Hey all! It’s a magical, lovely, wonderful Friday, and best of all it’s spring in Texas. Take a moment when you’re out today to check out these great trees and plants we got around us. They are pretty cool the way they come up green and lovely every spring. Let’s feel that renewal; let’s roll it up in a tiny ball and eat it*; let’s digest it and use all of its energy to keep getting better at stuff we’re doing. Maybe it’s being a nicer person? Use it. Maybe it’s learning a new skill? Use it. Maybe it’s impeaching Donald Trump? For the love of God, USE IT. Here’s a soundtrack for renewal, for being your awesome self, but better a little bit.

*Do not eat strange vegetation. This is a metaphor.

Well, I hope everybody’s ready for the steam train called “festival season” that’s about to crash into Austin with the beginning of South by Southwest.  You have t-minus seven days to complain/exalt about the city-wide party, and then just cool it everybody. This train doesn’t stop for whiners.  Here’s a mix. It’s chill ’cause the city is about not to be. Bump it loud.

One other thing: KOOP Community Radio 91.7FM is currently in Membership Drive, which is where we ask you, the community to support us. We only ask twice a year, unlike some bars I know (how do I get “regular status” at drink.well without spending any money, you guys?), and we sure could use whatever amount you could donate. We also have a sweet shirt this year, and a live compilation CD on offer.  Listen to Hip Hop Hooray on Sunday at 2pm and you might even get an extra thank you gift from yours truly! If you can give now, please do so here, and thank you millions.

It’s nearly the end of the month and it’s clear to us all now that April just plain sucked (unless you got married or whatever – congrats).

I made this mix for you including new tracks from k-os, Das Racist, RZA, Shlohmo, The Hood Internet, Lakutis, and Zilla Rocca so you can start early. Love you guys.
