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.

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.

I keep coming back to this picture of a blue fighting fish that was used for an earlier episode of Bridging the Gap... so I decided to soundtrack it, and put together a show of mellow reflective folk, country, and blues for tonights show.

Doing a (sort of) Flashback Friday and testing new/old gear at the same time tonight. So I'm going through my "old book", the CDs that I used in my early DJ career, and mixing live in the studio. Running through mid-tempo music in the 1st hour, then focusing on deep house in the 2nd.

Weaving in and out of songs sung acapella, reflective indie folk, and other global delights for tonight’s session of Bridging the Gap.

Dub-A-Lubba.
No words can describe what this means. But we do know that this session with Paige Okamura will be filled with laid back dub-groove vibes.

Mellow vibey moods occupy the late night airwaves tonight on Bridging the Gap.
