Oh how I missed the rain. The sights, the sound, the snuggling. So this session of Bridging the Gap will be a collection of songs I got stuck in my head while watching the rain come down.

Picking up where I left off on Wednesday with an eclectic mix of World Music with an electronic beat driven touch. Expect bits of Cumbia, Afro-Funk and other groove.  The inspiration for a lot of tonight's show came from a Spotify playlist called Folk Fabrique

On good weekends when I have free time, I have a hobby of fixing and restoring old surfboards. There's something wonderful about breathing new life into something old and getting it back into the water. It's also an opportunity to listen to music uninterrupted. So, the music in this session of Bridging the Gap are some favorites when I'm surrounded by fiberglass dust and fumes.

Electronic beats dominate this not-so-scary late night Friday the 13th session of Bridging the Gap. What's scary is that most of it will be picked on the fly, and built around new music from Sault, Quantic, Bonobo, Kokoroko and more.

This session of Bridging the Gap will focus on dreamy indie pop and folk, while dipping into a little shoegaze and other bits of beauty... starting with a dreamy sun-soaked song from maye.

So as of recording this show... we still don't have a new president. But it's getting oh so close as votes trickle in. With that said I'm musically reflecting back on the last few days of election ups and downs with an eclectic, yet sarcastic selection of Soul, Indie Rock and Hip-Hop.

Sitting in live on this election night, and breaking in here and there to bring you the local election results. I'm picking music on the fly, and since we don't know the results, trying to keep it as neutral as possible.

Happy Halloween! Although we can't safely go out and celebrate this Halloween, we can still revel in the sound of it. So this session of Bridging the Gap will be a collection of favorite Halloween songs ranging from vintage swing to silly horror-punk.

Doing a mixed DJ set tonight on Bridging the Gap ahead of Friday's virtual dance party. It's the 1st public DJ set in a while... so I'm shaking off the rust and testing to see if I can still mix records. The event is this Friday at 8pm. RSVP from the link below.

Paying tribute to DJ José Padilla, who many consider the godfather of chillout music. He passed away last week at 64. He was the resident DJ of Café del Mar in Ibiza for 4 decades, and the music tonight is pulled from a few of their many compilations. We're also winding down our Fall 2020 Pledge Drive and if you want to (and can) support HPR...

There's a cosmic event happening this evening that takes place every two years where the Mars and the Sun are on opposite sides of the Earth. The event is called "Opposition" and it's great for checking out the red planet. So i'm using the oppurtunity to play a few songs about space, starting out with Bowie's "life on Mars".

Since mail-in ballots are arriving in Hawaii's mailboxes, I figure it's a good time to pull together a voting soundtrack to encourage all of us to fill it out and get it into the mail ASAP.

Picking up where we left off on Monday night.  I wanted to do a follow up show featuring the music of the Eighteenth Street Lounge and it's record label ESL Music. So this session of Bridging the Gap will feature songs taken from many of their compilations and remixes, so expect an eclectic mix of dub, bossa and lounge, as well as a tribute to Johnny Nash who passed away at 80.
