Melting Pot

Wow, it’s been a full 21 days since I’ve been back on the blog! It hasn’t been because I’ve been tucked away in a Doomsday bunker waiting for the end times of 12-21-12, I’ve just been dealing with what felt like a pretty apocalyptic amount of grading because of my work, combined with a fundraiser going on a KPFK. Usually around this time of year I take a hiatus, but generally I do get the last show up before the hiatus, so apologies on that front. This show broadcast on Dec. 2nd, and was the last Melting Pot, before this week’s return. We began with a short tribute for an all too short life, highlighting just a fraction of the talent of pianist Austin Peralta. From there it was another smograsborg of tickets for shows that have now all be performed. At least the music remains. We’re back the air with our last “regular” show of the year, featuring some new music and some of my almost favorite records of 2012. On 12/30 I’ll be playing some of my favorite vinyl that I tracked down in 2012 and our first show of 2013 on January 6th will be our rundown of the best music of 2013!
