Modern Jetset

Series produced by Iris Berkeley

Series image

Your (free!) weekly hour-long flight of eclectic new and recent releases, plus the vintage vibes that inspire them — all guaranteed fresh and fabulous. Come fly the fancy skies!

Host Iris Berkeley is your pilot for Modern Jetset, a weekly round-the-world trip through music from soul to synthpop, reggae to R&B, Latin to lounge, and more. With a strong focus on new and recent releases, Modern Jetset also connects the dots between fresh new favorites and the vintage sounds and retro selections that inspire today's independent music landscape. In other words ... it's the soundtrack to your utterly fabulous, secret-agent, oh-so-funky life.

Modern Jetset has been heard weekly on Radio Rethink since 2020 and on a growing number of terrestrial and streaming stations since then, with archive episodes available at https://mixcloud.com/irisberkeley/playlists/modern-jetset . With its multicultural, wide-ranging mix of styles, artists, and timelines, Modern Jetset works well next to AAA, eclectic, and music discovery, as well as genre programs like funk/soul, reggae, jazz, world, and more.

• Episodes can be broadcast any time — no date pegs in VO
• 58:00 program total, including floating 0:59 break near the bottom of the hour
