Bridging the Gap

Tonight on Bridging the Gap I'm running all over the place, playing all sorts of music, with no real theme or vibe... hope you enjoy it.

Earlier this week, Wonderwheel Records label head Nickodemus announced a benifit CD for the people of Puerto Rico, so i'm wrapping the whole show around it's music with a few other gems thrown in between.
Pick the album LOVE FOR PUERTO RICO here

Doing the flipside from last nights upbeat show, and keeping tonights set mellow, and cool.

On occasion I'll get a song stuck in my head and decide to do an entire show around it.... as in the case for tonight's show which is centered around a song called "Lysergic Bliss" from Of Montreal.  I've thrown in a fan made video at the bottom of the post.

The 1st show after pledge drive is always a strange one... a lot like coming down after a high.  So tonight's show is going to be a freeform mess of music going all over the place.

Yes! We did it, the HPR Fall Pledge Drive is history… Thank you so much for all of your support of both Bridging the Gap as well as the entire station. Tonight's sow is going to be a fun (uninterrupted) collection of upbeat songs, all of which are going into the bonus gift.

Here we go with Day 9 of the Fall 2017 Pledge Drive...AND the LAST DAY we're pitching Bridging the Gap.  So it's your LAST chance to pick up any of the bonus gifts for this drive.  We're asking for your support not only for this show but also for the entire station.

It's Pledge Drive and we're asking for your support not only for this show but also for the entire station.

Since it's the eve before the Pledge Drive, I'm doing something a little different, and at the same time very familiar. I'm picking songs exclusively from my "old" CD book, the one that came out to nightclubs when I was learning to DJ and served me during the KTUH years.

Celebrating the music of the late Charles Bradley and other tasty bits of Soul and Gospel tonight on Bridging the Gap.  

Spinning another night of eclectic jams for an upbeat Friday night session of Bridging the Gap.  

Errr like the title says... tonight we're listening to a random Thursday, with music going all over the place, but hopefully it'll be all killer, with no filler.  

So tonight I'm going to attempt a second Hip-Hop show, weaving in and out of radio friendly, and thought provoking songs with different...often jazzy cuts and reinterpretations.  

Rolling out the heavy brass for an upbeat show tonight on Bridging the Gap.  Expect to hear songs from the Rebirth Brass Band, new music from the Free Radicals, Preservation Hall, and more.  

Rolling out a few new discoveries as well as a few favorites for you Monday evening.

Keeping the music fun and upbeat on this Friday evening to close out the week.  

Following last nights very electronic, very beat driven show, I'm going to clear the air woth a show with a distinctly vintage sound, mixing Jazz, vintage West African dance music, and other little gems.  

Exploring mellow electronic beat music on tonight's show, with a special focus on Korean American artist TOKiMONSTA.  

Exploring Bossa Nova and beyond on tonight's session of Bridging the Gap.  

No theme... but keeping the music ecclectic and mellow for this Monday evening.
