Celebrating this April 20th with a stoney selection of songs, and very excited to be dropping some new Thievery Corporation from their new album Treasures from the Temple which is out today.

 

Since it's been a rainy day, I'm keeping the music mellow and cool, with a few drops of liquid drum and bass.

 

Filling the night air this evening with the sound of new Jazz releases (and a few favorites).

 

So tonight's show will be my 1st show back on track, without a pledge drive or guests... and I'm filling it up with new music and a few new favorites.  Thank you again to Carlos Niño for stopping and guest DJing last night.

 

First regular show back after the Pledge Drive and I'm kicking it off with something a little different...and turning the controls over to composer/DJ/musician Carlos Niño.

 

 

Whew! The Spring 2018 Pledge Drive is a wrap...sort of. Suspended with $21k to go because of the Syrian strike.  If you want to still donate to HPR you can still do so on our website, and if you want the Bridging gifts, please say so in the comment section.

Thank you so much for your generous donations to keep this station afloat.  Thank you to the sustaining members who have brought us to this level... and thank you and welcome to all the new members who signed up this drive. We are nothing without you... literally.  

Day 9 of HPR's Spring 2018 Pledge Drive, and we're rusing towards the end! It's also the last chance to pick up any of the special gifts offered for my show. 
The music over the next couple of nights is going to be a collection of favorite songs pulled from the last 6 months, with a few favorites mixed in here and there.... and everything played is going onto the bonus "Bag-O-Swag".

So tomorrow is Pledge Drive, and most, but not all the music will be pretty upbeat for the next 8 or show shows.  So tonight I'm taking one more evening for quite cool before the storm of drive.

Ahhh the calm before the storm...at least two days of it.  With the Pledge Drive starting this Wednesday, I'm taking a second of calm to play a mellow show focused on jazzy chilled beats.

For this Friday evening I'm navigating between vintage latin and soul with a special focus on the new Orquesta Akokan album that came out today.

Putting together a SECOND night of new music tonight for Bridging the Gap... only this one is going to be a little more world music focused.

Happy Tuesday, I'm calling tonight's show (for lack of a better name) "Days of Twang" pulling it's name from a De-Phazz album.  Musically it'll be a dive into dreamy surf rock, twangy Americana/Indy Rock, and a few other surprises.

For this Monday evening session of Bridging the Gap, I'm keeping the music (mostly) mellow, to ease you into your week.

Keeping the music light, upbeat, and fun for this Friday session of Bridging the Gap.

So about 5 months ago, I the station received two boxes of CDs donated from longtime listeners Richard and Karen Valesek.  I’ve slowly been going through them and am putting together a series of shows pulled exclusively from their collection.  Tonight's show is going to be a eclectic mix of their music, running from Radiohead to The Roots, from Patsy Cline to Annie Lennox... and everything in between. Thank you again to Richard and Karen for their generous donation.

One day late, after the spring equinox... but still a good excuse to theme a show around the seasons.  So tonight's session of Bridging the Gap will be all about the sound of spring... laid back, pretty, and filled with life.

Tonight on Bridging the Gap, I'm weaving together a show of new music, and newer sounds and acqusitions.

No theme for tonight's show, just stringing together an eclectic evening of music to propel us into the weekend.

Putting together a show inspired by surfing… and filled with laid back surf rock, and fuzzed out garage rock.  I’m anchoring it around a compilation called The Dark Side from BBE Music.

Stuck in the middle of the week, so I'm putting together a themeless show, and picking music on the fly. I'm also using the opurtunity to play a few songs off a compilation called Bobo Yeye: Belle Epoque in Upper Volta from the Numero Group.

Since the weather is so chilly, I’m putting together a set of warm sounds to cuddle up to.

I don’t know where you live, but it’s been chilly the last few days (and I love it). So tonight’s session of Bridging the Gap will be file with chilled beats, and cool jazz to sexy up the evening.

Heavily mixing up the music for tonight’s session of Bridging the Gap, going both light and heavy, with new music from Jimi Hendrix, Ty Segall, Los Hacheros and more.
