Melting Pot

This week’s show represents one of those rare times where the stars aligned and everything just went right. One of my favorite DJs in the world, DJ Spinna, was in town to spin at Funky Sole, and with a little help from Music Man Miles (Thank you Sir!) I was able to contact Spinna and bring him into the KPFK studios for an interview and Guest DJ set (separate post to follow). Since Spinna essentially took over the 2nd hour of the show (I would have had him spin for two hours if it had been up to me, but that would have been just plain greedy, right?), there’s not a whole lot of music from my end, just a set, with a Johnny Cash song for Veteran’s Day as well as tracks from Nicole Willis & the Soul Investigators, Adrian Younge & William Hart of the Delfonics, Ana Tijoux (who also is coming to town soon, keep your fingers crossed about her potentially coming to the studio too!) and Kid Koala. This one is a special one, so please spread the word and I sincerely hope you enjoy the show as much as I did being in the studio to witness this go down.
