Jazzed
Monday at 4 – 5 pm

Jazzed, hosted by Petaluma resident Ed Perlstein, will bring an array of classic and contemporary jazz music to the airwaves at KPCA.  Ed’s love of jazz grew out of his music photography, having photographed the Berkeley Jazz Festival during the late 70s for BAM (Bay Area Music) Magazine.  You’ll hear music from Charlie Parker to Charlie Hunter, Dave Brubeck to Dave Grusin, and Dizzy to Duke.  Sit back, get jazzed and enjoy this truly American art form.

Lulu has an eclectic musical taste that spans generations, genres and continents.  More often than not, a Lunchbreak spent with Lulu will revolve around a theme – songs featuring clapping, whistling, days of the week – even murder.  She doesn’t take herself too seriously, and neither should you.  Tuesday at noon has never sounded so good. 

 

The Dr. Angela Hour
Tuesday 5 – 6 pm

Welcome to the Dr. Angela Hour.  Do you control your mind, or does it control you?  A talk show delving into a range of mind-brain, brain-body, spirit/soul, personal/political, life/afterlife, and other topics, such as:  What is the mind and why do we have one?  How much say do we have in our own behaviors and feelings?  What is “normal” mental health and what is not?  What is this thing called happiness; can we be happy?  What is unhappiness, sadness, depression?  Issues of sleeplessness, anxiety, fear, trauma.  Addictions to sex, love, relationships, people.  Problem emotional patterns & traps, how to break free.  Addictions to pills, pot, alcohol, other drugs.  What is gambling all about?  Is it healthy?  Keys to creativity and why these matter.  The spirit and the self, who and whatever these are.  Life, death, loss, grief, and issues of after-life possibilities.  How do we think; are we free to think freely/clearly? and much more.  Dr. Angela, also known as author, speaker, psychologist and social worker, Dr. Angela Browne-Miller, will delve into all this, sometimes solo, sometimes with guests, sometimes with listeners’ questions.  Email Dr. Angela with your questions at DrAngelaHour@DrAngela.com

The Rabbit Hole

Wednesday 6 – 7 pm

Music can spark memories or result in discovery, creating a chain reaction that leads the listener on a musical journey that may never end. This is how The Rabbit Hole was conceived; it is representative of my memories and discoveries that result from my love of actively listening to music, continuously doing research, and always learning something new. Each show has a defined starting point, but where my listeners and I end up is a mystery. This is The Rabbit Hole.

 

The Film Score with DDD

On The Film Score, I will be playing any and all types of music from films. From symphonic scores to popular radio hits. If it’s part of a movie soundtrack I’ll play it. And maybe a little trivia, too.

Metaluma
9 – 11 pm

This is Eric Lee here, bass player for the local band Hellbender! I am thrilled to be the host of Metaluma Radio! I’ve been listening to metal since I was a kid growing up here in Petaluma. I always loved music since I can remember, but things really got going around ’83 when the first sounds of thrash metal started circulating around my friends at Petaluma High School. Bands like Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Exodus, and Death Angel were just starting out only had demo tapes that us kids were trading amongst each ourselves, through word-of-mouth, or printed magazines. I started playing bass guitar in a thrash metal band back then and my love for metal just kept growing! I fell in the love with the music, the aggression, the horror, the lyrics, the art work, everything about it changed me forever!! That music spawned several new generations of Metal thru the ’80’s to the present day. Fast forward to now & metal is still alive and breathing FIRE in this town!!
So grab a cold one, CRANK UP IT LOUD & HORNS UP FOR METALUMA RADIO!!!! Welcome children of the night!!!
