Following up last night's session of Bridging the Gap with Harrison Patiño and his Free-For-All show with another eclectic night of music. Expect a little Boogaloo, Psychedelic Rock, Soul, Dub and more.

Back on track and exploring new releases in this session of Bridging the Gap. Expect new music from Austin's Black Pumas, Ty Segall, and Quantic (pictured).

This past Saturday marked the 6th year anniversary of Bridging the Gap on Hawaii Public Radio. So I'm putting together part 2 of best of the show from the last 6 years, and sticking to the mellower side of the show for this Monday evening.  We'll also be paying tribute to Bossa Nova founder João Gilberto who passed away on Saturday at 88.

Tomorrow (Saturday) is the 6th year anniversary of Bridging the Gap on Hawaii Public Radio. So I'm putting together a best of the show from the last 6 years.

Celebrating an early 4th of July! I'm marking the occasion with songs about American immigrant stories, political struggles, freedom, and a few protest songs... just to remind us that we're from a country of immigrants and free thinking radicals.

Since Monday always seems like a good time for more mellow selections... I'm filling the late night airwaves with chilled beats and sophisticated Jazz.

Since the weather is still hot and muggy (thought it's supposed to clear up) and since it's now officially summertime, this session of Bridging the Gap is going to be packed with sunshine filled songs.

This session of Bridging the Gap is going to be a little random... about as random as the cat meme that's pictured. I'm trying to weave together a little Jazz, a little afro-funk, and a little indie rock into the next two hours... because why not listen to good music... why not make memes out of stuffed Persian cat.

This show started as a buffet of new Jazz releases... but morphed into a variety of Jazz, Americana, Latin and more. We're starting off with new music from Quantic (pictured DJing live in Honolulu a few years ago).

Celebrating the Summer Solstice with a collection of fun summertime favorites and a few new discoveries.

As you may have discovered…
I have a one-hour inflight version of this show on Hawaiian Airlines that’s on any of the flights around the world (but not on inter-island hops… as it’s just enough time to drink that little juice and land). So this session of Bridging the Gap is going to be some of the music that is going into the next inflight session, and selections from the previous show.

Taking a global hop for this session of Bridging the Gap, and running through a lot of the World Music that’s been building up, as well as a few favorites.

Really going all over this session of Bridging the Gap. Picking music mostly on the fly and skipping all over the place... and trying to hit some Ska, Cumbia and Hip-Hop of the two hours.

Cleaning off my desk... musically speaking, and working through all of the wonderful new music that's been piling up. The 1st hour will be more world oriented from Cuba to Cumbia. 2nd hour will be downtempo, and indie selections.

 

It's not quite summertime (the season technically starts on June 21st and runs till September). But the weather has been nice and it seems fitting to roll out some early summertime music. So this session of Bridging the Gap is going to be a sunny swirl of psychedelic rock, surf, bossa and other lightweight fun.

This week we're taking the show out of the studio and broadcasting live-to-tape from the Hawaii State Library in downtown Honolulu. All of the music will be selected from the library's collection and then reshelved for you to borrow the next day.

This show will go more into indie and classic rock with a little world music mixed in.

Tonight's show will be a little Hawaiian, a little Americana and a little indie rock.

On this Memorial Day I'm using the theme of memory to pick out mostly mellow songs about love and memory for this Monday evening.

So I've been itching to do another mixed show just focused on downtempo... primarily around a sub-focus called Mushroom Jazz... mostly instrumental Hip-Hop breaks with a jazzy influence pioneered by Mark Farina or a series of mixtapes. It's something to put on, chillout, sip your martini and nod your head to the beat.

Happy Monday. This session of Bridging the Gap is going to be eclectic, yet cool... and mostly mellow, featuring music from upcoming shows, and going across, Jazz, downtempo, indie folk and other suprises.

Nothing special planned out for this session of Bridging the Gap... just going to keep the music fun and eclectic going into the weekend.

It's been an emotionally draining week... and it's only Wednesday. So this session of Bridging the Gap is all about healing, hope and coping with loss.

The design for this show started with a modern take on Spanish Flamenco... but evolved into an exploration of Spanish guitar, electro tango, gypsy swing and more.

 

So there's no real theme for this session of Bridging the Gap. I'm just picking upbeat (fun) music for this Friday evening to lighten the air on the darkest of nights.

Picking out music entirely from artists from the U.K. for this session of Bridging the Gap. Weaving in and out of downtempo, grime, big beat, and a little neo-soul.

This session of Bridging the Gap is going to be a collection of new songs that move through indie rock, jazz and modern psychedelic rock.

Clearing off some new music on my desk and keeping the late night air filled with tribal percussion, mariachi and other delights.

Taking on a more tropical note for this evening's session of Bridging the Gap. Exploring new Bossa Nova, Latin, and indie fusion... all anchored around new music from Claude Fontaine (pictured).

Paige Okamura pays tribute to composer, arranger, producer, and recording artist Jack de Mello, following his recent passing at the age of 102. In honor of his innovation and influence on modern day Hawaiian music, she curates a selection of his work and the Hawaiian musicians he worked with, along with the mele of some of her favorite performances from this year's Merrie Monarch hula festival.
