KPFK’s One Track Mind With Guest DJ Jazzabella – January 5th, 2018


Back when I regularly hosted a show on KPFK, I’d wanted to bring in Jazzabella for a guest DJ set. She’s one of LA’s most versatile DJs, and I really wanted to see what kind of set she would create on Melting Pot. Getting a chance to fill-in for Kristi Lomax on her show One Track Mind provided the opportunity to bring Jazz in and she was more than happy to swing by from a brief interview at the end of the first hour, and then two fantastic Guest DJ sets in the 2nd hour. Got a chance to play a few records that were added to my collection in 2017, one of which, the soundtrack to the Bollywood film Taqdeer Ka Badshah, brought one of the members of Freedom Now (heard on KPFK, Saturdays from 11-12noon) into the studio tripping out that I was playing the sounds, and she came on the airwaves during my mic-break to discuss a little bit about the sounds and their place with the Indian/Punjabi Diaspora…rare moment of exceptional serendipity that was lovely to bring on to the air. Just a really fantastic night overall. Got one more week, and if all goes well, it will be an even greater party as Ethos and Canyon of Subsuelo will be our guests! Enjoy the sounds!!!
