A GUEST SET ON THE JAZZ ADVANCE SHOW

NewImage

This past Friday, I was a guest DJ for Jeffery Plankser’s Jazz Advance show on Dublab. Jeffery came up with “Blue Coolaid” to name this particular show as we spun soul-jazz tunes for two hours. It was an excuse for me to pull out some of my soul-jazz faves, both new and old. Listen here.

DEEP/UNDER/COVER WITH MICHAEL BARNES ON DUBLAB

A post shared by Oliver W./Soul Sides (@soulsides) on Jun 30, 2017 at 4:12pm PDT

Michael Barnes and I recently got to guest host a show on Dublab. For many years, Dublab’s been one of the premier internet stations but on the day we hosted (6/30), it was their very second day as a terrestrial radio station as well, micro-broadcasting on 99.1 FM in parts of Los Angeles. Michael and I both got our start, many years ago, at KALX 90.7 FM in […]

SHADES OF SOUL, EP 2.12: SUMMER JAMS FEAT. DJ EXPO

Shades of Soul, EP 2.12: Summer Jams. feat. DJ Expo by Soul-Sides.Com/O. Wang on Mixcloud

For my latest Shades of Soul (summer) episode, I invited DJ Expo, of L.A.’s Motown on Mondays fame.

As I’m doing all summer, I asked my guests to bring in a slew of summer songs and Expo came with a smooth selection, including that DeRobert and Half-Truths 7″ I totally snoozed on.

SHADES OF SOUL EP. 2.11: SUMMER JAMS FEAT. MORGAN RHODES

Shades of Soul, EP 2.11: Summer Jams feat. Morgan Rhodes by Oliver Wang on Mixcloud

For my latest Shades of Soul (summer) episode, I invited DJ and music supervisor, Morgan Rhodes. Morgan and I frequently pair up for the new music segment every Tuesday on KPCC and she, herself, hosts an early morning show on KPFK and used to be at KCRW. She’s pretty much hit for the L.A. public radio cycle.

As I’m doing all […]

SHADES OF SOUL, EP 2.9: THE START OF SUMMER

Bad news first: I’m not going to be able to do the conventional Summer Songs series this summer. I was too busy to get it organized in time to invite guests and handle all the logistics for it.

Good news: now that I have a radio show, I’m going to use it to invite people to come thru and do summer song sets instead!

We can start with my own contribution to kick off the start of what feels like summer (at least here in L.A.!)

SHADES OF SOUL 2.8: THE CUT CHEMIST INTERVIEW

Shades of Soul EP 2.8: The Cut Chemist Interview by Oliver Wang on Mixcloud

This one had been in the works for a minute but with his touring schedule, it was hard to fit in until now. Me and Cut Chemist sat down and chopped it up for nearly 90 minutes, talking about his life and career, plus the formative songs that go with both. It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of his work, whether within […]
