most of the artwork on today's playlist is by Denver based, featured artist Thomas "Detour" Evans - Today's interview Kalyn Heffernan recorded in Denver at start of the week/long weekend. Shout out to DJ Throdown - the 2018 DMC US Finals winner (battle was in Denver @ Temple last Sunday).Shout out to Casey Karns @ Meadowlark Kitchen in Denver featuring most of the Detour art featured + where we have done this show live from in past. Shout out to DJ AL in Denver for hooking me up with his new LL Cool J (goin back to Cali) remix + shout out to Shareef Hakim for hooking me up with tons of great new music including RAST and Buddy Leezie. The latter artist's song "Kahlo Meets Picasso" inspired the art theme of today's show. Also shout out to Bronwyn B who is doing board-op engineering today, to Mr Fine Wine up next who was featured in yesterday's New York Times + to U for listening to F M U know - thanks you

Can't vote for anyone if you're not registered. Contact your local election board if you have any doubts. Go, Kalyn!
Avatar Fri. 8/10/18 7:09pm Billy Jam:

@Bronwyn - me too -wish I was resident of Denver so that I could vote for her

@Ken: As soon as I moved to Gainesville, I went to the Board of Elections to register to vote.....

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 8/10/18 7:14pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Good deal, ngh. That and procuring a library card are top priorities. And a driver's license, if applicable.
Avatar Fri. 8/10/18 7:16pm northguineahills:

My wife and are so enamored w/ Frida, she went as Kahlo one year for Halloween.

@Ken: I haven't changed my address on my driver's license since HS, so when I got my first ticket last month, and got a warning that I needed to change it, I was a wee bit confused (changed it that week).
Avatar Fri. 8/10/18 7:18pm northguineahills:

( I would just renew my license online or in person and not worry about the address, as I never needed one w/ a NY address).
Avatar Fri. 8/10/18 7:21pm Billy Jam:

hey Ken from Hyde Park and NGH - yo NGH when is last time you heard hip-hop song that reference Frida Kahlo?
Avatar Fri. 8/10/18 7:22pm northguineahills:

@Billy: TBH, never, gotta send it to my wife...

I'm out Billy, paz y amor mis amigos!
Avatar Fri. 8/10/18 7:41pm Billy Jam:

admittedly I am biased but I just love every damn track so much today - and like how, even though it is technically one genre - hip-hop, it in fact is covering all genres - this one jazz, the last one rock, upcoming classical song - hip-hop reworking of "pomp and circumstance I" by Edward Elgar
Avatar Fri. 8/10/18 7:41pm Billy Jam:
