness.

Dan Gibson’s tracks put the listener right in the middle of those surroundings!

If you have headphones, use them for an even more intimate listen!
