I am very happy to be blogging live in the studio, here to announce some fabulous developements....we have selected our official resident Dj Posse and the winner is.... Housewerk LA!! I'll be featuring one or two mixes per month as they are just that inspiring and representative of the Space Hop Shanti Sun vibe of love, life, positive energy and bliss.
Now I must admit being a Los Angeles native has brought me joy and everlasting bliss at the quality music brought to the airwaves by HousewerkLA. The mixes are underground yet global, refreshing yet reasuringly seasoned in their consciousness and emotional resonance. In short the Housewerk LA Dj 'Posse' is nothing short of excellent, inspirational and of the divine heart. I can feel the love each dj puts into their work and this is what sets HousewerkLA appart! BIG LOVE HOUSEWERKLA!

"Little boys have action toys for brains.
We're living proof it can last a long time"
Mike Ragogna: Thanks again for visiting us at solar-powered KRUU-FM... We're trying hard, in our own way, to make a difference.
Dave Matthews: That's very cool. Oddly, I think, at least publicly, you are the only solar-powered radio station I have ever spoken to, so doesn't that say a lot?
Shelby Lynn: "I think every radio station should be solar-powered!"
Matthews owns 1,340 acres of farmland near Scottsville, Virginia where he grows organic vegetables, flowers, and herbs through a community-supported agriculture program. The organic farm is called, "Best of What's Around," named after one of his band's songs. Matthews also serves on the board of Farm Aid, along with Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp and Neil Young.

A travelogue of sorts Thursday 2-4 PM. I have picked out 26 songs that tell a small story about movement. This playlist cracks me up, because when I went through and listened to the whole thing myself, I really enjoyed it, more than I expected. Starting off with the Canned Heat classic 'On The Road Again', the long version with the amazing guitar/harmonica coda. Next up, 'The Letter', by The Box Tops, a number one single for four weeks back in 1960 and 7. Later through the show I have three other singles that charted, 'Up, Up, and Away', 'Riders On the Storm', and 'Born To Wander'....anyone know the band names? Anyone? Some other highlights to mention: 'I'm on The Lamb, But I Ain't No Sheep' by Blue Oyster Cult, 'Call Me The Breeze' by Lynyrd Skynyrd, 'Driftin and Driftin' by The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, and 'Beyond The Blue Horizon' by Mike Nesmith & The First National Band.
The musical year in review reveals enough musical creativity for several of my shows--taking up the rest of the year.
Alot of critics were blown away by Kanye West's new CD. I was "mehed" by it--especially his intentional (god, I hope it was intentional) off-key singing, and inconsistent rhymes. But I found something worthy of your listening
Eminem's "Recovery" was also released last year. Compared to Kanye, his highs were higher and his lows were lower into the gutter.
My vote for the possibly-best CD of the year goes to Arcade Fire's "The Suburbs." The Montreal-based, surprisingly anglophonic group cannot be readily categorized, except to say that their melodies are fresh and their arrangements nearly perfectly understated.
