Tonight I'm trying something a little diffrent and mixing a lot of Hip-Hop into the show.  But I'm leaving out all of the selections that are aggressive, misogynistic, or violent.  It'll be fun and upbeat in the 1st hour, and mellow and Jazzy in the 2nd.

So on my way to grab dinner from Don Quxoite across the street from HPR Studio's I stopped by Book-Off, the tiny used book and music shop tucked into the corner, and ended up picking out a lot of music... SO tonight's session of Bridging the Gap will be picked entirly from CD's I just bought in the hour before the show.

Happy Summer Solstice! Tonight's session of Bridging the Gap is going to be a light summery blend of music, weaving in and out of bright Downtempo, indy rock, and everything else in-between.

I'm randomly calling tonight's session of Bridging the Gap "Haunted Nights on the African Plain".  I don't fully know why, but hopfully the music fits the theme.

Mixing classic Latin Jazz with a little bit of Colombia, Lisbon, and winding down with some warm surf rock on tonight's session of Bridging the Gap.

Blending layers of Jazz, Funk, and Soul tonight on Bridging the Gap.  Also giving away a pair off passes to the Goodfoot show Saturday in the Atherton and the Gay Men's Chorus on Sunday.

It seems around once a week (these days) I go into the studio empty handed... and without a plan and just pick music off the shelves.  It's pure DJing and these shows (usually) turn out to be my best work.  Tonight's show is going to be one of them, and hopefully it won't suck.  

Keeping the music cool, mellow, and chilled on this Monday evening with new music from LA tape delay soul group Moonchild and so much more.
