A Season In Hell

A Season in Hell #72: Radio Valencia: Where Have You Gone, Dr. King?

January 16, 2012
8:07 pm


Shareef Ali is in the studio in the first hour. He’s promoting a show this Wednesday at Bottom of the Hill.

Following this fine interview I’m focusing on a tribute to the late, great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

It’s all about the preparation. I often times pull too much music, which is good. I’d rather do that than not pull enough. I don’t time my show down to the second, but I always have a good sense of what should follow what. Radio is a craft; an art form. They say it takes twenty years to become a master. I’ve been doing radio since 1988; DJing since 1986. I don’t feel I’m a master in any way, but I really do love practicing my art every week. I’m blessed.

Tonight I went deep to pay tribute to Dr. King. I think you’ll enjoy the show.

Enjoy.

MLK Tribute and Shareef Ali on A Season In Hell, 8-10PM Tonight

11:26 am

It’s Martin Luther King Jr. day today, and I feel it my duty and honor to pay tribute to the man. Much of tonight’s music will be “Fight the Power” music, as well as songs in tribute to the great man. I’m in the mood for some funk, soul and hiphop.

Also, in the studio in the first hour is the very talented and original SF singer/songwriter Shareef Ali. He’s got a show coming up this Wednesday at Bottom of the Hill. Go out and support local, live music!

A Season in Hell with John Hell is on every Monday, 8-10PM (PST).
Go here to see all my past shows, including playlists, streaming and downloads of each show.

See you on the radio.
