Melting Pot


So much going on in so many different places, but this show really helped me bringing everything together and it turned out into one of my single favorite shows I’ve done at KPFK. First there’s the music, which includes a bevy of tributes, to recently passed away Gerry Goffin and Horace Silver, to the season of Summer and the end of Spring with Love and Dungen, giveaways and new music from Lee Fields, Foreign Exchange, Miles Tackett, The Beta Club and others…highlight of the show is certainly the interview and performance from Zara McFarlane (separate post coming). Back to back weeks of some of the best interviews in our short time on the air and we’re just getting started here in Year 5 on KPFK. Next week it’s the end of the month, so we’re all on vinyl and should have a guest DJ set from Nick Waterhouse!
