HPR Music

Doing a (sort of) Flashback Friday and testing new/old gear at the same time tonight. So I'm going through my "old book", the CDs that I used in my early DJ career, and mixing live in the studio. Running through mid-tempo music in the 1st hour, then focusing on deep house in the 2nd.

  Today, flowers and a fresh breeze on Classical Pacific - a selection of CDs both new and drawn from the shelves, featuring music by Wei-Chieh Lin, Franz Clement, Francis Poulenc, Felix Mendelssohn, WA Mozart, Graham Koehne, Benjamin Britten and Antonio Carlos Jobim. A curated concert for spring.

Our DJ-in-training Harrison Patiño offers a diverse set of some Australia and New Zealandʻs latest and greatest sounds in indie and alternative (with a few older surprises) in celebration of ANZAC Day.

  Following up on yesterday's look at Les Six, I'm going back in time a little to a group of composers that influened them. The Five, or the Mighty Handful, a group of Russian composers, mostly amateur, developed a Russian sound in the nineteenth century. You'll hear music by Balakirev, Cui, Mussorgsky, Rimsky Korsakov and Borodin, as well as composers who influenced or were influenced by them.

Weaving in and out of songs sung acapella, reflective indie folk, and other global delights for tonight’s session of Bridging the Gap.

  Today, a virtual trip to France, in anticipation of the 200 member choir singing the Fauré Requiem tonight at St. Andrew's, under the baton of HPU's Director of Choral Activities Alec Schumacker. The choir is made up of HPU students, Kapolei High School students, and the Windward Choral Society, and is accompanied by members of the Hawai‘i Symphony Orchestra, including our own Sharene Taba. You can listen to three hours of French music on Classical Pacific, and then hurry over to St.

Dub-A-Lubba.
No words can describe what this means. But we do know that this session with Paige Okamura will be filled with laid back dub-groove vibes.

Today I'll be featuring new releases mixed with some non-traditional performances, including artists such as ACRONYM, Rachel Barton Pine, Avi Avital, Fire and Grace, David Amram, Rupert Boyd, Tenet and more. Join me!

Going back and forth between afro-funky zingers and pretty songs about the moon this evening on Bridging the Gap.

  Today is a Blue Moon, the type which occurs when there are two full moons in the same Zodiac sign. In celebration of this phenomenon, I'm playing music about moons and the color blue. As is often true, this theme allows me to play music you might not otherwise hear!

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.
