A little bit of this, a little bit of that. I’m not one to really reminisce much, but when it comes to music, it’s all about reaching deep to connect the rich past with the progressive future. What does it matter what genre is played, as long as it gets played up against something that just feels right, right? Right.
In my early days of radio, when I was just a green newbie at KFJC, I recall the debate: play nothing but the newest of the new, and the edgiest of the edge, versus the need to add a taste of “accessible” sounds to hold the new music together like glue. I subscribe the view of the latter. If you tune in regularly, than you know that I always enjoy finding something new to share with you. You also know that my library runs deep. I can’t wait to play that “classic” you never knew existed, or haven’t heard in so many years, you forgot that you loved it.
That’s how I roll.
In my most recent show it is indeed about going deep to blend genres and emotions, to take you on an aural journey into the night (I am on 8-10pm after all). New music from Oh Sees and Mikal Cronin, along with some covers that you’ll be searching for as soon as you hear it from me.
As always thank you for your support. I really love being able to do this for you, week after week.
On tonight’s show, I feature some new music from Bay Area power trio KnightressM1, along with some psychedelic cumbia, some funky jams, and whatever strikes my fancy along the way.
