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.

Paige Okamura pulls heart-strings with a post Valentine's Day selection of Bridging the Gap.

  As we prepare for our next fundraiser at HPR, we're asking listeners to choose their three favorite Classical musicians, a daunting task. Leading up to that time, I'll be playing lots of performances by great musicians, to help you make your decisions. Today I'm focusing on string players of violin, viola, cello and bass.

Since this was the week of radio firsts and experimentation... I'm taking it one step further and doing this session of Bridging the Gap on DJ gear. So all the songs will be mixed together... it's the closest you'd get to a live set in a nightclub.

  As part of my ongoing mission of introducing listeners to composers from every era and style, I often choose a theme based on a seemingly random focus - today it's John "Do", music by people from various places and periods whose names are John, Johann, Johanna, Jean, or who may be anonymous, and whatever else I've drawn from the HPR Music Library and my own library. There are so many to choose from!

Happy Valentine's Day! We taped this show last night in front of a live audience at HPR Gen Listen's Speakeasy.

Celebrating International Clash Day with a number of other public Radio stations. International Clash Day is an all day long, all across the globe, celebrating music as a tool for social consciousness, and the 40th anniversary of the Clash’s London Calling. It’s anti-racist, and anti-fear, pro-solidarity, pro-unity, and pro-inclusion kind of day and kind of setlist for this session of Bridging the Gap.
