Melting Pot

kpfk-logo

We begin the show with a song from the great Mariachi singer Miguel Aceves Mejia in honor of Cinco De Mayo, a holiday I’m especially thankful for (check the history if you don’t know) and this week in particular I was especially thankful just to even be on the air. On Saturday I was involved in a accident while riding my bike in Pasadena. The car I slammed into had the worst of it, but considering how bad it could have been I was just thankful to even be more or less in good health. Unexpected moments like that can really make you think about your blessings. It’s a great privilege to host this show on KPFK and be able to bring music to the people on a weekly basis. That is especially so with shows like this past week where we were able to broadcast our interview with LA’s King (separate post to follow). King are a really special group and it was a real pleasure to have them perform for our listeners. During the first hour of the show, there’s a fair amount of new tunes, including tracks from Shannon & the Clams, King Midas Sound, Girls Names, Jungle Fire, Nametag & Nameless, Czarface and more. After 4 straight weeks with guests & interviews, next week should be just a regular show, but since it’s Mother’s Day, we’ll likely have something special going on, please tune in then.
