Harrison Patino

Briding the Gap, Co-Host

Harrison Patino developed a love for music and journalism during his time at The University of Hawaii at Manoa, where he recieved a double major in Journalism and Classics. In addition to writing for the school newspaper, Ka Leo, he hosted several shows for the school's student-run radio station, KTUH, and served in various management capacities such as General Manager and News Director.

An avid listener of punk, soul, world music and all things "indie," Harrison has a keen ear and an eclectic taste that he enjoys bringing to Bridging the Gap's Thursday night slot. In addition to his work on Bridging the Gap, Harrison also serves as a producer for HPR's public affairs talk show, The Conversation.

16 years ago today, one of the most iconic figures in country music passed away. So tonight on Bridging the Gap we commemorate the legendary Johnny Cash with some of his best songs, as well as tons of country, folk and Americana to round out the night.

We'll be forgoing any convuluted themes or metapohrical musical explorations here on Bridging the Gap tonight. Instead: upbeat, heartbeat-raising music - plain and simple.

School is back in session and August is rolling to a close, leaving the dog days of summer upon us. For me, the final days of summer evoke a feeling of sultry tension and moodiness - so I wanted to play some tracks to reflect those feelings. Tonight's show will feature some great acoustic tracks earlier on, moving to indie rock and soul in the second hour.

So Tonight on Bridging the Gap I wanted to do something of a deep dive on the Light in the Attic Record label. They specialize in previously unreleased or "lost" recordings from often forgotten artists. They also feature re-releases from cult musicians or more contemporary artists. Expect plenty of new, strange and eclectic sounds for this one.

Bridging the Gap's Harrison Patino is feeling warm and fuzzy tonight - though not in the way you might think. For tonight's show we'll be exploring fuzz, distortion and reverb as techniques of sound, and the psychedelic effect it has on the songs that utilize it.

In the world of butchery, the "off cuts" are the harder to find or less desirable cuts that prove just as juicy and just as desirable when given the proper appreciation. I'd like to think the same goes for music, so tonight we'll be playing some musical off cuts: lesser known tracks by well known artists and really great tracks by artists that are virtually unknown in the mainstream.

Tonight's Bridging the Gap is pretty straightforward: tons of indie new releases. We start the night off mellow and finish up the show with some heavier garage and psych rock tracks.

Is there a filmmaker with better soundtracks than Quentin Tarantino? As his new film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, is set to release tomorrow, we take a look back at the whole of his repertoire to showcase some of the best tunes from Tarantino's flicks.

This week we're commemorating the 50th Aniversary of the Lunar Landing. More specifically, here on Bridging the Gap, we'll be playing nothing but moon-related songs and tracks. Believe it or not, plenty of artists have at least one moon-related song. 

Sometimes the best plan is no plan at all. HPR's Harrison Patino proves that with tonight's Bridging the Gap, where he goes down the musical rabbit hole - exploring jazz, world music, indie rock, soul and even a few new releases to boot. Expect the unexpected.

To ring in this year's Fourth of July, Harrison Patino explores influential tracks of early folk, blues, bluegrass and gospel music that had a profound impact on the larger soundscapes of what can be called "American Music." Songs of labor, strife, belief and protest from turbulent times in the country's history on an atypically patriotic edition of Bridging the Gap.

For tonight's Bridging the Gap, another tribute to a New Orleans legend. Bandleader Dave Bartholomew - an early pioneer of Rhythm & Blues and Rock & Roll - passed away this Sunday at the age of 100. To pay homage, Harrison Patino plays some of his best tracks, along with some of the music of his contemporaties that he so deeply influenced.

For tonight's Bridging the Gap, Harrison Patino explores some of the most exciting new releases in indie, folk, world, punk and much more. All new music from across the musical spectrum.
