Playing a lot of tried and true favorites for this session of Bridging the Gap, because it's late, because I'm exhausted, and because it's my birthday (so I'm doing what I want). If you have the means to support public radio, please consider becoming a sustaining member.

A fresh set of feel-good and mellow indie sounds to bring us into the warm spring weather. Featuring newly released music from Real Estate, Big Thief, Xiu Xiu, Alicia Clara (pictured), L'impératrice, and more. 

Our Spring 2021 Fund Drive is underway, so I'm keeping the music close to home and playing a lot of favorites both old and new and trying to keep the music light and cool. If you have the means to support public radio, please consider becoming a sustaining member.

Starting the show with a song entitled "Colouour" by Moses Sumney (pictured), and we will see where the rest of the night takes us. An assortment of mellow beats, celestial voices, and ambient sounds tonight on Bridging the Gap.

With this slightly rainy weather I'm gonna 'hana hou' this older session of Bridging the Gap from last year which was a chilled and mellow selection of Jazz, Bossa, and Downtempo.

Spring is finally here! So we're celebrating with a selection of seasonal Indie, Jazz, and maybe a little Classical.

Tonights show doesnt pertain to a certain theme, but songs that I listen to when I want to relax to or dance to during these rainy times.  Expect to hear some Soul, Indie Rock, World music and much more.  Just another tibit of music to get you through the night.

Some psychedelic rock with hints of the blues to get you through the rainy night...

Tonight is in tribute to a family friend who pasted away just a day before my first show.  Deems Tsutakawa was a jazz pianist from Seattle Washington whom my dad was very close to.  Tsutakawa has performed around the world including in the atheron studios here at HPR.  The setlist will be primarily focused on Jazz with some Indie Rock, Funk, and Soul mixed in between.  R.I.P. Uncle Deems.

BBE Records recently released J Jazz Volume 3: Deep Modern Jazz from Japan. It's an excellent compilation featuring rare recordings from the height of Japan's jazz era, from the 1960s to the 1980s. Tonight, we will hear some tracks off this release, and from other well-respected Japanese jazz musicians... some from my personal record collection.

We lost the last Wailer. Bunny Wailer, one of the three original members of The Wailers passed away at 73, so this session of Bridging the Gap is going to be a quick sampler of Reggae and Ska.
