Ten years ago, on August 9th, 2005 Below Zero aired for the first time in San Francisco on the now defunct Energy 92.7 FM.

We were on for 4 hours every Sunday night and our goal was to deliver a mood, one that was relaxing and allowed you to drift into creativity, curl up next to your special person or sip from a glass of wine while looking at the stars.

Below Zero was founded by Mason Rothert and Sinukus, and over the year we would add several residents and be supported by many.  Brian Peek, Jason Teplitsky of Blowfish Sushi, Guiammue Simon of Shine, Lemongrass Music, Diventa, Om, Mixmaster Morris, and Julian Lennon.

We have been fortunate to continue to deliver downbeat music each week, and even though today we play in a very crowded internet - back in August 2005, there were very little shows doing this style of music on FM and the Internet.

Again, we couldn't have done any of it without the support of the many artists, labels and listeners each and every week.

So for the month of August we are opening the vault - going back 10 years.  Let's start with Below Zero's first show.  Here it is, remastered and what was going out over the airwaves in the Bay area on a Sunday night...

Enjoy, because it's time to dig on down - it's Below Zero.

Below Zero has costs to keep the show running in the form of hosting and music.  We appreciate any help to keep the chill alive.
