Being the only one who is English-speaking in the household can present its rewards and challenges. Thus, there was no show on January 11, 2018. However a makeup show was done the following day and new listeners came to join me. In particular, we had a Spanish playlist, contributed by one of the new listeners, Camille from Richmond, Ca who took the time to collaborate with me in finding which songs to play for the show. I hope you enjoy the Spanish set, as well as all of the music played for this show.
Happy New Year to each and every one of you. I happened to have a bad night, which meant there was no show on January 4. Thus, I made up for this by doing a makeup show. Hope you all enjoy and hope to be back on my normal scheduled time next week.

The Melting Pot debuts a brand-new Yamaha MG12XU mixer that is paired to a Tascam 4x4 in the style of 1989. Despite the attempt to bring folks on air, the mixer and USB interface performed well.

Rembrandts surprised us with an opening song from a show called Friends, I'll Be There For You. More surprises came to us in the form of a few Twitter followers who informed DJ Mando that they were joining the fun. In addition, his older brother, Tony, along with his crew from a local Rent-a-center were tuned into the show via an app called Tunein Radio and requested a few songs. DJ Mando got so carried away, he made a special set for Tony to enjoy. Some of the artists and songs that were played include: Pearl Jamm- The Last Kiss, Los Tigres del Norte- Golpes En El Corrazon and Industria del amor- Suspirar. We ended the show with an announcement pertaining to next week's show. Please stay tuned to Twitter, Facebook and/or text message, since dJ mando turns a year older on May 4, 2017 and may not be hitting the airways. If however The Melting Pot does happen, we will focus primarily on the year 1981, since it's the year dJ Mando was born.
