This is the first day of HPR's Spring Drive, a time for us to encourage listeners to become members of HPR. On the Clasical side of the station this Spring, we took a poll to find out the favorite performers of you the listeners. We're going to feature performeer number 10 on the first day of the drive, and will continue to feature one artist each day, ending with number one on the final day of the drive. 

Tonight on Bridging the Gap, Paige Okamura picks songs to study to. Expect a mellow collection of Downtempo, Soul and Jazz. Education never goes out of style.

  The HPR Fund Drive begins tomorrow, so I thought I'd play you some newly arrived CDs before we dive into the fray. You'll hear performances by Rupert Boyd; Tenet; Marcy Rosen and Susan Walters; Jennifer Koh and Jaime Laredo; ACRONYM; and Marc Pontius. 

Don't worry, we'll still be playing music during the Fund Drive. You'll also want to tune in to learn who your listener-chosen Classical Stars turn out to be. We'll unveil one each day, starting from Number 10. 

Keeping it mellow for this Monday evening session of Bridging the Gap, with mostly indie rock/folk selections throughout the night.

Wednesday the Spring Fund Drive on HPR begins. Twice a year we do a ten-day membership drive to ensure that HPR can continue bringing you the great proramming that you've come to expect.

We have two days of regular programming before the drive begins. Today, Sharene Taba is hosting, as she has been for a past couple of months on Mondays. I'll be back on Tuesday and for the rest of the week.

The playlist for this session of Bridging the Gap started with the passing of Ranking Roger from The English Beat. Which put me down the rabbit hole of 80's music which will make up the majority of this show. But there is something about people who like 80's music... they're rabid fans, and as a DJ when you play one song, it breaks this damn, and you're literally flooded with requests for even more 80's music...

  As Women's History month nears its end, I choose to play works by women composers throughout the history of Classical Music. I'm choosing from works by Lili Boulanger, Clara Wieck Schumann, Francesca Caccini, Barbara Strozzi, Hildegard von Bingen, Rebecca Clarke, Anne Dudley, Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel, Teresa Carreño, Germaine Tailleferre, Amy Beach, Cecile Chaminade, Elizabeth Maconchy and Jacquet de la Guerre. If you listen to this program regularly, you may have heard works by some of these composers already. 

Tonight on Bridging the Gap, Paige Okamura selects her favorite artists that have performed on NPR Music's Tiny Desk Concert and is joined in the studio by Roger and Lei Bong of Aloha Got Soul.

It's Women's History Month, so I've chosen a second day of performances led by women conductors. You'll hear from Alondra de al Parra, Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla, Jane Glover, Anne-Sophie Mutter, and Gisèle Ben-Dor.

Taking that deep dive into new sounds this evening on Bridging the Gap. Super excited to be premiering new music from Quantic, Preservation Hall Brass Band, The Chemical Brothers and more.

  As part of women's history month, I'm focusing on women conductors today, and possibly next Tuesday. Although I include women in my general output for Classical Pacific, it's wonderful to be able to spend an entire program on them alone. Some of today's featured conductors will be Marin Alsop, Emmanuelle Haïm, Sarah Hicks, JoAnn Falletta, and Eve Queler.

More performances found in the drawer of unfiled CDs in the HPR Library. I'm inspired by the continued output of excellent Classical music, even as the conversation about its death continues. Your additional requests, comments are always welcome.

Happy Spring to you. Winter has offically finished... and we're headed for sun and warmer weather (by Hawaii standards). So this session of Bridging the Gap is going to be a collection of Spring inspired songs to ring in the season.
