This month marks the 10-year anniversary of the CMGcast, a Thing You Can Listen To on the Internet since Glow alum Peter Hepburn kicked things off with what remains our only hosted podcast. It holds up well, as do a lot of those early mixes, actually, if you’re still interested in what we were listening to a decade ago—especially Aaron Newell’s two-parter, Sean Ford’s halloween party playlist, Dom’s mix from back when people used phrases like “a CD-R full of music,” and Chet’s rap-centric birthday podcast from early ’06.

First, though, before jumping back a decade in time and likely wondering why we all referred to David Greenwald as “Boogz” back then (and…don’t; the answer is way more juvenile than you’d expect), I give you CMGcast 153. It may not be a conventionally “celebratory” soundtrack for…anything, really, let alone an occasion such as this, BUT here’s a ton of gorgeous instrumental music alongside our favorite rap and experimental of the year anyway:
