The Last Episode!
It has happened!
Radio Bob finally proposed!!
Now the two of us are getting married and moving to Tahiti!

so no more Double Wide Hour of Love and Peace for a while, at least for the foreseeable future, that is. Instead, will be living the life of the rich and famous, sitting on the sand and sipping rum drinks.

I guess we better play some Grateful Dead tunes:

"Uncle Johns Band"
"Sugar Magnolia"
"Scarlet Begonias"
"Friend of the Devil"
"Casey Jones"

Then some potential wedding songs:

"Never, My Love" The Association
"Longer" Dan Fogelberg
"Time in a Bottle" Jim Croce
"Dedopolis" Japa Kaur
"Want it to be You" Japa Kaur

Miscilany, just cuz:

"Choo Choo Ch'Boogie" writte by Vaughn Horton, Denver Darling, and Milt Gabler (bet no one knew that)
"Goin' to Mardi Gras" Professor Longhair
"Big Bamboo" Mighty Sparrow
"Know you Rider" Traditional

wow wow wow

Piano up the Wazoo - take two!

more wazoo for you -
or, more piano for you, as it were

due to technical snafus on last week's show, we didn't exactly get as much piano up the wazoo as we would've liked to, so we decided to offer up some more of it this week, for your listening, and, uh, wazooing, pleasure.

Piano up the Wazoo
May 9, 2013 10:00am


Piano up the Wazoo

Well, it started out on a good note, with some really good intentions, but then, uh, while attempting to amplify the piano a little more, Radio Bob, uh...

sure, blame it on me....

well, Bob, you're the one that, uh....
pulled the internet cable out of the laptop when you went to check the mixer.

uh, no, that'd be you, Japa....

well, let's just say that the show kindof ended abruptly before we really got it into it, so, hopefully we'll get that piano up the wazoo for you next week.

Poems with Agnew T. (Goldwater) Pickens
February 28, 2013 10:00am


Poems with Agnew T. (Goldwater) Pickens
wow, who knew that the Double Wide was into poetry?
not me.
me neither.
well, I guess this week, we are.

after some delightful live piano numbers, I suddenly feel in the mood for some poetry. and low and behold, it is so.
A couple readings from his recently published book, "Space Christals" and then a talk with the author/poet himself, which blossoms into a rather thought-provoking discussion on the government, GMO's, and other fun things.

ending on a more up note with poems about love and the ever popular "Cora Lee Brine"...drivin' through rain, high on romaine...

much love to the Agnew T.. Thanks for being a *very* special special guest on the double wide, all the way from Antarctica, via Ohio...did I get that right?

hello to the boys at the coffee house.
let's celebrate.

until next time, waheguru
that's what she said.

wow, Japs, that's so exciting!

in fact, so exciting that we dedicated the entire Double Wide Hour to Mr. Remarq Johnson who totally rocked it out with his guitar, beautiful vocal presence and philosophical food about life, love and all things deep. check out his "existential lullabies" - a genre on which he has cornered the market. quite effectively, I might add.

So yeah, here is Remarq, in all his *remarqable* glory.

Dreaming Collective
My World
So Real
Tigule (probably spelled wrong)
Bubble Rising
King of Fools
Legend of Argon Vancouver Part 1

The Paul Addis Tribute Show
November 1, 2012 11:00am


The Paul Addis Tribute Show
Long live Paul Addis!

His wit, eloquence, intelligence, artistry, talent, laughter and balls-out approach to life was an inspiration us all. Well, to me, at least.

Not only a good friend and Bay Area artist, and performer, Paul Addis was also a fellow DJ here on Radio Valencia. In fact, he was the one who hosted me during my first on-air appearance on this station. Be sure to check out recordings of one of the great legacies he left with us, the podcasts of his show, "Revolution Clash."

This episode of the Love and Peace Hour is dedicated to you, Paul.

Giving voice to your words on the air, to mingle along with a couple songs I think you'd enjoy hearing, and at least one that you most surely would meet with disdain*, here we go:

"Dust in the Wind"
"Joy to the World"
"This Space for Rent"
12 Bar Blues Piano Jam...

over and out.
Paul Addis cleared for flight.

The Once in a Blue Moon Mutti Concert
A re-creation of a concert that I put on in Maine this summer in honor of my 91 year old grandmother, Mutti, on the occasion of the Blue Moon in August, 2012.

My Grandmother has been referred to as "Once-in-a Blue Moon Mutti" since she is the kind of amazing person that comes around only once in a Blue Moon.

Hence the name, and hence the concert, and yes, I was very stoked to be in her presence on this wonderful and special occasion.

Re-live the glory here on Radio Valencia, via the "Love and Peace Hour with Japa"

J.S. Bach, "Musette"
L.V. Beethoven, "Fur Elise"
Japa Kaur, "Meu Piano"

Japa, "Barco do Paz"
Janis, Mercedes Benz

F.& B. Bryant, "Rocky Top"

Merle Haggard, "Old Man from the Mountain"
Japa, "The Moth"

Sherwin Day, "Serenade"
Carole King, "You've Got a Friend"
Rodgers & Hart, "Blue Moon"

so yeah, it was a fun evening, fun occasion, and fun to re-create this event dedicated to the one and only Once in a Blue Moon Mutti.

Radio Bob: waheguru

Live from Maine
July 12, 2012 11:00am


Live from Maine
This week, Radio Bob and I are stoked to be hosting "The Nodes!" a Maine-Made bass and guitar duo featuring singer songwriter Mike DeRoche on vocals and guitar and Steve Hamilton on bass.

In this episode, we'll be featuring Mike's original numbers, which capture his songwriting talent, rich vocals, and consciously-minded lyrics.

Mike shares his ideas of living simply, staying close to nature, taking care of the environment, and remaining in the present.

Meanwhile, Steve Hamilton offers a strong and steady bassline to accompany his good friend and co-hort.

Radio Bob: hey Japa, how did you meet these guys, anyway?
Japa: Well, Radio Bob, like 8 years ago, I was hanging out in front of my mom's house at her yard sale in Portland, Maine, and along comes this friendly looking guy and we strike up a conversation and, well, enter Steve Hamilton. Somehow he got a hold of the latest album of "SuperNova", and believe it or not, years later he still has the album, (maybe even actually still listens to it!), thought, "hmmmm, I wonder what that girl is up to now...?" started checking around on the internet and whatdooyahknown, found the Love and Peace Hour with Japa.

Next thing you know I'm hanging out in his basement with Mike DeRoche, live from Falmouth, Maine, broadcasting songs of love and peace.

So here it is: an exciting episode featuring the original songs of Mike DeRoche with Steve Hamilton on bass.


"You Get it"
"Changes" (David Bowie)
"The Day"
"The Fisherman Song"
"Grow Your Own Tomatoes"
"The Garden"
"Ripple" (Grateful Dead)

*Super* stoked to have you guys live on the air today. We are honored!

and if you want to hear more music from The Nodes, or want to get in contact with Mike or Steve, send an e mail to:

Live from the Rainbow Gathering, Cherokee National Forest, Tennessee
July 5, 2012 11:00am


Live from the Rainbow Gathering, Cherokee National Forest, Tennessee
Recorded on-location in the forest of northeast Tennessee, Radio Bob and Japa bring you a live and spirited version of the Love and Peace Hour, an authentic and unique experience from the National Rainbow Gathering, a huge campout in the woods which takes place around the 4th of July in a different part of the country every year.

This week Japa and RB brave the bugs, humidity, and smelly hippies to bring you and up-close and personal report of this annual gathering of love and peace. Good times, man.

Community kitchens, clay ovens, clever water filtration systems, trench-style shitters, this gathering is a good example in community living and sustainable practices - not to mention love and peace!

Everywhere you went, you'd hear, "Lovin' you, sister! Lovin' you, brother!", and the occasional, "Random pocket trade?" Empty your pocket contents into your hand and blindly trade it for whatever pocket contents your friendly rainbow brother has to offer.

"Besides quinoa, steamed greens and celery, I mostly offered up songs," says Japa. "Taking requests, winging newly-learned covers, and dusting off moldy oldy originals. I pretty much had my guitar with me everywhere I went."

Catch a piece of the action from one sunny afternoon when Japa pushed record on the ole Zoom H2n to capture a riveting 60 minutes of the 2012 Rainbow Gathering to comprise this week's *thrilling* episode of The Love and Peace Hour with Japa.

and the spirit of newly-learned originals, requests taken, and moldy oldy originals, Japa and Radio Bob are *proud* to bring you...

"Over the Rainbow" Judy Garland
"That's Amore" Dean Martin
"Crazy Over You" a Japa original
"Summer of '69" Bryan Adams
"Jack and Diane" John Cougar Mellencamp
"Uncle John's Band" Grateful Dead
"Crave City" another Japa ditty
"Aime" Pure Prairie League
"Old Man" Neil Young
"Mercedes Benz" Janis Joplin

hope you enjoy, especially when the melody gets rough, the tune is unknown, but the song just keeps on going...

and tha-the-the-thuh-the-thuh that's all, folks...
