Melting Pot

Was really excited to play this show, with a lot of new music that just came to me this past week, including Ocote Soul Sounds, Pollyn, Kid Congo Powers, Amon Tobin and a true gift from the Gods, Samuel L. Jackson reading Adam Mansbach’s children’s book for parents, “Go The Fuck To Sleep!” Also a nice mix of newish tracks from the Sandwitches, Vieux Farka Toure & Derek Trucks, Boom Clap Bachelors feat. Robin & Coco from Quadron, the Black Lips and a few classics sprinkled around including the Father’s Day inspired track from Groove Holmes that starts off the show. I had a little bit of technical difficulties in the second hour which can’t be edited around. Sometimes the CD players at KPFK just don’t seem to like my music and this week they rejected the planned song from Amon Tobin. I tried to re-cue it up, but the CD player just wasn’t going to play ball. I might try to track it down on vinyl for this coming Sunday’s end of the month vinyl show (or maybe I’ll throw it up for a post here). Either way hope you enjoy the show.
