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.

  I have no specific theme today, so I asked members of the staff - if you could choose one beautiful work to listen to, what would it be? You'll hear some of the results today. I'll try to play the rest on another program soon!

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.

On this day before the 4th of July -  celebrating the promise of America through the diversity of its Classical musicians.

  The music department at HPR is growing. As a result, we have been training some substitutes. The first, Sharene Taba, has been hosting once a week for a few months, and Maika‘i Nash is on his way to becoming another sub. He' been learning how to operate the Board in the music studio and doing announcements a couple of times a week. Today, Maika‘i will have his first opportunity to curate a program for Classical Pacific. Join us!

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.

  Today, comparing works of music by Bach, Bland, Strauss, Abels, chopin, Monteverdi, Shaw, Beethoven, Hanel and possibly more.

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.

Today - a program featuring brass instruments. I'll be drawing from music by Haydn, Strauss, Reicha, Tartini, Gershwin, Villa-Lobos, Holst, Williams, Wilder, Cohan, Sousa and Strauss.

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).

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.

  Today is Juneteenth, a celebration that began in Texas in 1865 at the end of slavery. I'll be focusing on African-American composers, conductors and performers today, including William Grant Still, Paul Freeman, Chevalier de Saint-Georges Aynton Marsalis, Billy CHilds, Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson, Althea Waites, Florence Price, Awadagian Pratt, Scott Joplin, George Walker, and André Watts.
