HPR's Generation Listen Group is celebrating their 2nd anniversary by turning HPR studios into a vintage prohibition-era speakeasy... and they asked me to soundtrack one of the rooms. So tonight's show is a sneak peak of the playlist filled with vintage jazz, early rhumba and more. You can pick up tickets HERE.

This session of Bridging the Gap is focusing on a twisted corner of pop music called "Mash-Ups"... where two pop songs are sampled over each other creating a strange often catchy, sometimes annoying bastard love child of a song.
