This week on Helping Hand it’s the Dental Lifeline Network, a nonprofit that provides access to dental care and education for people who cannot afford it and have a permanent disability, or, are age 65 or older, or, who are medically fragile. They could use more local dentists and dental lab support, too, and we learn more as HPR ATC Host Dave Lawrence speaks with Dr.

Tonight's session of Bridging the Gap will focus on bluesy, mellow, songs with a little spoken word.    

Rejoice as you've all survived another Monday! So to help you chill out, I'm keeping the music mellow and pretty during this evening's session of Bridging the Gap.

Tonight on Bridging the Gap, music from the new Quantic and Nidia Gongora album and a few Latin/Brazilian Drum and Bass tracks to speed you to your weekend.  I'm also playing some select performances from our Atherton studio to kick off the start of the Summer season.

Tickets for the Atherton can be found at hprtickets.org

Tonight on Bridging the Gap, I'm revolving around intelligent, mellow indy rock, with a few little suprises in between.  Also have one last pair of tickets to the Allison Adams Tucker show to give away on air.

Tonight on Bridging the Gap, I'm talking to musician, filmmaker and activist Michael Franti, frontman for the group Spearhead.  They play shows this Friday at the Republik and Sunday at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center.  So the music will be positive, with heavy reggae notes.

Happy Monday to you all! Tonight's session of Bridging the Gap will be nice and eclectic... but nice, mellow, and a sure cure for those Monday Blues.

Tonight on Bridging... a sort of Cinco De Mayo show. I'll admit I do have a little apprehension about celebrating a day that has more to do with college drinking than Mexican Independence.  With that said, it's still a great excuse to put together a great selection of Chicano/a artists.

Tonight's session of Bridging the Gap will have a more world music slant with a lot of music from Africa, and feature some new music from Bonobo, Gilles Peterson's Havana Cultura Band, and Nilamayé.

The Pledge Drive is over, and I'm back to a more normal show...and how strange it feels. Will be rotating in some new music from Gilles Peterson's Havana Cultura Band, and Jungle Fire.

Ahhh, the quiet calm before the storm. Hawaii Public Radio's Spring 2017 Pledge Drive starts bright and early tomorrow morning, and I have a feeling that many of the shows will be pretty upbeat, so I'm taking the opportunity to embrace the little calm before all of the madness.

Keeping it eclectic for tonight's Monday evening session of Bridging the Gap.  I think I'm just laying a little low before the upcoming Spring 2017 Pledge Drive which starts on Wednesday.
