Broad Strokes

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

Boy with the Ice-Cream Face will be playing a live acoustic set, so check it out.

Broad Strokes Live Tonight at Nine

Tonight at nine, I will be doing my monthly radio show, Broad Strokes, on Washington Heights Free Radio (WHFR).  To listen to the show, go to WHFR and click on Listen listed on top of the menu bar.

It’s been awhile since I have done a show.  So, I’m trying to keep my anxieties at bay.

However, I am excited, because I know this will be fun.  Especially since it is for the first time this year, 2010!

The show is live and direct from WHFR’s home: an apartment in Washington Heights.

I fine this inspiring, that you can do anything once you set your mind to it.  You can have a radio show in your apartment if you can dream, believe, be flexible and most of all endure.

Because I’ve been M.I.A for awhile,  I wanted to include so much on this broadcast.  But there is no time.  What I will do, however, is explain my absence on the air web.

WHFR has been experiencing some technical and financial difficulties, such as needing a new computer, and being a non-profit/grassroots web station they have and are doing most of this out of pocket.
