Fog City Blues: Blonde Toledo

Jan 24, 2018

Blonde Toledo plays American Music, or you might say, music of the Americas, as Blues, Rock, Salsa, or Cumbia all come from foreign lands, transplanted here, and each have put down deep roots in our western soil. 

This music is by Aireene Espiritu, a singer/songwriter living in Oakland. She mostly plays original songs incorporating Latin and African rhythms, folk, and inspirations from gospel music – your basic mix of Americana. 

This week on KALW's showcase for the best stories from public radio podcasts and independent radio producers...


The Mission Seven live on Fog City Blues tonight

Jul 29, 2015

The Mission Seven is on a mission to return dance music to its fun roots with a mixture of Latin Soul, Boogaloo, Cumbia, hard driving beats, and a retro garage edge. Taking a human approach with real drums and percussion, a soulful horn section, and vintage guitar and bass, their sound is sophisticated without being stuffy, and very dance floor friendly. They join host Devon Strolovitch live in the studio tonight (Wednesday 7/29) at 9 pm.
