It was a positive week with peaceful protests and rallies were happening in the US and across LA. Coming into the studio and trying to create a set that touches on the human spirit and mood while still trying to help folks feels easy, but it’s not. I hope you enjoy this weekend’s sets + the Birthday Prince set on Sunday!  Ill be away for the next two weeks on KCRW but you know where you can catch me on Sunday nights!
