Melting Pot

It’s been just a little over one year since I took over the 4-6pm slot on KPFK. I hope to be here for many years to come and hopefully this will be our tradition for future anniversary shows, showcasing the best performances from the prior year. Since the end of May last year we’ve had the good fortune of bringing in Pacha Massive, The Gories, Chicano Batman, Francoiz Breut, Quadron, Belleruche, La Sera, J-Rocc, Bing Ji Ling and most recently Corin Tucker. There are a handful of other bands I tried to get in, local, national and international, but things just didn’t work out, but hopefully will in the future. During the show I talk a bit about the interviews, some behind the scenes things and also about my hopes for the future of this program. Full versions of these performances/interviews can be found in the “Be Our Guest” section of this blog. It’s really been a pleasure hosting this show during this first year, even with the incessant fundraising, and I really appreciate those of you who listen to the show and have been spreading the word. Next week we’re back to regular business as we move on to year #2!!!
