This week and weekend marks the 50th Anniversary of the Woodstock Music Festival. So I'm using this show to showcase some of the best known and unknown performances from the festival.

Working out the playlist for another Hawaiian Airlines inflight radio show this evening on Bridging the Gap... which means it's a collection of favorite songs entirely from independent artists.

The diffrent styles and influences of Paul Simon anchor this session of Bridging the Gap (ahead of his two nights at the MACC).

I'm been on a Hip-Hop kick the last few days. So the majority of this session of Bridging the Gap is going to be a collection of Jazz influenced Hip-Hop, and a few artists that are currently trending.

This session of Bridging the Gap is picked on the fly with a few target songs spread out over some really unrelated categories. So we're doing the weave together and fishing for sound.

Digging through selections of vintage soul, gospel and world all re-released from The Numero Group.

So we had some problems with the studio this evening... So I'm gonna Hana Hou last Friday's intersection of Jazz, Blues, Latin and Hip Hop.

It's been busy, very busy here at HPR. And to be honest... I haven't had the time to really pick out a proper show. So we're going with the flow this evening... and picking music from the gut and from the heart.

This session of Bridging the Gap is going to be a mellow psychedelic swirl of chilled beats and independent rock/folk... all anchored by Khruangbin.

Tonight I'm exploring the intersection between electronic dance beats, boogaloo, hip-hop, blues and other tropical elements.

No serious theme is planned for this session of Bridging the Gap, and I'm going to weave back and forth between Jazz and Indie rock for most of the night. All killer, no filler.

I'm breaking this session of Bridging the Gap in half. The 1st hour is wrapped around the funk of Art Neville of The Meters who passed away today at 81.  The 2nd hour will be filled with (mostly) mellow new releases including some Khruangbin, Leon Bridges and Moonchild.

This session of Bridging the Gap is entirely made of female artists from the states. The idea was to showcase the diversity of sound in this country... but it's going to lean heavily on Soul and a little Gospel.

Moody and Mellow music makes up this session of Bridging the Gap with bits of Bossa Nova, Fado, Soul and Downtempo.

Following up last night's session of Bridging the Gap with Harrison Patiño and his Free-For-All show with another eclectic night of music. Expect a little Boogaloo, Psychedelic Rock, Soul, Dub and more.

Back on track and exploring new releases in this session of Bridging the Gap. Expect new music from Austin's Black Pumas, Ty Segall, and Quantic (pictured).

This past Saturday marked the 6th year anniversary of Bridging the Gap on Hawaii Public Radio. So I'm putting together part 2 of best of the show from the last 6 years, and sticking to the mellower side of the show for this Monday evening.  We'll also be paying tribute to Bossa Nova founder João Gilberto who passed away on Saturday at 88.

Tomorrow (Saturday) is the 6th year anniversary of Bridging the Gap on Hawaii Public Radio. So I'm putting together a best of the show from the last 6 years.

Celebrating an early 4th of July! I'm marking the occasion with songs about American immigrant stories, political struggles, freedom, and a few protest songs... just to remind us that we're from a country of immigrants and free thinking radicals.

Since Monday always seems like a good time for more mellow selections... I'm filling the late night airwaves with chilled beats and sophisticated Jazz.

Since the weather is still hot and muggy (thought it's supposed to clear up) and since it's now officially summertime, this session of Bridging the Gap is going to be packed with sunshine filled songs.

This session of Bridging the Gap is going to be a little random... about as random as the cat meme that's pictured. I'm trying to weave together a little Jazz, a little afro-funk, and a little indie rock into the next two hours... because why not listen to good music... why not make memes out of stuffed Persian cat.

This show started as a buffet of new Jazz releases... but morphed into a variety of Jazz, Americana, Latin and more. We're starting off with new music from Quantic (pictured DJing live in Honolulu a few years ago).

Celebrating the Summer Solstice with a collection of fun summertime favorites and a few new discoveries.

As you may have discovered…
I have a one-hour inflight version of this show on Hawaiian Airlines that’s on any of the flights around the world (but not on inter-island hops… as it’s just enough time to drink that little juice and land). So this session of Bridging the Gap is going to be some of the music that is going into the next inflight session, and selections from the previous show.

Taking a global hop for this session of Bridging the Gap, and running through a lot of the World Music that’s been building up, as well as a few favorites.

Really going all over this session of Bridging the Gap. Picking music mostly on the fly and skipping all over the place... and trying to hit some Ska, Cumbia and Hip-Hop of the two hours.

Cleaning off my desk... musically speaking, and working through all of the wonderful new music that's been piling up. The 1st hour will be more world oriented from Cuba to Cumbia. 2nd hour will be downtempo, and indie selections.

 

It's not quite summertime (the season technically starts on June 21st and runs till September). But the weather has been nice and it seems fitting to roll out some early summertime music. So this session of Bridging the Gap is going to be a sunny swirl of psychedelic rock, surf, bossa and other lightweight fun.
