Melting Pot

Yesterday’s show felt a bit schizophrenic. Perhaps it’s just because my mind has been in so many different places lately, tons of grading from work, getting ready to move to new digs, simultaneous surprise and ambivalence about the recent election and absolute shock over the sentence of Johannes Merle, who killed Oscar Grant, and the apparently small price of a human life. With all that as the backdrop, the show swings in two directions, mostly soulful or garagey rockin’, not sure why, but that’s the way it went. There were a ton of giveaways during the show (a big reason to listen live if you are in the LA area, though a few of these do make their way here), but really it was about the music, with new tunes from Dum Dum Girls, Zion I, Depedro, Frankie & the Outs, Chico Mann and Mansfield TYA. At the start of the second hour there is the second half of the Quadron interview (you can hear the whole interview right here), for which there was a tremendous response, which I’ll definitely let Robin & Coco know. Matter of fact, there were just a bunch of calls about this week’s show, and I really do appreciate how things are going as we continue to build on KPFK. Next week I’ll be moving, so you’ll be left in the very capable hands of Soul-sides.com’s Oliver Wang.
