KPFK’s One Track Mind With Guest DJ Todd Simon!

Since I have no idea when I’ll be back on the air regularly at KPFK, I’ve tried to make good use of these moments when I’ve been able to fill-in for Kristi Lomax on her show One Track Mind, bringing in a variety of guests showcasing the sounds of LA. […]

KPFK’s Soundwaves X Melting Pot

Had an insane thought, that thankfully the crew at Soundwaves was more than happy to entertain, which involved them coming in and guest hosting on Kristi Lomax’s One Track Mind and me holding down Soundwaves’ usual 2-4am slot on the KPFK airwaves. It’s been a real LONG time since I’ve […]

Dig Deep: Alfa-Gungadin – Un Hiperconcierto! – Opic (1968)

Alfa-Gungadin – Carcara Alfa-Gungadin – Aprender A Ser So Alfa-Gungadin – Purple Haze Alfa-Gungadin – Para Decir Adios Today is Alejandro Jodorowsky’s 89th birthday. Jodo is one of my favorite artists, and I use that word very deliberately, because while he’s best known as a director, Jodorowsky has produced exceptional […]

KPFK’s One Track Mind With Guest DJ Glenn Red

Stars recently aligned perfectly and last night we had a Mardi Gras/Carnaval inspired show, with me putting together a long set of New Orleans Funk and Soul, and, after a short conversation at the end of the first hour, a full hour guest DJ set of Brasilian music from LA’s […]

KPFK’s One Track Mind…Mizell Bros. Edition

As school has started, and so has my long commute to work in Long Beach, I’ve been listening to more music, and to longer mixes, during my commute. For whatever reason, this mix from Matthew popped in my head and in the process it gave me an idea. As I […]

The Cats – Marian The Cats – Magical Mystery Morning The Cats – I Walk Through The Fields If you looked through the pictures for the Groove Merchant pop-up, you know this was one of the many records I ran into. The cover of this album is one of the […]

Groove Merchant X Rappcats 2018 Pop-Up!!!

Bit delinquent on posting this, but I’m gonna be catching up (promise!) here in the coming weeks. In January we got blessed with the 2nd Groove Merchant pop-up record shop here in LA, and it was just as amazing as the first time around. Circumstances aligned against me, so even […]

Melting Pot Radio Hour #11: Top Digs of 2017!

I’d planned on getting this show together before the end of the year, trying to maintain the tradition of doing these shows on the last Sunday of the month. But the end of 2017 was so crazy, with so much grading, and so many mocos when I got sick, that […]

Best of 2017: Top 5 LPs

I’m still more of an LP dude than a 45 dude, and generally end up buying twice or three times as many LPs as 45s, which makes it more difficult just to pick out 5 favorites from the past year, but here they are…my five favorite LP digs from 2017! […]

Over the next couple of days I’m going to highlight some of my favorite records that I tracked down in 2017. Today I just wanted to highlight some of the beautiful, outrageous, outrageously beautiful and beautifully outrageous artwork that was featured on records that I picked up over the year […]
