Mixed with Tillman Bussey
Monday at 9 -10 am
On the air, I’ve always been known as TXB. Back in the early 2000’s, I co-produced a TV show with L.A. Hernandez called Live. Later on, I produced a show called Hotspot. In that same time period, myself along with L.A. Hernandez, and George Utrilla Angulo did a radio show, which was just a cable broadcast with no video. My goal is to entertain and inform my audience at the highest level.
Let’s listen to some tunes. Let’s talk about things happening on the planet. Let’s mix it up, and you can call in and add your ingredients into the mixing bowl.

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.
