Going to Hana Hou this mellow show from last year as an early Fall treat, and falling back on my DJ speciality... chilling out with a mellow downtempo filled session of Bridging the Gap. Chilled vocals, instrumental beats and delicate bossa fill the late night airwaves.

The station is currently participating in BMI charting, so I'm using the opportunity to play a few artist that deserve some credit, where credit is due. So it'll be an eclectic collection of independent artists running over different genres.

In this session of Bridging the Gap we're playing tribute to those we've lost so far in 2020, some from complications from COVID-19. I'm sticking closely to Jazz, so there will be a few artists left out here.

I'm gonna Hana Hou last Friday's summertime session of rare groove for this evening's Bridging the Gap. Think Fender Rhodes vs. funky guitar.

So I'm starting this session of Bridging the Gap where I left off with Monday's show and Cornershop's Brimful of Asha, and then take it from there. Either way expect an eclectic ride filled with a few strange covers and curveballs.

Happy Labor Day to you and yours! I'm exhausted and running on auto-pilot for this show, so I'm taking the easy road and playing a bunch of fun yet familiar songs for this session of Bridging the Gap. Expect an eclectic stroll through, Indie Rock, Ska, and a little Electronic music.

A companion show the Wednesday's Summertime Lounge show. This time it's sunshine filled rare groove to take us into the long weekend.

Kicking back and selecting warm sunshine filled selections of Downtempo, Indie rock and maybe a little Jazz for this session of Bridging the Gap. This is the perfect playlist for that refreshing rum filled cocktail sipped along the water.

Slowing it down in this session of Bridging the Gap with mostly new music from Zero 7, Heartless Bastards, Tricky, and more.

Going backwards in this session of Bridging the Gap. Doing a live DJ set, but going against the grain and starting off upbeat and then slowing the tempo over the course of the show.

So this session of Bridging the Gap is another special one, and it's also pre-recorded. This is basically a playlist to my new baby, who at the time of recording this, is not born yet. But it's filled with mellow songs of love and hope for things to be.

So my wife and I are having a baby (surprise!), and she's just gone into labor. So this session of Bridging the Gap is pre-recorded, and will feature a very tongue-in-cheek selection of music about pushing, dropping, and break-throughs.

Putting together a global groove for this session of Bridging the Gap, with hints of Cumbia, Rai, Electro-Latin and other funky delights.

Tonight I'm stealing summer (sort of). Actually, I'm building a summertime selection from other playlists compiled by Thievery Corporation. So it's going to be a warm mixture of loungy Jazz, Bossa and Downtempo.

Keeping the music chilled and mellow for this session fo Bridging the Gap, going in and out of Jazz, Bossa, and Downtempo.

Selecting a more electronic beat heavy colletion of music for this session of Bridging the Gap, rainging from Dancehall, to Jazzy House to broken Latin breaks.

Full disclosure... it was a busy day here at HPR, with zero time to prepare a show for tonight. So I'm picking this one out on the fly, and just going the flow. Hopefully it doesn't suck.

Exploring the sensitive side of indie rock and singer-songwriters in this session of Bridging the Gap, with new music from Madeline Kenney (Pictured), Angel Olsen, and Dirty Projectors.
