All this week, the Bridging the Gap crew is turning out an All Vinyl Week... and I'm following up with a few favorites on wax... this time it's all LP's and 12"s, but still eclectic.

The music from tonight's special all-vinyl edition came from my own personal collection of Hawaiian music. The first hour is full of classics and music off of some hard-to-find albums. The second hour is meant to whisk you away with my favorite mix of Hawaiian symphony music mixed with mele kahiko and so much more. Come live the fantasy with me!.

All this week, the Bridging the Gap crew is turning out an All Vinyl Week... and I'm kicking it off with a set entirely of 45's. Why? Because it's a challenge, and some of my rarest records are on 45s.

We're kicking off a new series of Bridging the Gap, called The Time Capsule... where we take a deep dive into a single historical moment in musical history. Tonight we're joined by Sharene Taba, from HPR-2 who is curating a selection of Punk and New Wave from Hawai'i.
