EYE See You

May 20, 8am

It has been a while since we updated our ESBeats blog here. We endeavor to be more regular with our updates and back stories for the shows we produce. There have been some technical difficulties in the studio the last few times we’ve been in that have made it somewhat difficult to keep the listeners up-to-speed on what they’re listening to. Hoping we can fix that regular occurrence sooner rather than later.

We try to build our 2-hour shows around one-word themes. This past week was “EYES”. From “Eye of the Tiger” to “Bette Davis Eyes”, I feel we gave the topic an exhaustive look given the time constraints and look forward to revisiting for a possible Part 2 in the future.

You can access the podcast here: ESBeats: EYES

This weekend will be more of a “mixtape” type episode. ESBeats: Jukebox will be live on at 2pm PT on Saturday, May 21.



Fare Thee Well

November 11, 8am

This was the toughest show we’ve ever had to do. We lost our very good friend, Doug Powell, far too soon earlier this month. His kids have been guest DJs on Radio Valencia in the past and the ESBeats family is still in shock from the sudden loss. Doug was a huge lover of music. A devoted Dead Head and an amazing drummer in his own right (he even gave DJ Addimae her first electronic drum set earlier this year).

We managed to rally and pull together two hours of music dedicated to the man himself. Fare thee well, Doug. You will be missed but never forgotten.

You can learn more about Doug here… and how you can help the family here.

For now, sit back and close your eyes and remember Doug through music.
