So, I think I’m getting the hang of this shelter-at-home thing. I have more music playing than usual, and I’m actually getting along with my family! Who knew that bonding with family is actually a thing?
And when it comes to hosting my weekly show, Hell’s Kitchen Radio, on Radio Valencia, I have more time to go through my collection to choose music I think you’ll enjoy. This show was fairly diverse, and a lot of fun to put on for you.
I was reminded the other day that May 3rd is fast approaching, which means another James Brown birthday special is due. Many of you know I am a huge JB fan, and I co-host the annual KFJC 26 hour James Brown birthday special “Doin’ It To Death”, every year on his May 3rd birthday. Alas, this year, the special is not happening; a TRAVESTY!
But do not be alarmed, this Monday night, 8-10PM (PDST) I will be playing two hours of James Brown and James Brown-related material. So get your funky dance shoes ready to groove. Get on with your bad self, because John Hell will have you gettin’ up on the get down Monday night at 8.
As for this show, take a look at the playlist below and enjoy.
If you’re on the podcast page on Radio Valencia, then you will notice the little white dice on the green field. If you click it, you will be taken to a random show of mine. Go ahead, click the dice, take the ride. Thanks to my boy, Wrybread, for putting that together.
