The Inspiration InitiativeGet in the zone for 2018 with host Luke Davids on this week's episode of The Inspiration Initiative featuring music all about leaving the old behind and embracing the new you.

Camila Cabello20 year-old Camila Cabello (photo left) and Lily Kershaw (photo right) help DJ Andy Bargerstock bring in the new year by anchoring first and second hours (respectively) of this week's program with music from off-the-beaten path that deserves to be mainstream. After Camila's program opening song "Havana" featuring Young Thug, both Pentangle and Brown Bird subsequently offer twin-spins. Listen closely for The Brother Brothers (who played recently at Cafe Paradiso in Fairfield) and songs from the band, Darlingside, and singer/instrumentalist savant Rhiannon Giddens.

In the second-hour Lily Kershaw (photo below) collaborates with SYML on an English-French version of "Where's My Love" and then SYML goes solo on "Fear of the Water." The rest of the second-hour Chill Session features the New Zealand band Fat Freddy's Drop and Joe Dukie & DJ Fitchie. Bask in the swoon of the final 25 minutes with soft bluesy drifting jazz improvisations with the UK Lily Kershaw1970s band Soft Machine.

I shall continue mining my memories for their entertainment value. The Feed Store with Ken Mottet. Thursdays at 10AM CT and Sundays at Noon CT. Be there. Aloha.
