I started listening to reggae music on my local college radio station when I was in high school without really knowing what it was.
For me, it was exotic, a place I wanted to find out about, welcoming but it felt out of reach, particularly since college radio DJ’s have a way of playing amazing music but not ever telling you much about it.
It was …

One of the best things about living in Los Angeles is the Hollywood Bowl.
If you’ve been, you know what I mean.
If you haven’t been, you owe it yourself and your loved ones to experience one of the greatest live performance venues ever constructed. Situated against the Hollywood Hills, comfortably distanced from its teaming city surroundings, the Bowl is arguably the beating heart of the …

That night at the Gibson, as part of a benefit show for KCRW, the electricity and …
