On Tuesday, August 8th 2017, legendary entertainment figure Glen Campbell passed on at 81, after a long and very public battle with Alzheimer's disease. Back on Saturday, September 1st, 2012, Glen Campbell returned to Hawaii on what would be his final concert tour.

Keeping the sound (mostly) mellow and Jazzy for tonight's session of Bridging the Gap.  

Tonight's session of Bridging the Gap doesn't really have a particular direction... but just keeping the music mostly mellow, and very warm sounding.

Tonight's show is going to be a World Music 2 for 2.  I'm going to play two songs from either a country or style, and then jump to a diffrent one... all while trying to string them together somehow. (The things we as DJs do to amuse and/or challenge ourselves).  

Taking a dip into the cool waters of Acid Jazz this evening on Bridging the Gap.  

Tonight on Bridging the Gap we're closing out the week by skipping back and forth between music from Cuba and the Caribbean, keeping it light and tropical.

Tonight I'm going to try and keep to the traditional nature of AAA radio programming... keeping the songs and styles coming out randomly, as opposed to trying to find a natural flow to get one to another.

The Rippingtons are in town through Friday at the Blue Note Hawaii in Waikiki. During their Honolulu run of dates, the Grammy-nominated band took time for a very special afternoon with HPR All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence. They provided music throughout the show today, plus told compelling stories of their background.

Leaning towards a more "World Music" show this evening for Bridging the Gap... although sometimes it doesn't always work out that way.

Six years ago today we lost Neo-Soul singer Amy Winehouse, so tonight's session of Bridging the Gap will contain not only her music, but a small collection of Neo-Soul artists and bands that continue to keep the genera alive and thriving.

Rejoice! As we've made it through another week... (and my fever sort of broke).  So tonight's session of Bridging the Gap won't have any particular theme, but just be a tapestry of light positive tunes to usher in the weekend.

Donavon Frankenreiter returns to perform through Saturday night at the Blue Note Hawaii in Waikiki. When he was there in February, we recorded a fun All Things Considered interview/performance session in the Atherton Performing Arts Studio with HPR ATC Host Dave Lawrence. Today we enjoy a flashback to that as a little Friday treat.

Keeping the music chilled and mellow for tonight's Monday session of Bridging the Gap.

So I've got absoultly NOTHING special planned for tonight's session of Bridging the Gap.  No style of music that I'm featuring, no particular artist, or album.  Instead I'm just goin going with the flow and grabbing music for what feels right for the moment.

The Voice of Duran Duran, Simon Le Bon, took time for a conversation with HPR All Things Considered Honolulu Host Dave Lawrence ahead of their debut concert in the Aloha State.

Going Afro-funky for tonight's session of Bridging the Gap... NOTE: The Jamarek show I'm talking about on air is SOLD OUT... sorry for the confusion.  

Full Disclosure...  This show has nothing to cats in kimono, it was just a really cute picture.  But the show will have some Japanese music, and will be filled with World Music in general.
