Melting Pot

Wow, it’s been a REALLY long time since I’ve been on the air! Just about three whole weeks. So much was going on on the personal end that I just needed to take a break, which coincided witth our recent fundraiser (thanks to all who supported KPFK!). Nice to come back to our all vinyl show at the end of the month, along with a number of things I just recently picked up around my birthday. Becky & Sandy you should be familiar with, since that’s what I left you with here on the blog, also fantastic music from Sonny Rollins, Laurindo Almeida, Funkadelic, the Pogues, Max Roach and we begin with a short tribute to the incomprable Chavela Vargas who recently passed away. Back with a “regular” show next Sunday and ALSO we’ll be back at The Virgil on Tuesday nights in a couple of weeks as Breakaway becomes a weekly affair!
