Last month I did my radio show, Broad Strokes, on Washington Heights Free Radio (WHFR), and it was a blast! I was so relaxed, and perhaps even funny.
I really enjoyed the playlist I came up with. I think it’s probably one of my best.
Anyway, this show is dedicated to Paul Squires, an amazing poet and friend who passed away recently. Miss you Paul, you were the lantern in the darkness.
Read his blog, it’s amazing.
You can listen to the me, Dj Calypso Sally, here: Broad Strokes.

I will be on the air again this coming Wednesday, August 25 at 8:00 p.m. with the band, The Boy With the Ice-Cream Face. The name of this band reminds me of a William Carlos Williams poem: The Red Wheelbarrow
The Red Wheelbarrow
so much depends
a red wheel
glazed with rain
beside the white
Boy with the Ice-Cream Face will be playing a live acoustic set, so check it out.
Also, if you’re in a band or know someone who is, and would like to be on the show, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

cocoyea, you are so fucking cool. paul would definitely be proud.
That’s sounds like a lot of fun – congrats and I’m sure Paul would have loved it (well he probably listened to it anyway, somehow).
Great program, Calypso Sally! and the Red Wheelbarrow is up there among my recently discovered favorites. That image you have used! The broken wine glass on the piano. Perfectly appropriate for your dedication to Paul, though chilling. (x)
glad to have stopped by, love the foto… pianos always have a story to tell…. i like how you sed you were happy, relaxed and funny!!!… some great picks in that list too…. funny how a person can leave such a big empty hole where he once lived… i like to think paul is still hanging around in a totally different way with the same ol coolness… and that poem, it is a wonderful blend of color and thought.. it is the simple things we care so much about… take care,
i was thinking of what to write, um, just ‘this is great’ or something and the dog next door started howling, cuz i’m playing the tracks pretty loud, 2nd floor, windows open, early evening. anyway, its a wonderful thing, thanks for doing this broadcast
