Keeping the vibe upbeat, fun, and super random for this Friday evening session of Bridging the Gap.   

Afro-Funky theme tonight for Bridging the Gap ahead of my opening set for Jeremy Sole at Soulgasm tomorrow at Bar 35.  Expect a lot of complex rhythm, horns and some Fela Kuti.   

Weaving together a set of heavy sounding tunes, deep soul/funk and spacey electronica.  It's going to be one of the more challenging shows I've turned out.

For tonight's show I'm going to try and cover a little more new music, mixed into some old favorites... Then again, aren't most of the shows this same formula?! Either way, tune in from 10-midnight to HPR-1.

No real theme for tonight's show, just going to stray all over the place, with new music from Morrisey, The New Pornographers and a litte Bob Marley.

It's a funky friday so I'm weaving together an Afro-Latin-Calypso- Ska mixture to keep you dancing into the weekend.

Yesterday I went on a rampage of collecting new music.  So tonight's I'm going down the rabbit hole of new music.  I should add that this is not all going to be "new" music as in newly released... rather it's new to my collection and hopefully to your ears.

Tonight on Bridging the Gap I'm creating a show around a Canadian transgendered souls singer from the 50's/60's named Jackie Shane.  It won’t be exclusively her music, but will probably have a lot of soul mixed into the selection.

Running a show with no theme, rhyme or reason this evening.  Just starting somewhere and taking the road.  Will be playing new music from Khruangbin and Neol Gallagher's Flying Circus.

Since it's a chilly, rainy Monday, I'm filling Monday's airwaves with warm sounds to cozy up to.

Happy Black Friday! Tonight's session of Bridging the Gap doesn't have a particular theme... rather just keeping the vibes upbeat to close out the week.

Happy Thanksgiving to you! For tonight's show I'm going to fill tonight's show with music from the Hawaii Public Radio dinner mix that was released yesterday.  You can listen to it below too.  Expect tasty tunes to set the mood, inspire conversation, fade into the background, or fill an akward bit of silence.

Being the day before Thanksgiving cooking... or at least making a few sides is on the minds of many people. So I'm going to fill tonight's show with music from the Hawaii Public Radio cooking mix that was released yesterday.  Expect tasty tunes to inspire your culinary skills.

It's getting chilly (by Hawaiian standards), so I'm using theis session of Bridging the Gap to work out this years Fall/Winter mix.  So tonight's show will be a collection of mellow sounds inspired by these colder months.

Mixing up the music this evening for Bridging the Gap... with no theme, rhyme or reason, instead just trying to cover a lot of musical ground in a traditional AAA style.

It's Friday, so I'm weaving in and out of upbeat songs, leaning heavily on Mexican folk coming out of California.

Tickets to Monday's Valerie June show can be found HERE.

Featuring the music of Valerie June this evening mixed into other mellow songs.  She plays this Monday at The Republik 7pm.

Tickets can be found HERE.

Tonight's show is going to be a 50/50 show about love and heartbreak. I think (as of writing this) that I'm going to do one then the other, flipping back and forth.  I've wanted to do one of these shows for a while now, as these types of songs accumulate quite quickly.

Tonight's session of Bridging the Gap is going to be a "Blissed Out" selection of music weaving in and out of psychedelic tunes, fuzzy guitars and even fuzzier vocals.

Tonight on Bridging the Gap I'm keeping the music coming at you randomly, meaning the songs shouldn’t connect all that much (which is tough for me to do), but the whole show should keep a pretty mellow vibe overall.

It's Friday... and we're celebrating with an eclectic mix of upbeat tunes spanning a diverse array of styles and tastes.

Tonight's show is going to a mashup of new discoveries and other more recient favorites.

So for a while now I've wanted to do a set with songs about space, space travel, or about planets or constellations, so tonight we're going to give it a try.

I should also use the opportunity to shamelessly pitch the HPR Science Friday event with Ira Flatow next year. Tickets are available HERE

Today marks the 50th anniversary of the Public Broadcasting Act which paved the way for both PBS and NPR, so I'm marking the occasion with a few songs about radio and television in the 1st hour.

So I'm a little under the weather this evening, so I'm keeping the music (mostly) mellow and pretty with new music from El Buho and Natalia Lafourcade.
