    The Urban Landscapes Radioshow

    Urban Landscapes hits the airwaves Friday evenings from 9-11pm PST on KCPR 91.3 FM, as well as via live mp3 streaming on the Internet at http://www.kcpr.org/.

    If you miss the live show, you can listen anytime via the Urban Landscapes web site at http://www.urbanlandscapesshow.com. The international edition of the show will be online within a few days after the live broadcast. You'll find the links at the bottom of the site's home page.

    As always, be sure to tell your friends about the show...and feel free to pass this circular on!

    Happy New Year to everyone. I hope that your holidays have been festive wherever you are in the world. Here we are in the year 2004 and getting ready for another year filled with good music, dope mixes, and much more.

    And speaking of music, I'm really excited about the good stuff that's been sent to me (or I've otherwise acquired) during the last month or so. The next two shows (6.1 & 6.2) will help me to wither down the pile, and in a good way I might add. Starting with 6.3, the Urban Landscapes Guestmix will commence at full-speed ahead. A new guestmix will be featured every other week from that point on, and let me tell you that I'm already in possession of some really dope mixes. Other guestmixes either are or will soon be in the works. More details coming soon.

    Now you must be asking "wassup with this 6.1, 6.2" thingie? As of this week's broadcast, the Urban Landscapes Radioshow is marking six years on the air. You might not know it where you are, but trust me on this one...it's been a good journey so far. Starting off its humble beginnings as a trip-hop/ambient show, it's mutated and taken on a variety of sounds. Yet, the show's roots lie with jazz and soul. With that, the number 6 is designated as the year and the .x represents the week of the show. There you have it. Your quiz will come later.

    (local event)

    After deciding to delay the event during November and December, we will soon be kicking off our monthly Soul Invasion Dance Party at the SLO Brewing Company. Mark your calendar if you are in the San Luis Obispo area for Wednesday January 28 starting at 10pm. More details are coming soon.

    So I've been promising you my Most Recommended Music of 2003...sorry to have left y'all hangin'. As I've mentioned back in early December, 2003 wasn't quite what 2001 & 2002 were musically. Still, there were enough quality material that came through and earned thier places, and even some that I'm just starting to discover in 2004.

    Unlike last year, I haven't the time to dish out explanations on my picks..but feel free to ask or otherwise inquire if you choose to do so and I'll give you my take as best I can. And now without further ado, here are my picks for the year:
