Today DJ ALF presents his latest WFMU summer series mix "Are You Comfortable," Kimzilla runs down ish and intros 92 year old Miss Lola offering some sound life advice (that's her pictured on playlist: both now and about 70 years ago). New music will include the featured album of the week - "Isskootsik" on Cabin Games by Gyasi Ross who is a member of the Blackfeet Indian Nation.Today will include a lot of latter 1990's DJ produced tracks - many of the BOMB label. And I will rewind back to 1993 to a "KUSF Blunted Hip-Hop" special I did with guests including Del The Funky Homosapien, B-Real, C-Funk, Mozilla, and Funkyman + World Premiere by DJ Needlz
