Welcome to the archives of Tears of the Gods, a radio show that now shares the Friday 8 pm to 10 pm timeslot on WMFO 91.5 FM in Medford, Massachusetts with Plastic Sushi, Strawberries and Time, both of which are hosted by Edward Beuchert. The Tears of the Gods formula starts with a theme that all the songs need to match, and then includes some kind of feature, like an artist or album, but instead of ruthlessly trying to play as wide a variety of different styles of music like Plastic Sushi, we might just follow one or two genres. Plus we also mix in lots of audio clips from who knows where

Here are some of the best shows:
