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).

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.

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

Keeping the music warm and breezy (if not a little heartfelt) tonight on Bridgin the Gap.

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.

So I'm sick... pretty sick with a pretty nice fever.  So to make light of it the theme for tonight's session of Bridging the Gap is going to be "FEVER" and songs associated with being sick.

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.

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.
