While I'm normally much more partial to faster-paced, uptempo tracks, tonight's show will be a softer, more laid back affair. Indie rock, alt and a smattering of soul will make for a great show to ease yourself into the night.

Harrison is on vacation, so I'm putting together a show of songs that I've picked up... err or just plain stolen from him. Knowing his style, it's going to be a healthy mixture of Indie Rock, Garage and Americana.
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.

Happy Friday to you! If you're a regular listener to Bridging the Gap, you've noticed a few new voices on the air. We're adding two new DJs to the late night airwaves. Paige Okamura, better known as DJ Mermaid from KTUH will be taking over Tuesday nights, and tonight I'm introducing Harrison Patiño (also from KTUH). He'll eventually be taking over Thursday evenings... but for now is just taking over the second hour of the show.
