Melting Pot

We were finally back to just playing music this week on Melting Pot, for the first time in three weeks. Many thanks to everyone who pledge their support to KPFK during the fundraiser, we raised close to $3,000 on our three shows, which is no small feat given the circumstances. This week’s show featured new music from Aloe Blacc, Adam Franklin (of Swervedriver fame), Tender Trap, Seu Jorge, Bastien Lallemant, Orgone and music from the cast recording of Fela! Also some classic material from the Tuff Darts, Tim Maia and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.

Now that I’m getting settled at KPFK, I’m starting to think about the future possibilities for Melting Pot, including interviews, performances and many more giveaways. Next week I’ll have my “Best So Far” of 2010 show, so definitely tune in or check back here.
