Melting Pot

This past week’s show was very difficult. More than getting back into the swing of things after an unusually difficult move to a new apartment (thanks again to Oliver Wang of Soul-Sides for filling in), my mind, body and soul has been with my wife’s family after the passing of her mother, Pascuala Gutierrez. I start and finish the show with two tributes to her memory which will live on in all the people who lives she has touched. The show begins with a short set of some of her favorite songs and artists and I close playing a whole side of music from Duke Ellington, featuring Mahalia Jackson in some of her most uplifting work. Posts will remain intermittent this week…
