A TWILIGHT WORLD OF ULTIMATE SMOOTHNESS is a limited-run, six-episode, serialized podcast chronicling the decline and fall of radio veteran Greg Willis, host of the 11th most-listened-to, syndicated, smooth jazz/classic light R&B program on radio today.

Faced with anemic ratings, declining ad revenue, and weary management, Greg goes all-in on a promotion he’s convinced will revive his show: a star-studded, weeklong cruise along the coast of Canada. But getting listeners onboard proves more challenging than anticipated — especially when the acolytes of a musical icon infiltrate Greg’s show with a mysterious agenda of their own.
