Hunnypot Radio Live DJ Set / Favorite Tunes and Times of 2012

Screen Shot 2012-12-25 at 3.50.25 PM

A week ago on Monday, while most other bloggers were posting their year end lists I was lucky enough to get to share mine on a live radio show.

Every other Monday night, Hunnypot Radio hosts a live show at a local venue with two industry professional guest “DJs” and two live acts.  I was invited to participate as an “industry professional” “DJ” in the last show of the year.  Whenever I hear my name mentioned as a professional in the music industry, I feel like I’ve somehow pulled one over on them, hence the quotes.  And thankfully, DJing in this case just means choosing ten songs and burning two CDs, hence the second use of quotes.

Still though, even without doing my own spinning, it was pretty cool to hear my song picks played at a club.  And everyone seemed to enjoy.

Since I am unable to put together a collection of songs without some sort of connection, I thought it was only appropriate to assemble some of my favorites of the year.

Tadpole Audio Presents…Love Letters To LA: Pianos Live

By Amanda DK

Have you noticed anything different about Los Angeles lately?  Something unusual, out of place?  An infestation, if you will, but one…that is musical in nature?

For the past couple weeks the city has become home for the latest installation of Play Me, I’m Yours, a sprawling, free public art installation, where 30 pianos painted by local artists will be placed in high-traffic public spaces around the city – and anyone can play them! The project was conceived by a London artist, then went to NYC, and is now in Los Angeles.  You can view all the piano locations here – most of them can be found Downtown, but there are a few mid-city, a couple in Santa Monica, even ones in Torrance and Burbank.  The piano I would especially like to point out to you is outside of the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.
